Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB UK) 22 August 2016
Axios Systems, one of the leading providers of IT Service Management (ITSM) and IT Asset Management (ITAM), has been recognised by the UK Government in the latest G-Cloud procurement framework, G-Cloud 8. Through the Digital Marketplace (lot 3), Axios will offer its market-leading service management tool assyst as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and assyst ITAM Suite.
Allowing public-sector organisations to procure cloud services from Digital Marketplace-listed suppliers, G-Cloud expedites what is typically a lengthy tender process from governmental organisations.
The G-Cloud initiative was launched in June 2012 and has seen public-sector spending through the framework continue to grow to £904m1. Over half of the total sales by value from all reported G-Cloud sales to date have been handed to Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
77% of sales (£867m) by value were through Central Government while 23% were awarded to other public-sector organisations2. In mandating the Central Governments to make cloud computing a priority, the G-Cloud initiative underpins the year-on-year growth.
SaaS growth remains strong, with analysts currently predicting a 27% compound annual growth rate to at least 20193. Such growth is more than six times the rate of the overall IT sector. G-Cloud is central to the UK’s digital strategy. The framework ensures purchasing SaaS technology for the public sector is simple and efficient.
Several public-sector bodies have implemented Axios’ industry-leading ITSM solution assyst, including the Scottish Government, the Forestry Commission, NHS and police services. It also serves many local councils such as Fife Council and the City and County of Swansea. The latter transformed their IT operations by successfully amalgamating two service desks into one in just 106 days.
Axios has been able to deliver enhanced efficiencies and greater productivity amid ever-tightening IT budgets thanks to the implementation of assyst.
