Our work

Strategic change to improve outcomes

Working with CDS means better customer experiences, transformed technology environments, more effective, cheaper to run operations, and the ability to focus on core activities while outsourcing anything that is non-core.

Have a look at some of our work which has produced game-changing, even life-changing, results.

Client Testimonials

What our clients say about us

“The migration to the Azure platform was a great piece of collaborative work between CDS and the SOH National Digital Team, something that was delivered successfully in a very tight timeline. What I am really looking forward to now is leveraging the technical opportunities this move has opened up for us. We delivered the migration whilst continuing to serve the public and with minimal end user impact. Since migrating we have experienced 100% service uptime which is key when hosting a national platform providing essential services to the UK public.”
