About Case Management

The Case Management team manages all aspects of our services that utilise PEGA and EMC Documentum technologies. These underpin our strategic services for work and content management, and are currently used by over 20,000 of HMRC's staff. The team will oversee and support an increase in these numbers, through the development of all new services in these areas.
These developments are fundamental to delivery of HMRC's organisational strategy and commitments to increase tax yield collected.

CMDG specialises in the provision of systems underpinning HMRC Case and Content Management Services. CMDG technology platforms are based on software provided by Pega Systems, EMC Documentum, xCP and OpenText Brava.

CMDG is well underway in adopting an Agile Delivery Framework, a DevOps culture and implementing the tools and technologies to underpin them. CMDG is keen to recruit staff with experience, or at least good familiarity with Agile and DevOps, and the mind-set to adopt and adapt them.

DevOps is a new practice emerging from the combination of practices in both Development and Systems Operations. It is a software development and delivery practice that spans both practices and is concerned with fast delivery and deployment of new software by taking an agile approach to systems management. Systems as well as software should be test driven by design, and the process should be automated as much as possible. It would be desirable for you to have experience in a DevOps working environment or have some DevOps skills, but not essential, as we can provide training and take you with us on this exciting new journey.
