Hornbill has announced that its cloud-based Hornbill collaboration platform and Service Manager application are available in the latest iteration of the UK government’s cloud procurement framework, G-Cloud 6, through the Digital Marketplace.
The Hornbill collaboration platform enables public sector IT teams to communicate and share information in ways that are as familiar and easy as the popular consumer applications people use at home, yet as secure as any application within the walls of the organisation.
Gerry Sweeney, founder and CEO of Hornbill said: “The growth of powerful, accessible and intuitive consumer applications has changed our perception about the technology we use at work. IT organisations that can provide the same ease of use and ability to communicate and share information in the workplace will quickly demonstrate value from best practice and tangible business benefits in terms of employee engagement and productivity. The Hornbill platform and Service Manager application blends effective principles from traditional ITSM best practice with innovative technologies to provide public sector organisations with a fresh and more agile approach to delivering IT Services to the organisation.”
G-Cloud 6 was launched on the 2nd February 2015, and is the latest iteration of the Government’s procurement framework that aims to simplify the way in which the UK public sector procures cloud services.
