nine23 Announces RAF Contract Win
LONDON, January 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
nine23, working in partnership with SBL, is delighted to announce it has been awarded the RAF's Project LINK contract which will deliver a mobility programme tailored specifically to meet the needs of the RAF and its personnel. The contract was competed for over a 30-day period and was won in the face of stiff competition.
Project Link is a landmark trial that marks the start of the RAF's innovative vision for the implementation of an RAF mobile strategy which will drive down operating costs and increase capability by harnessing the operational effectiveness and resource efficiencies inherent in mobile technology.
nine23's technical solution is centred on the creation of the RAF's own Enterprise level App Store - an easy-to-use mobile application solution that secures all corporate data on mobile devices. In addition to enabling distribution and management of apps and content, the RAF App Store will enable enterprise grade security on a per-app basis, delivered via Symantec's unique Mobile Device and Content Management System (MDM & CMS).
nine23 will manage and deliver the trial with the RAF at both RAF High Wycombe and RAF Brize Norton. Over 8GB of flight documentation and training systems will be digitised as part of the project, supporting the RAF's Fleet of C17 Globemasters with Apple iPad and iPad minis. Secured Cloud-based data storage will provide additional assurance and security to the project trial.
nine23 Chairman, Rear Admiral Philip Wilcocks CB DSC, commented: "nine23 feels privileged to be able to support the RAF in this trial to develop their vision for the use of mobile technology in providing considerably enhanced operational capability. We look forward to the successful conclusion of this trial later this year, potentially leading to a force wide roll out of the very latest in mobile technology in the future."
