Logicalis UK secures inclusion on new G-Cloud 11 framework

Logicalis UK has secured presence on the Cloud Support lot for four different offerings - Cloud Governance, Performance and Security Review, Cloud Migration Readiness Assessment, Digital Network Readiness Assessment and IoT Cloud, Connectivity and Security Assessment. All four are now included on G-Cloud 11 for 12 months, although the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) reserves the right to extend it by a further year if needed.

Alex Louth, Managing Director at Logicalis UK said: “Our successful application to join the G-Cloud framework is a clear endorsement of our approach to helping our customers to deliver on their cloud, networking, security and IoT strategies. We’re pleased to be playing a major role in supporting the UK Government’s drive to transform public sector IT and delivery of modern, efficient and effective services.”

The featured solutions allow public sector organisations to make strategic decisions around their cloud strategy and adoption:

  • Cloud Governance, Performance and Security Review - a best practice assessment of existing Cloud workload performance, current governance and controls policy, and the robustness of security posture and tools.
  • Cloud Migration Readiness Assessment - enables organisations to determine the business case for migration to Cloud-based platforms, providing a clear understanding of timelines, potential risks and “readiness” of systems, services and processes.
  • Digital Network Readiness Assessment - a consultative exercise which demonstrates where and how a new digital network infrastructure can benefit an organisation, helping to shape future SDN and Cloud strategy.
  • IoT Cloud, Connectivity and Security Assessment - enables public sector organisations to assess the readiness of their current Cloud development architecture and connectivity and security infrastructure for IoT proof of concepts or wide-scale adoption.

G-Cloud 11 is the latest version of the Government’s procurement framework, which allows organisations in the public sector to find the right supplier for their cloud-based IT services without the lengthy traditional tender process. Since G-Cloud’s inception in March 2012, a total of £4.57bn has been generated by sales through the framework.
