Public Sector Moves Closer to the Cloud as Huddle Reveals Record Number of Government Deals

The public sector's shift towards cloud computing is gathering pace as Huddle, a leader in cloud-based government collaborationand content management, today announced that it is on track to have its biggest year for government contracts to date. The company has doubled the number of deals secured with public sector organisations in the first eight months of this financial year (1 May 2012 - 30 April 2013) compared to the total number of contracts closed in 2011/2012.

With the third iteration of the G-Cloud Framework launching its procurement phase last week, Huddle has also proved the most successful supplier on the G-Cloud Framework in terms of engagement numbers. The latest figures show that 14 per cent of the 95 G-Cloud deals since April have been with Huddle, including agreements with the Boundary Commission for England, Forestry Commission, Ordnance Survey and Crown Prosecution Service. The suppliers ranking in joint second place for engagements have secured only seven per cent of contracts, while the majority of vendors have had just one deal. Huddle is the third most successful supplier on the framework when measured by value.

Enabling information to be securely shared across departments and externally with stakeholders, contractors and partners, Huddle has been adopted to drive efficiencies and improve productivity by 80 per cent of central UK government departments. The cloud collaboration and content management platform has also been deployed by numerous local council and NHS organisations. New customers include NHS South Cheshire CCG, Essex County Fire and Rescue Services, Surrey County Council, Dorset County Council and NHS 24.

"UK public sector is clearly placing cloud technology at the heart of its efforts to drive productivity, increase efficiencies and reduce IT costs," said Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. "As the figures show, Huddle is a true trailblazer in government cloud computing, enabling the public sector to move away from costly legacy systems that simply don't meet the needs of today's workforce. More needs to be done though to ensure that all government organisations benefit from the higher flexibility, better service and value for money the cloud has to offer. The UK Government needs to lead from the top down, take a leaf out of the US Government's book and implement a 'Cloud First' strategy to ensure we don't get left behind when it comes to widespread adoption."
