GlobalData insights: G-Cloud trends 1

Published 28 February 2017

GlobalData Public Sector research finds central government has become increasingly influential to driving G-Cloud sales compared to the wider public sector

The government's flagship framework, G-Cloud, was established in 2012 to encourage public sector organisations to increase their use of public cloud services, whilst speeding up lengthy procurement cycles and increasing opportunities for SME suppliers.

Any organisation from the public, private or voluntary sector may use G-Cloud. Under the 'Cloud First' policy, central government organisations are mandated to consider using public cloud services - procured via G-Cloud - before any other option.

As our analysis shows, G-Cloud buying is still dominated by central government buyers - in fact, the proportion of sales revenue contributed by other sectors has actually declined since 2012.
