The Cabinet Office has announced the latest iteration of G-Cloud is now live and available to support public sector bodies in sourcing cloud solutions.

With over 4,000 suppliers, W3 Partnership and Smarter Integration are delighted to have been awarded a place on the G-Cloud framework. The agreement enables Central Government, NHS Trusts and other public sector bodies to purchase cloud-based services from a single website.

W3 Partnership and Smarter Integration were awarded the position based on their innovative cloud-based integration solutions. Providing first-class connectivity services whilst providing large cost savings and reducing the risks associated with implementing an integration layer needed to make public sector bodies more efficient.

Graham Woods, Director at Smarter Integration, commented on the G-Cloud success, “We are pleased our application has been successful again in securing a place on G-Cloud 11. Our Integration Connectivity as a Service (ICaaS) offering is an ideal solution to support the public sector in implementing connectivity to drive value and we are thrilled to have already supported ACAS, as a G-Cloud 10 suppler, in meeting their connectivity objectives” .

Michael Bradshaw, Lead Architect at ACAS, explains “We are a small public sector team, lacking significant resources, and it’s our strategy to go cloud first – so we have that scalability, resilience and reliability. ICaaS and Smarter Integration very much fits into the model we wanted to adopt.

We were able to deploy without having that big lump sum to pay up front – saving at least 70% in comparison with other potential suppliers, possibly more. This is money we’ve been able to reallocate to the digital front-end and other options for device refreshment. I don’t ever like to use the word ‘no-brainer’ but if I was to ever use it then, from a cost perspective, it would be appropriate.”

G-Cloud is quick and easy to use, however if you are unfamiliar or want to learn more about how Smarter Integration can support your cloud-first connectivity requirements, get in touch now.
