Central
Government.

Expert partners in the
digital transformation of
the UK’s Public Services.

Central Government organisations are being challenged to deliver better public services for less cost, and to use technology to increase public sector productivity and efficiency. You’re transforming how you interact with citizens and businesses by delivering services online and to do this you need the right technologies and systems.

Cloud can help. Cloud computing can help you reduce lead times for application development and reduce deployment times. Cloud’s inherent elasticity can help you to respond to fluctuating demand and provide access to extensive computing resources that improve availability, reduce risk and provide greater security. It can also help you move towards a common infrastructure and shared services.

You may need to deliver a new application, designed specifically to be hosted in the cloud. Or you may need to shift legacy applications to the cloud. UKCloud offers a range of solutions to help you do both. Our OpenStack platform provides a truly open source platform that is familiar to developers and meets government requirements for open standards. Our Oracle platform enables you to host Oracle-based services with us and therefore realise the benefits of cloud hosting whilst complying with the stringent licencing and hardware requirements specified by Oracle’s software solutions.
