Strategic IT transformation for Metropolitan Police Service
The Metropolitan Police is the territorial police force responsible for law enforcement in Greater London, and its 8.6 million residents. In line with its strategic 2020 vision the Met engaged Keysource to support the evaluation, design and delivery for a number of IT and technical requirements.
Working as the Metropolitan Police Service‘s technology partner, Keysource was engaged to manage two critical data centres as part of their strategic transformation programme.
These highly secure, available and scalable data centres house critical IT systems supporting services such as emergency service communications which handle an average of 6,000 emergency 999 and 15,000 non-emergency calls every day.
A key aspect of the service is collaboration within the multi supplier ecosystem, to deliver end-to-end services.
