How digital defence can 
create winning advantage

Spotlighting defence
With digitalisation continuing to reshape Defence, we have gathered together expert voices from around the world to help turn ideas into transformed digital capability
The story of Defence is one of perpetual competition and adaptation. Today’s battlespace is shaped not only by kinetic weapons of war, but by a potent blend of data, technology and innovation that forms our digital world.  In this age of increased information warfare and information enabled warfare, the way these advances are deployed will be pivotal in achieving competitive advantage over adversaries.

Digitalisation of Defence means many things. It means rapidly accelerating the exploitation of advanced data analytics and Artificial Intelligence. It means updating outdated IT systems with consistent architecture, standards and processes and it means adapting and integrating the old with the new. It means timely, data-led decision making. And it means increasing the speed and agility through which new digital solutions are made available. But the question is how to achieve this?

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence has brought together expert voices from around the world to help chart the way to transformed digital capability for Defence.
