Atturra extends strategic partnership with AU air force

Atturra, a technology services business in designing, implementing and maintaining IT solutions, has reaffirmed its partnership with the Royal Australian Air Forces Air Command, the operational command of Air Force, extending the terms of a strategic business transformation and decision support project.

According to Atturra, the transformation is centred on a fit-for-purpose preparedness management system that aligns strategy to task.

The extension comes at a critical time for the project, according to Atturra's management control solutions executive general manager, Petar Bielovich.

"Throughout our partnership, Air Command has adopted a co-development and agile approach," he says.

"This has helped us produce practical solutions to management processes, assurance analytics and decision support applications."

Air Commands director of strategy and preparedness, Sarah Woodsell, says she sees this next phase of the transformation program as the most crucial for Air Command.

"Through this transformation and use of innovative decision support tools, Air Command can meet Air Forces strategy led, demand driven preparedness requirements," she says.

"We have strived to create solutions that cut through the complexities of an organisation such as ours. We have worked hard to really understand what it means to manage on and in the business of Air Command," Woodsell explains.
"We are now approaching the tipping point in our transformation," she says. "It is time to follow-through on the changes we have made and embed them into the way we work so that we can be responsive and capable in how we contribute to the ADF."

Air Commands director general preparedness, Air Commodore Nick Osborne, underscores the importance of the transformation and decision support capabilities in meeting strategic objectives.

"Preparedness is a central pillar of the Air Force Strategy 2020 and on which Air Command must deliver," he says.

"Through the roll-out of this final phase of the transformation, Air Command can future-proof the delivery of air and space power that Air Force requires in service of Australia's national interests."

Bielovich reiterates Atturra Management Control Solutions commitment to the final phase of the program.

"We value Air Forces role in keeping Australia safe," he says.

"We appreciate and respect the gravity and significance of what they do and take seriously our part in supporting them. This worthy purpose fuels our genuine desire to see the transformation through to its completion."
