Atturra's technology services business will be designing, implementing and maintaining IT solutions that are aimed to support the transformation centred on a fit-for-purpose preparedness management system that aligns strategy to task for the operational command of Air Force.

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

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


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

Atturra is an ASX-listed technology business providing a range of enterprise advisory consulting, IT services and solutions, with a focus on local government, utilities, education, defence and federal government, financial services and manufacturing industries.

Sarah Woodsell, Air Command’s director of strategy and preparedness, 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 Force’s strategy-led, demand-driven preparedness requirements.

"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."

The company has partnerships in place with leading global solutions providers including Microsoft, Boomi, Software AG, Smartsheet, QAD, Infor and Solace and Atturra's clients are some of the largest public and private-sector organisations in Australia.

"It’s 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.

"We are now approaching the ‘tipping point’ in our transformation," adds Woodsell.

Air Commodore Nick Osborne, Air Command’s director general – preparedness, notes the importance of this 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."

"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," adds AIRCDRE Osborne.

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

“We value Air Force’s role in keeping Australia safe.

"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," concludes Bielovich.
