G-Cloud: Much has been achieved, but the programme still needs work

The UK government is ahead of the curve in cloud, but work still needs doing

Thanks to G-Cloud, the once stagnant public sector IT marketplace that was dominated by a small number of large incumbent providers, is thriving. More and more SMEs are listing their assured cloud services on the framework, which is driving further competition and forcing down costs for public sector organisations, ultimately benefitting each and every UK tax payer.  But the programme still needs work.

Contrary to popular belief, G-Cloud awareness is soaring

A recently published survey suggests G-Cloud is continuing to gain traction

A broad survey of UK public servants published Tuesday suggests a majority are still unaware of the UK Government’s G-Cloud initiative despite a series of high-profile deployments and combined sales of close to £250m. But some cloud service vendors believe the survey results suggest GDS’s efforts to make the cloud procurement programme more visible are paying off.
