Synopsis:

The presentation will take the audience through the evolution of the MPS ICT strategy detailing how we are transforming legacy application silos accessible largely only from desktops, into a new world where information is stored in a single logical POLE (Person, Object, Location, Event database) and is designed to be accessible from mobile devices wherever officers are deployed on the street. Gary will also cover the Met’s approach to agile development and experiences over the last 8 months.
