InTechnology secures place on G-Cloud III
09 July 2013
One of the UK’s top providers of Cloud and IT services, InTechnology, has secured a place on the Government’s latest G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud III, opening the firm up to business opportunities with UK public sector organisations.
Through this framework, InTechnology will supply a range of cloud infrastructure, platform and software services through the Government-approved supplier store, 'the Cloudstore'.
The Government is committed to the adoption of cloud computing across the public sector and delivering computer resources. The G-cloud strategy ultimately plans to achieve the following:
- Large, cross government economies of scale
- Delivery of ICT systems that are flexible and responsive
- Faster business benefits and reduced costs through new technologies
- Meeting environmental and sustainability targets
- A dynamic and responsive supplier marketplace that supports emerging suppliers
Cloud and IT service provider, InTechnology, was granted its initial status back in February 2012 and continue to be a part of the framework.
Peter Nailer, Tender Manager at InTechnology, said: "We are pleased to have secured the place on such an important and emerging framework. In a competitive industry, the Cloudstore represents a decisive revolution in the delivery of our services to public sector organisations and can only help increase awareness of the cloud."
"The boost from public services represents a valuable opportunity in revenue-sharing and is a clear win-win scenario for both UK SMEs and the Government."
In June, G-Cloud changed stance from a stand-alone programme to being placed under the control of the Government Digital Service (GDS) - a new team within Cabinet Office tasked with transforming Government digital services and making Britain a 'digital by default' nation.
Headed up by Tony Singleton, chief operating officer at GDS, the initiative advertises over 7000 services on the CloudStore across 700 suppliers, over 80 per cent of which are SMEs.
