Like many global industries, the pandemic has presented the defence sector with significant and unexpected challenges.
The Canadian Defence Team’s 24,000 civilian employees had to shift to the home office. Given civilian workers’ access to sensitive information and rigid security protocols, most computer-based work was previously carried out ‘on-premises’. The move to the home office has therefore been a significant shift for defence organizations – requiring them to rethink their approach to technology.
The pandemic-driven challenges have only strained existing issues faced by the broader defence industry when it comes to remote work. Amid a backdrop of ongoing military engagements and important time-sensitive projects, the ability to enable secure, time-sensitive, remote computing has been a significant pain point for some time – with the Department of National Defence (DND) struggling to keep up with remote computing needs across Canada’s 68,000 active military, 27,000 reservists, and numerous specialists, contractors and collaborators.
