UK Government’s Crown Commercial Service aims to cut the complexity of cloud adoption

The UK Government’s IT procurement arm, Crown Commercial Service, has signed an agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to simplify its IT consumption.

The agreement gives public sector organisations access to HPE GreenLake cloud services. This mean’s they’re able to consume on-premises IT on a pay-per-use basis, like public cloud.

Signed as part of the One Government Cloud Strategy, aims to simplify IT consumption across the UK public sector. The One Government Cloud Strategy, launched in 2020, acknowledges that public sector cloud strategies include public, hybrid and multi-cloud solutions.

Simon Tse, Chief Executive of CCS, believes the move enables the public sector to “innovate more readily and improve services for the citizens they serve”.

We spoke to Marc Waters and Sue Preston from Hewlett Packard Enterprise in the video above. For more information on the announcement, read the press release.
