Sister company Content Guru has been listed as a G-Cloud 8 (G8) Software-as-a-Service provider for its suite of storm® communications, payment and management services. G8 services became available on the Digital Marketplace on 1st August, providing an update to the previous iteration, G-Cloud 7, which went live in December 2015.
G-Cloud is a Crown Commercial Service (CCS) initiative to encourage public sector adoption of cloud services by connecting government organisations with providers of all sizes in a secure and open environment. The CCS acts on behalf of the Crown in order to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity across both local and central government.
In order to qualify for inclusion in G8, organisations need to prove that they are a suitable and secure potential partner for government technology projects. They must also be prepared to list the capabilities of their products, along with indicative pricing. As a result, G8 provides public sector bodies with an open, secure and transparent digital marketplace in which to search for cloud solutions.
