Salesforce.com joins G-Cloud
Salesforce.com last week announced that they have joined the G-Cloud framework here in the UK. Public sector organisations in the UK can now procure salesforce.com’s trusted social and mobile cloud computing technologies through the G-Cloud CloudStore (http://gcloud.civilservice.gov.uk/)
As a London based salesforce consultancy, we welcome this announcement and are excited about the possibilities for the future. For many years private organisations have been using salesforce to dramatically transform their operations becoming more efficient whilst also increasing output (in most cases turnover), imagine if we could do the same in the public sector?
Across the globe, public sector organisations innovate and transform for the social era with salesforce.com, including the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in the U.K., Japan Post in Japan and NASA in the U.S.
LONDON – Oct. 26, 2012 – Salesforce.com [NYSE: CRM], the enterprise cloud computing (http://www.salesforce.com/cloudcomputing/) company, today announced it has joined the U.K. government’s G-Cloud framework. With this announcement, 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.
Innovate and Eliminate Wasteful Spending with Cloud Computing
The G-Cloud 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 to improve services and work more effectively for the public. The framework and catalogued list of suppliers simplifies the procurement process and provides easy access to approved cloud technologies. Public sector organisations in the U.K. are looking to revolutionise a broad range of services both in local and central government as well as public services such as the National Health Service with cloud computing.
