Atos launches innovative Government as a Platform components via G-Cloud VI

ATOS journey to the cloud

Atos, the digital services provider, has launched a series of ‘Government as a Platform’ components via the G-Cloud VI framework.

These platform products provide scalability for digital systems and can be combined to enhance user experience, digital workplace and digital business processes. Atos now has a total of 111 products on the G-Cloud VI framework, many of which can be used as the foundation for ‘Government as a Platform’.

The new components include Secure Messaging Service, which allows unrelated government and non-government IT systems to securely exchange messages and data, and the Cloud Migration Service, a proven approach to migrating business systems to a cloud model with minimal disruption.

Others include Predictive Analytics as a Platform, which uses an organisation’s own data to provide real-time predictions and recommendations for improved business strategy, and Enterprise Private Cloud Secure+, a secure and totally flexible cloud hosting service that functions across multiple or individual IT applications or services.

Real-time unified communications service Lync as Service and integrated management and governance framework SIAM for Cloud round out the ‘Government as a Platform’ components.

Ursula Morgenstern, CEO of Atos UK&I and global executive vice president of Canopy, the Atos cloud, and Enterprise Software, said: “We’re at an incredibly exciting point for the technology industry in the UK. The changes made by the UK Government in digitisation and procurement of digital services are world-leading.

“We have re-shaped our business to meet Governments’ needs and it has driven more innovation and partnership than ever before.”

Atos has used the G-Cloud framework to extend its partnerships within the SME Harbour Programme, through which small and medium-sized companies have the opportunity to pitch ideas to Government clients, thereby bringing new and extended offerings to the public sector.

Morgenstern continued: “Our SME Harbour programme has given us the opportunity to partner with some incredible and innovative organisations to offer solutions to our Government clients that we haven’t been able to give them before.”
