How we support the government
Governments are increasingly digitising what they do and because their work is essential in people’s lives and industries, any service interruption runs the increasing risk of having a measurable impact on people and industry.
When essential government services are not available, the impact can be felt quickly and acutely. Public confidence is eroded, or worse, people’s everyday lives are negatively impacted, and the flow of commerce is interrupted.
These are the systems that have become mission-critical in people’s lives, our communities, industries and help ensure the security of our country.
SECTION6 builds mission-critical software for government organisations—software that must be highly reliable, scalable, secure and adaptable, at speed. These characteristics are essential to ensure public confidence, public security and enhance and maintain the confidence and security of the economy.
Our government clients use our DevOps skills to integrate partner technologies and build software to help them achieve their mission beyond what they usually do with other vendors who are not focused on mission-critical software. We are proud of our government work. We know it makes a significant impact on people’s lives and keeps our communities and country safer.
Expertise we bring
Our expertise is at the edge of transformation—where maturity meets innovation and delivers you the maximum value. To enable you to gain the transformative benefits of software, we invest in those capabilities that align with our mission and purpose to build mission-critical software for organisations essential in people’s lives—meeting complex requirements by building software to be as simple as possible.
Knowing that the technology universe is continually expanding, we have identified six key capabilities that encapsulate the latest in mature technology innovation that we know enable our clients in the industries we serve to meet their goals better, faster, and for longer into the future.
DevOps enables business agility with improved reliability, economics, and security. DevOps is a practice that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops) and shortens the systems development through continuous delivery with a focus on software quality and security. DevOps is complementary to Agile software development. Together, delivering more reliably and to a higher standard of quality. Importantly DevOps helps address the increasing complexity of Software requirements and delivery.
While robotics automates work done by hand, cognitive automation focusses on work using our heads. Cognitive Automation simulates the human learning procedure to grasp knowledge from the dataset and extract the patterns on which it can make judgments that are often better and faster than humans. And because it can use many different data sources such as images, video, audio and text, its decision making is independent of the type and source of data. Cognitive automation unlocks and leverages all of your information together.
On-demand reflects the ability to deploy computing resources based on business needs rather than being restricted by physical constraints. Optimise your computing to provide the best client experience by moving the compute resource closer with edge computing for added speed and resilience. Centralise what you need for security and control. Burst out into the cloud to satisfy peak demand. Edge, cloud, on-premise, hybrid, and multi-cloud—where you need and want it—on-demand.
Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) encompasses embedded sensors, software and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet. IIoT devices monitor and control the physical mission system through real-time automation, including cognitive automation. Use IIoT to combine information technology with operational technology and help unleash the benefits of digital technology in the physical and biological world.
Cybersecurity includes information security and protects devices (IIoT) whose value is not just in any data and information but also in the physical tasks they may perform. We increase safety in the DevOps process by constantly adhering to and testing your security policies and requirements. And by injecting into the DevOps pipeline automated testing, static analysis, and the necessary security controls and checks along the DevOps lifecycle. Importantly we make our software easier and faster to adapt and deploy—so that you can respond more quickly when a new vulnerability is identified and patched.
Agile integration combines otherwise disparate islands of data, devices I(IIoT), and software functionality through integration and microservices inserted between software services, with minimal disruption. Aile integration builds on the principles and practices of agile software development by having an architecture that enables agility by decentralising both the executing platform and the developers that need to create the integrations. In keeping with agile principles, integration work is done by the people closest to the technologies that need to be integrated—people who are better placed to make decisions faster and complete work more efficiently.
OTHER MISSION-CRITICAL INDUSTRIES WE WORK WITH
Helping agencies with their missions to keep our people safe, communities feeling secure, and our country protected from external threats.
Working with energy providers with the challenge of combining operational technology with information technology to build smart grids.
Enabling financial services to be imagined, build, and deployed faster onto reliable and secure platforms.
Helping telecommunications providers and their business consumers to be faster and smarter to remain competitive.
Enabling integration horizontally along your supply chain and vertically into adjacent value chains. Adding value and doing more with less.
