Xalient, a rapidly growing, global specialist in networking and cybersecurity, proudly announced today that it has been accepted and approved on the Government G-Cloud 13 Framework to deliver SaaS applications which are accessed over the internet and hosted in the cloud.
The G-Cloud-13 Framework provides cloud hosting and software services, together with associated support services, to UK central government departments and all other public sector bodies. IT solution and consulting providers must apply and be approved to be accepted onto this framework. On 9th November, G-Cloud 13 will replace G-Cloud 12 and will continue to provide cloud hosting and software services, together with associated support services to the UK central government departments and all other public sector bodies.
“We are delighted to be approved on the G-Cloud 13 Framework and we are looking forward to helping organisations on their digital transformation journey. As public sector organisations grapple with the volatile economic environment and strive to automate and digitise more of their infrastructure, demand for greater network bandwidth is rising, but so too is the cyber-threat environment. Our security-first approach to networking and intelligent suite of AI-powered network monitoring and secure network access tools means we can deliver both speed and consistency of deployment, as well as the security, visibility and functionality organisations need,” comments Sherry Vaswani, founder and CEO, Xalient.
The UK Government G-Cloud is an initiative targeted at simplifying procurement of IT services by UK public-sector bodies. The G-Cloud consists of a series of framework agreements with suppliers, from which public sector organisations can buy services without needing to run a full tender or competition procurement process. Additionally, it provides an online store which allows public sector bodies to search for services that are covered by the G-Cloud frameworks.
The G-Cloud 13 agreement introduces the following changes from G-Cloud 12:
- improved terms and conditions, with greater inclusion for the provision of day rate cloud support services
- inclusion of the latest procurement policies, including social value and prompt payment
- introduction of a fourth Lot to complement Lot 1, Lot 2 and Lot 3 for further competition for Cloud Support Services for larger, more complex requirements.
The benefits of the G-Cloud framework are many and include:
- access to multiple suppliers and cloud services, including a high number of SMEs
- quick and easy route to market
- access to the latest cloud technology and innovation including:
- cloud migration planning
- Set up and migration
- security services
- quality assurance and performance testing
- ongoing support
Xalient is a new breed of managed service provider, disrupting the traditional approach to outsourcing with an innovative approach and intelligent management services that deliver significant cost reduction and a strong return on investment. The business has enjoyed considerable success in 2022 and this acceptance onto the G-Cloud 13 scheme comes hot on the heels of other great accolades such as being recognised and ranked as one of the UK’s fastest growing private businesses in the inaugural FEBE Growth 100 2022 and also being ranked in 40th place in the prestigious Sunday Times Hundred list for 2022, which recognises Britain’s fastest-growing private companies.
