BearingPoint wins enterprise data warehouse contract

BearingPoint has been awarded the prime contract for the design, development and support of the Defence Logistics Organisation’s (DLO) Enterprise Data Warehouse project, a key component of the DLO’s Logistics Information Systems strategy for the UK’s Ministry of Defence.

The initial contract is valued at more than £2m, which could potentially increase to £5m if all options are exercised.

The contract tendering process was managed by the Logistic Applications Integrated Project Team, a team within the Defence Communication Services Agency responsible for the delivery of coherent, integrated logistic information services to the Ministry of Defence.

The DLO requires a structured, accurate and centralized data repository for logistics management information, sometimes referred to as a “single version of the truth.” The goal of the project is to create a warehouse of data for all defence logistics information users.

The DLO Enterprise Data Warehouse will encapsulate information from many of the current and future logistics systems supporting both rotary and fixed wing aircraft fleets for the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and Army. It will also have the capability to support land platforms and Whole Fleet Management.

The Enterprise Data Warehouse will offer the capability to merge data from not only the operational domains, but also from other domains such as finance and human resources. This will build a richer and more accurate “single version of the truth,” giving operational commanders and defence logistics managers greater shared situational awareness. The Enterprise Data Warehouse will be based on Teradata technology, and will include advanced business intelligence tools and Web access.

BearingPoint will provide a design, development and support service for an initial three-year period, working closely with Integrated Project Teams across the DLO and Defence Procurement Agency to develop the Enterprise Data Warehouse in response to agreed business cases.

BearingPoint has previously delivered defence logistics programmes for the US, German and Australian defence communities.
