The BadgerNet Platform is now available for purchase on the government procurement portal for cloud services, G-Cloud. For those wanting to purchase any of the BadgerNet services, this effectively means that no tender process is necessary, thereby greatly speeding up any implementation.
According to G-Cloud, it is “…a UK Government initiative to encourage the adoption of Cloud Services across the whole of the Public Sector. Our aims are to simplify how the Public Sector buys and delivers services by creating a marketplace of pay-as-you-go commodity services that can be easily scaled up or down, based on the changing needs of a business and its users.
The Programme is not just about IT, it’s about changing perceptions and encouraging a Cloud first approach; it’s about providing the right tools to help the business unleash innovation from the front-line and from citizens; it’s about helping a business become more flexible, agile and responsive to changing needs. The technology and the means to use it are here, so we must embrace change, start experimenting, share our experiences and not be afraid to be one of the first to go Cloud.”
