Description:
Government will use multi-tenanted services, shared and managed by several organisations. Shared resources, infrastructure, software and information will be provided to a range of end user devices, e.g. laptops, smart phones etc, as a utility – on a pay by use basis, via a network connection – in many cases the internet; this will be supported by new delivery and supply models. It will be dynamically scalable, agile, and easy to move in and out of the service. G-Cloud is not a single entity; it is an ongoing and iterative programme of work which will enable the use of a range of cloud services, and changes in the way we procure and operate ICT, throughout the public sector.
By adopting cloud computing, the government will be able to more easily exploit and share commodity ICT products and services. This enables the move from high-cost customised ICT applications and solutions to low cost, standard, interchangeable services where quality and cost is driven by the market. It means changing the culture of government to adopt and adapt to the solutions the market provides and not creating unnecessary bespoke approaches.
