The UK public sector is increasingly adopting cloud technologies

The UK public sector is increasingly turning to cloud technology. Huddle has claimed that this financial year is to be the biggest in the firm’s history for UK public sector contacts, and in the first seven months of the financial year it doubled its revenues from the sector.

Organisations which have awarded contracts to Huddle include Surrey County Council, Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Huddle cloud services are used to securely store, share, and work on content with teams inside and across the firewall.

“Public sector organisations are really starting to embrace cloud technologies,” explains Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. “Whether they’re central or local government, education or NHS organisations, everyone is waking up to the benefits of intuitive, scalable and flexible services that support secure cross-firewall working, mobile workforce initiatives and paperless office targets. While the government is making headway in terms of its cloud ambitions and our latest figures show increasing demand for cloud services, there’s still a mountain to climb. A lot more pressure needs to come from the top-down as the £63.4 million that has been spent through the G-Cloud is a tiny proportion of the government’s overall IT spend. Public sector organisations considering a move to the cloud should also be aware that a number of the suppliers on the G-Cloud don’t have EU data centres or pan government accreditation at IL2, so are unlikely to meet their security requirements.”
