The Government’s ICT strategy will deliver better public services for less cost. Through reuse and sharing of our ICT assets, we will improve productivity and efficiency, reduce waste and the likelihood of project failure.
In October 2009, following approval from the CIO Council, a team led by the Cabinet Office set out to define how the public sector could utilise the Cloud Computing approach to ICT delivery and explore what benefits and challenges this approach would create. This became known as Phase 2 of the G-Cloud Programme.
The Government is currently developing proposals for G-Cloud. This cloud computing infrastructure will enable public bodies to select and host ICT services from a secure, resilient and cost-effective shared environment.
