"We look forward to helping organisations overcome their business challenges and contributing to the success of the G-Cloud Framework” Simon Cuciurean.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 29 May 2013
Critigen today announced a new relationship with HM Government to provide a broad range of services and solutions via the G-Cloud iii Framework. Critigen’s offerings will be available to the UK’s 30,000 public sector organisations through the CloudStore. Through this framework Critigen can provide its Oracle Primavera EPPM Cloud solution– a full SaaS offering for all Primavera applications.
Critigen can also supply an extensive choice of niche consulting services under Lot 4 – SCS (Specialist Cloud Services). These cover the full life cycle for spatial, IT Management, Oracle Primavera and Dashboarding solutions.
Simon Cuciurean, Critigen’s Managing Director for Europe and the Middle East, commented, “Our aim is to build on our strong track record and partner with Government organisations to maximise their return on investment for all technology spend. Our G-Cloud services are aligned to ensure that our clients have access to the best, most accurate and richest data available, wherever that information is needed. “We look forward to helping organisations overcome their business challenges and contributing to the success of the G-Cloud Framework.”
Alongside the “Cloud First” mandate from the central government, G-Cloud and the services on the CloudStore provide the first place for public sector organisations to look for IT services. The aim is to make selection and implementation much more streamlined, leading to greater economies of scale and the ability to rapidly respond to change and innovation.“Yes, we’ve come a long way, and yes, I believe G-Cloud is a real game-changer, but we’re not there yet, and there is still more to be done if we’re to see a lasting transition in our way of thinking about how we choose and use IT,” said Denise McDonagh (Home Office). “But by working on this together, we can not only make G-Cloud a lasting success, we can radically change the market for public sector IT, making it simpler, more agile and cheaper, and helping us deliver a better deal for the taxpayer.”
