*NEW RESEARCH* Case Study: DWP takes credit for firm Universal Credit database foundation

Case Study: DWP takes plaudits for Universal Credit database foundationThe UK government’s Universal Credit (UC) service has not garnered the best of reputations for a variety of different reasons. But the performance of its digital services in the face of surging demand from hundreds of thousands of new claimants during last year’s Coronavirus lockdowns suggest the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has got something right.

It's reliance on MongoDB and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host its UC database helped the department scale up provision to meet unprecedented demand in the Spring of 2020. And it also illustrates a wider move towards in-house development teams and the use of public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) resources to support new application and service creation.
