The article states that this move will make it so “U.K. public sector organisations can now procure salesforce.com’s trusted cloud computing applications and platform via the G-Cloud CloudStore to innovate and transform for the social era.”
“Record government deficits, failed legacy IT programs, and a lack of public sector innovation have created a tipping point for cloud computing,” said salesforce.com executive vice president for emerging markets Vivek Kundra. “The G-Cloud represents the innovative path and is evidence of the unstoppable momentum of cloud computing in governments around the world.”
According to the article, the new framework “underpins a Cloud-First approach by the U.K. government that fundamentally changes the way U.K. public sector organisations procure and operate information technology” for improvement.
Denise McDonagh, director of G-Cloud Programme, and Home Office director of IT strategy and delivery, spoke more about the new framework, saying, “The G-Cloud programme presents a huge opportunity for public sector organisations to improve efficiencies through cloud services and provides the potential for further innovation. As a result we are pleased to expand the G-Cloud framework with salesforce.com. We are working hard to continually advance the framework to ensure that it develops in-line with the needs of the public sector and enables us to make best use of new and emerging technologies.”
