For those not familiar with G-Cloud, the G-Cloud Framework is an initiative by UK Government which makes it easier for cloud technology businesses to work with and supply government. It aims to make the cloud procuring process more transparent and efficient, and allows public sector organisations to procure cloud solutions in three areas: cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support.
We were selected to offer our cloud hosting services via the framework, which brings us a step closer to the BlockChain-connected public services our SICCAR solution showcases. Now, Public Sector organisations can easily utilise our BlockChain platform without the need, or delay, of going through a whole tender process.
Since UK Government's 'Cloud First' pledge, the marketplace has seen year-on-year growth in sales; and the addition of a BlockChain company indicates government's commitment to being connected.
So we're looking forward to seeing ourselves appear on the Gov.uk Digital Marketplace shortly - a great breakthrough for us and for BlockChain technology in the UK!
