Glasgow, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 20, 2012 -- Leading integrator SCC has announced the success of its application for a framework agreement for the provision of G-Cloud services.
Following a comprehensive public tender process the Government Procurement Service has granted SCC's application to offer G-Cloud services in four categories, including Infrastructure (IaaS) Services, Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Specialist Cloud Services.
Europe's largest independent technology solutions provider believes that the success of its tender can be ascribed to a combination of its long-term investment in cloud technology and the strategic advantage of operating one of the UK's most advanced data centres.
"We're delighted to have been awarded a framework agreement covering all four of the categories that we applied for. SCC has been at the forefront of cloud computing for some time and we've established a track record of investing ahead of the curve, so this announcement serves as a vindication of that strategy," said Tracy Westall, SCC's UK Public Sector Director.
"G-Cloud is a concerted effort to enable the kind of technology initiatives that will help the government deliver services faster, better and cheaper, and we're proud to be playing a role in that mission."
SCC Chief Technology Officer Rhys Sharp added: "The strategic value of operating from a secure, environmentally friendly facility within the UK is not to be underestimated. We look forward to working with a range of companies from multinational corporations to SMEs to help public sector organisations select and implement the services they need to help make Britain better."
SCC is Europe's largest independent technology solutions provider around the infrastructure, and is part of Specialist Computer Holdings (SCH) plc. The Group has regional operations in seven different countries, employs over 7,000 professional staff and has delivered sustained, profitable growth for some 35 years, with annual turnover exceeding £2.5 billion.
