Defense & Security

The global defense and security landscape has fundamentally transformed in the last few decades. Traditional armies and war scenarios have been replaced with the need for quick reaction forces and defense against physical and cyber terror attacks. While defense budgets in the US and most of Europe have shrunk, spending in certain parts of Europe and in Asia Pacific is expected to pick up as a reaction to defense build-up in Russia and China. Affordability and risk-sharing business models continue to be front and center in government contracting. In light of declining budgets and increased ageing of fleets, focus will continue to shift more towards service excellence.

IT Enablement

Most A&D companies have a complex Information Technology (IT) and Systems infrastructure. At the same time, they need to maintain infrastructure and applications in order to facilitate future growth while balancing the need to maintain internal operating controls and regulatory compliance demands. FTI Consulting professionals identify potential risks to existing business systems and assist management with refining core systems that can be agile enough to address shifting market and regulatory demands. This requires a comprehensive yet nimble IT and systems strategy to facilitate growth and efficiencies leading to IT Enablement (leveraging Technology as an enabler for business imperatives). IT Enablement is being used to create a competitive edge not only in terms of increasing market share and revenue but also to avoid potential regulatory violations.
