HMRC Digital has created a platform that transforms software delivery within government.
By shifting focus to creating services for its customers and adopting modern open source technologies and agile practices, HMRC has been able to significantly increase the speed with which new products are produced while reducing cost and improving customer satisfaction. Scala + Play framework + MongoDB micro services underpin an open source stack which provides common components that reduce the cost and time for teams to deliver and iterate new products. This core has already enabled HMRC to grow the number of teams to over 20 in a short period of time.
