Cloud computing has brought about a step change in the economics and sustainability of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

The Government is committed to the adoption of cloud computing and the G-Cloud is an iterative programme of work to achieve this – delivering fundamental changes in the way that the public sector procures and operates ICT.

The primary aim of G-Cloud strategy is to:

  1. Achieve large, cross government economies of scale.
  2. Deliver ICT systems that are flexible and responsive to demand in order to support government policies and strategies.
  3. Take advantage of new technologies in order to deliver faster business benefits and reduce cost.
  4. Meet environmental and sustainability targets.
  5. Allow government to procure in a way that encourages a dynamic and responsive supplier marketplace and supports emerging suppliers.

Solutions awarded a place on the G-Cloud framework can be procured directly by public sector organisations without the need for an OJEU procurement process or mini-competition. This not only saves money but also dramatically shortens the time to implementation. Symology recognised the importance and benefits of the G-Cloud from the outset and has been awarded placement on each iteration of the framework since its inception.

Under G-Cloud 13, Symology offer five Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions:

  1. Symology’s Enterprise Solution
  2. Symology’s Street Works Solution
  3. Symology for Highways
  4. Symology for Street Lighting Management
  5. Symology for Bridges and Structures Management

Lee Bennett, Business Development Consultant at Symology commented “The G-Cloud framework continues to be a vitally accessible procurement route for our customers, providing arguable the cheapest and least invasive route to market. Procurement timescales can be a matter of days rather than months and the short term contracts provide customers with both flexibility and committed performance driven service, whilst Symology’s reassuring stability and consistent efficiencies mitigate the risks that often come with changing suppliers.”
