The G-Cloud Programme
With the core benefits of cost reduction, improved services and faster delivery, the G-Cloud programme will deliver utility style Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services across the Public Sector. It is envisaged that the G-Cloud programme will become the default model of cloud computing, enabling government organisations to achieve cost savings without the service reductions that would otherwise be necessary, leading to a better citizen experience of government services and greater departmental efficiencies.
