Successful data management increasingly underpins all Defence activities

Let Robinson Ryan empower Australian Defence and Defence Industry to effectively capitalise on data assets.

Appropriate sharing of timely, accurate and trusted data across Defence and Government, Industry partners and Allies is critical to Defence effectiveness. Data management will be a ‘force multiplier’ for new capabilities such as RAAF fifth generation air capability, Navy’s SEA 5000 Future Frigate Program and Army’s Land 400 program.

Successful Defence data management depends on not just acquiring and storing data but delivering it to rapidly to Defence users in multiple locations, controlling its quality and protecting and enhancing its access throughout its lifecycle.

Our Techniques

Robinson Ryan use an Operating Model concept to develop the set of data strategies, plans, policies and practises required for a data eco-system. The Operating Model assists to convert the goals of the Data Strategy into operational implications. It will devise recommended structures, mechanisms, and processes covering stakeholders, organisational structures, data operation locations, communication methods, tools, performance measures, data quality measures, and governance mechanisms.
