What is the G-Cloud 11 Framework?

G-Cloud is the UK government’s initiative to help public sector organisations easily adopt cloud-based and digital services. A new version of the framework is usually released every six to nine months with G-Cloud 11 being the latest iteration.

The framework is underpinned by the government’s ‘Cloud First’ policy and approach to IT, encouraging the public sector to make the most of cloud solutions rather than onsite alternatives. Organisations are able to search and choose from various suppliers offering cloud-based and digital technology services in the UK via the Digital Marketplace website with the peace of mind they are purchasing from an approved G-Cloud supplier.

The Digital Marketplace

The Digital Marketplace makes G-Cloud suppliers more easily accessible through a single website.

Services within the G-Cloud 11 framework are split into three categories:  Cloud Software, Cloud Hosting and Cloud Support. The Digital Marketplace website streamlines the process of selling and purchasing cloud services, with each solution listing available with a complete specification breakdown.

In order to be listed, suppliers must undergo a rigorous application process to ensure they meet G-Cloud 11’s focus and requirements on cybersecurity, data security and security accreditations, along with meeting the necessary UK business legislation.
