DVLA publishes new IT Strategy

The DVLA has published its IT strategy, which outlines its focus and priorities for the next three years.

The agency, which has some of the government’s flagship digital services, is committed to using advances in technology to make things simpler, better and safer for its customers.

The IT strategy will enable the DVLA to deliver its recently published three year strategic plan, which focuses on uniting business, digital and technology with a goal to build dynamic online services with unrivalled safety and security.

The IT Strategy outlines plans to:

  • invest in an organisational restructure, bringing roles in-house and recruiting innovative IT professionals
  • migrate off legacy systems onto new platforms
  • operate a tri-model approach to technologies – innovating, leveraging and industrialising where appropriate
  • manage the DVLA’s technology lifecycle

Dave Perry, DVLA Chief Technology Officer, said: “Our aim is to become a hub for digital motoring. We are transforming our IT estate to deliver our digital transformation ambitions and create the best online services for customers.

“Our services are at the forefront of technology and our organisation design will be optimised to deliver migration from our legacy IT platforms. Our IT strategy will ensure we continue to deliver systems that are fit for the digital age in which we live.”
