Description: Description: DII is the largest Defence IT programme of its type in the world, with an ultimate global footprint in the Fixed (UK mainland and overseas permanent sites), Mobile ('on the road' and homeworking), and Deployed and Maritime (supporting Operations, Exercises and routine working) environments. DII operates across all security domains. Aims: DII's approved aim is to deliver to Defence a secure and coherent information infrastructure at best value for money and to approved cost; this capability was approved partly on the basis that it will replace the MOD's costly and outdated legacy systems and deliver significant operational and efficiency benefits.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: DII is taking the following action to bring the remaining delivery challenges into line under a robust risk-adjusted plan. Above SECRET: Fixed rollout and the Deployed element has completed user acceptance trialling. Some residual performance issues are being addressed. Dependencies exist with other critical programmes of work to deliver the required capability and to enable the retirement of legacy systems. Deployed Maritime: Progressing well but subject to challenges to meet the Fleet's requirements at sea. Deployed Land: Work continues to address the impact of evolving requirements. Gateways: Testing continues on the initial International Gateway solution to enable information exchange with close allies and the retirement of the legacy gateway in 2013. Collaborative Software: A revised schedule for EDRMS (corporate records management) rollout has been agreed for completion in spring 2014. Web Browser: A pilot completed successfully in October 2012. Work is being completed to ensure MOD-wide applications' compatibility. Enterprise-wide rollout is anticipated to begin in April 2013.
