Navisite, LLC joins Government’s new G-Cloud II Programme

Navisite, LLC, a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, has been awarded a framework agreement by the UK Government to join its G-Cloud II programme. Navisite, LLC is now certified to provide its NaviCloud ® platform for Infrastructure-as-a-Service to local UK authorities, government departments and wider public sector organisations through the Government’s CloudStore at http://gcloud.civilservice.gov.uk/cloudstore/ – an online database of suppliers offering specialist services, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).

The new G-Cloud II programme was launched on Friday 26th October. With over 500 suppliers tendering around 3000 services, the new network has a total procurement value of £100m and over 50% more suppliers than the original iteration which launched in October 2011. Navisite, LLC welcomes the Government’s efforts in opening up the cloud tendering process to a much wider and diverse range of suppliers in order to increase value and drive down costs. It also recognises the need to improve the efficiency and quality of public sector IT and is delighted to support the Government’s initiatives to change the way in which public sector organisations procure and adopt cloud services.

“We’re extremely pleased to join the Government’s G-Cloud framework. The accreditation is a huge testament to both the credibility and capability of our technology,” said Sean McAvan, Managing Director, Navisite, LLC “We believe the cloud can be of great value to public sector organisations if understood and managed properly. We therefore look forward to working with the sector to help increase the flexibility and efficiency of its IT systems and processes.”

“Security, compliance and data sovereignty are still real and genuine concerns for public sector organisations looking to migrate to the cloud and Navisite, LLC is committed to helping Government organisations address these issues. We believe our approach which assures control over geographic data location, full visibility of our platforms and transparency into our processes; will give organisations the reassurance to know that their infrastructure and data are optimised for performance and are fully secure and robust.”
