HMRC Wins Digital Project of The Year

HMRC has won ‘Digital Project of the Year’ in awards held on 18 November.

The award recognises the progress HMRC has made in its ongoing digital transformation.

Specifically, the award recognises the Multi-Channel Digital Tax Platform. MDTP gives HMRC the agility and speed required by a digital-first organisation, while fully meeting requirements around legacy systems and security policies.

MDTP’s microservice architecture enables multiple agile teams to rapidly build, deploy and operate services, with enhancements going live almost daily.

Mark Dearnley, Chief Digital and Information Officer at HMRC, is quoted by Business Wire:
The Tax Platform is the foundation on which the Department’s digital future is being built. We can now deliver new services in just weeks not months, and make changes in hours not weeks. 

When people talk about inspirational use of technology, this is the kind of project they mean.”
Ryan Sikorsky, co-founder and Director at Equal Experts, said
It's wonderful to have our work recognised by judges at the UK IT Industry awards. It’s testimony to the power of our collaborative approach – we’re proud to have helped HMRC become a more open, digitally capable organisation, one with a strong focus on the needs of the public.
Well then it seems that, on the IT side at least, HMRC is a success story!

Comments anyone?

Tax does have to be taxing.
