Service Express Awarded Supplier Position on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) G-Cloud 13 Framework
BEDFORD, UK., [17 October 2022] – Service Express has secured a position on CCS’s G-Cloud 13 framework, offering a range of cloud services and support to all UK public bodies and public sector organisations.
Opening up to this part of the market is a natural progression for us. Through our extensive controls and many industry-leading certifications, our solutions are a perfect fit for organisations within the public sector. We’re highly acclaimed for our aptitude and services around security and compliance, which is of great appeal to government agencies.
G-Cloud was created by the UK Government as a way for public sector organisations to achieve cost savings through the adoption of cloud technology. The G-Cloud 13 framework is expected to go live on Wednesday, 9th November 2022.
An unrivalled cloud offering for the public sector. “It made sense to open up to another part of the market that, traditionally, we would have been excluded from,” remarked Service Express’ Customer Sales Director, Chris Smith. “That’s not to say we don’t do business with government organisations, but now they’re compelled to go through these framework agreements. G-Cloud 13 opens a new marketplace for Service Express, the other part of it is there is a level of credibility that comes with the process and acceptance. It is like going through one big RFP.”
One major speciality that Service Express is renowned for, is the capability to rapidly and smoothly migrate SAP databases to the cloud, with an upgrade to S/4HANA.
“A lot of organisations – like government agencies – are using SAP. They’ll be facing the challenges that all SAP users will face coming into 2025, which means they’ll have to use SAP HANA,” explains Smith. “That’s something we can help them with, Specialty Cloud for IBM Power is designed to tackle those challenges.”
“Nobody provides IBM Power Systems on the cloud, alongside x86, with such a wide degree of flexibility. Combine that with SAP HANA and we’ve got a G-Cloud 13 offering that is simply unparalleled.”
