Adam Smith International

Adam Smith International delivers ‘Model Office’ from cities to war zones.

What was the challenge?

  • Deliver consistent IT services to 250 employees and 1500 associates world-wide
  • Replace aging and unreliable systems with scalable services that are simple to manage
  • Make IT available securely in every location, from city offices to bunkers in war zones


For more than 20 years, Adam Smith International (ASI) has worked with officials world-wide to tackle challenges around poverty, generating growth and strengthening institutions. Current projects are based in countries that include Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria,Nigeria and Somalia.

ASI’s teams needed secure and reliable IT services available to them everywhere … including hostile locations where any interception of classified data could put people’s lives in danger.

ASI’s technical team wanted every employee to be able to access the right applications, communications and IT services securely, from virtually anywhere. With help from CAE, it’s now been possible.
