Platforms (Infrastructure as a Service provisions) currently host around 80 live services and microservices, with more in development.

Our Client is modernising its Platform provision to enable greater automation of development including automatic scaling, reduced support costs, as well as reduced risks of human error.

Migration of services to the new platform reutilises shared central Home Office infrastructure and will allow us to decommission the existing CHDP platform, thereby enabling cost savings.

Platform modernisation plays a significant part of the HMPO strategy to exit its contracts with DXC in April 2021 and is a key enabler for new digital services to operate.

Continued maintenance of our existing CHDP platform is mission critical in being to support HMPO digital services including the management of existing relationships with key stakeholders

Utilising existing knowledge greatly de-risks platform maintenance and re-utilises existing knowledge to ensure incidents can be managed in accordance with SLA’s and supports migration efforts to the EBSA platform.

A Dev-Ops engineer is therefore required to oversee incidents, meet security standards and maintain service continuity for our critical services.
