CDSM never stop learning

Working on Major Projects Has Given CDSM a Real Edge

We’ve worked with the Welsh Government, Gleeds, Local Authorities, and even won an award with Honda Europe. So, after demonstrating our extensive experience with cloud solutions, CDSM became a listed supplier on the UK Government’s G-Cloud 6 Framework, starting 2015 with a bang!

PrintBut what is G-Cloud? A solution born from the UK Government’s desire to create a leaner and more efficient public sector IT spend.  More than £500m of business is now being done through G-Cloud, and it’s exciting to hear that 59% of this volume is with SMEs. The IT procurement landscape is changing, and we are not the only ones to notice.

“The G-Cloud programme has made significant progress to date in creating a fairer marketplace for all, boosting opportunities for innovative SMEs and challenging the dominance of inflexible incumbents, while supporting the UK public sector with agile and cost-effective IT solutions.”
– Simon Hansford, CEO of Skyscape

Enter CDSM:  breaking up the monopolies and creating more agile and cost effective services to the public sector.

“For decades the large System Integrators have locked the public sector into expensive and long running contracts that offered little ROI for taxpayers. With the advent of cloud computing, the UK Government has realised that SMEs can offer a more dynamic and cost effective service than the old guard. G-Cloud and the Government Digital Strategy means public sector IT is no longer a closed shop. This is great news for the tax payer.”
– Nik Goile, CDSM’s Head of Delivery
