GovTech leader Civica has announced a new sporting partnership with the Royal Corps of Signals, the British Army’s specialists in IT, Cyber and Telecommunications.
The deal will directly support the development of the Royal Signals’ football and golfing teams, which include serving personnel, reservists and veterans. As part of the package, the Royal Signals’ football teams will benefit from state-of-the-art VEO technology, providing coaches with vital data and insights which can be used to demonstrate mistakes and improve player performance.
A leading provider of software across the public sector, both in the UK and globally, Civica has a close partnership with the UK Ministry of Defence and has delivered a number of key projects to drive digital transformation across the armed forces. These include:
- Creating the Army’s Data Governance Office;
- Establishing a Data Governance operating model;
- Implementing effective Data Quality Management; and,
- Leading a Data Upskilling Programme in support of Project THEIA to define the data skills that are needed across Defence and ensure that targeted training is available to all who need it.
