Sogeti UK Retains G-Cloud Supplier Status and Adds New Services to the G5
LONDON, June 25, 2014
LONDON, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Testing and Assurance specialist awarded a place as a supplier on the new
G-Cloud 5 Framework, which enables rapid sourcing and deployment of secure,
low cost services to the UK public sector
Sogeti UK , a leading provider of professional technology services,
specialising in software testing, application and infrastructure management
and high-tech engineering, is pleased to announce that following the fifth
round of procurement applications Sogeti's specialist testing services will be
available on the latest G5 procurement framework. This allows the UK
Government continued access to procure a broad range of services provided by
Sogeti, as part of the on-going G-Cloud initiative.
In addition to the core services that were available on the G-Cloud 4
framework, Sogeti has added Testing Platform as a Service (TPaaS) Advisory and
Implementation Services , SOA Testing Services and Mobile Testing Services as
well as broadening both its Agile Business Services and Test Training Services
to include its full agile portfolio on this latest framework.
The G-Cloud initiative allows the public sector to buy cloud-based digital
services off the shelf, avoiding lock-in to expensive contracts with single
suppliers, and encouraging cost-effective, innovative solutions. However,
according to BBC News , councils are still not taking full advantage of the
services available on the G-Cloud. The Government Digital Strategy confirms
the UK Government's use of digital public services still lags far behind that
of the private sector (whilst 74% of people used the internet to purchase or
renew car insurance in 2013, only 51% renewed car tax online). The same report
highlights that by going digital by default, which was mandated in April 2014,
the government could save between £1.7 and £1.8 billion each year through
associated cost efficiencies and reductions achieved via citizen self-service.
Sogeti's range of G5 solutions aim to meet the increasingly digital needs of
government clients by offering high quality development and testing of new
web, cloud and mobile based applications that either successfully meet
citizens' requirements, or that help Public Sector employees to work more
effectively and efficiently.
Brian Shea, CEO of Sogeti UK, confirms: "We're absolutely thrilled to have
been awarded supplier status for G5, having already seen strong interest in
our Quality Assurance Services through the previous G-Cloud frameworks. We are
delighted that our high quality development and testing services put us in a
fantastic position to support public sector clients' key digital initiatives.
New customers can find us easily on the CloudStore and we welcome their
interest in our Mobile and SOA Testing Services as well as our complete range
of Cloud and Agile Services that have been added to this latest release."
