The Navy RPA Team has been built over a few years as they back filled the void left after Delloitte completed their contract delivery.
The Delloitte team numbers some twenty different contractors who filled diverse roles from Business Analysts, Rom Architects, Junior Developers and customer success executives.
This set the stage for defence to mature RPA across the Services and Groups using Navy as an exemplar. The Automations delivered by Deloitte at that time are used as widely as possible to ensure that the customer gets value for money.
The RPA Navy Team was delivered to sustain the Navy Automations at NPCMA while also looking to develop and deliver the Wave 2 and subsequent automations scoped by the Delloitte Delivery Team.
