G-Cloud 8 goes live on the Digital Marketplace

Outside of the more established suppliers on the framework, G-Cloud 8 has a number of first time engagements with suppliers, including a blockchain platform-as-a-service company called Credits.
Building on the company’s work with authorities in the Isle of Man, the company’s CEO, Nick Williamson, said that working to understand the needs of the UK public sector for cloud services had proved a challenging, yet rewarding process as part of the process of getting on G-Cloud 8.
Having earlier this year entered into a partnership with UKCloud, formerly known as supplier Skyscape, Williamson said the company hoped to be able to offer secure and interoperable distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), such as those used to support digital currencies such as Bitcoin.
