G-Cloud (Digital Marketplace)
Government Digital Marketplace accelerates adoption of proven and predictable cloud computing services
Computacenter’s portfolio of Cloud services is now available to government organisations via the Digital Marketplace online at https://www.digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk/.
The Digital Marketplace has been created by the Cabinet Office to provide public sector organisations with faster and more cost-effective access to cloud-based services from a variety of suppliers.
The G-Cloud framework allows you to choose and purchase cloud services covering infrastructure, platform, software and specialist cloud services. The framework is for commodity based, pay-as-you go cloud services across four lots.
Each supplier included in the Digital Marketplace has been pre-approved, and eventually every service will be accredited to demonstrate that it meets government standards. Procuring services via the catalogue eliminates the need to issue tenders via the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union).
Computacenter services are available on two lots.
- Lot 3 - Software as a Service (SaaS): Software as a Service (SaaS) is an application or service that can be run over the internet or in the cloud. Examples of SaaS include web-based email services, customer relationship management (CRM) software and analytics tools.
- Lot 4 - Specialist Cloud Services (SCS): Specialist Cloud Services (SCS) support your transition to SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Examples of SCS include cloud strategy, data transfer between providers or day-to-day support of cloud-based services.
More than 22,000 ICT services from over 2,300 suppliers are available via the Digital Marketplace. Originally launched in February 2012, the G Cloud framework is now on its 8th version. Each iteration is designed to enhance functionality to further simplify IT service procurement.
