• Skyscape Cloud Services relaunches as UKCloud

        • Skyscape Cloud Services Limited, has renamed and relaunched as UKCloud Ltd, to reinforce the company’s focus on supporting the UK public sector in the digital transformation of services.

          Over the past year, UKCloud has experienced unprecedented growth, expanding its customer base, market share and channel partner programme. In terms of number of employees, the company has grown more than ten-fold in four years, with expectations to double its staff by the end of 2016. Committed to continually evolving its platform, UKCloud recently became the first cloud services provider to offer OpenStack compatible services exclusively for the UK public sector and is the first cloud provider focused on the UK public sector to offer a platform based on Oracle technology. It is also set to announce further support options in the coming months.  

          Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud said, “In a very short space of time, as Skyscape Cloud Services, we have experienced rapid growth and have established our company as the leading player in the market. We’re very proud to have helped save millions of pounds of public money by delivering more agile, lower cost IT solutions throughout high-profile Government departments, including the DVLA, Home Office and MOD. Our new name – UKCloud – reflects our unwavering commitment to serving the UK public sector and supporting the digital transformation of citizen-facing services.

          “Our sole focus on the UK public sector gives us unparalleled insight into the evolving needs of our customers and partners.  Over the past year, we have continued to develop and improve our pioneering assured cloud platform in a number of ways. Additionally, we’ve focused attention on customer service with new recruits specifically dedicated to ensuring customer satisfaction and a new online portal designed to encourage end-user feedback, ensuring this influences our product development roadmap going forward. For us, these developments and this re-brand provide the perfect launch pad for our business as we continue to grow and innovate enabling our customers and partners to deliver better outcomes for citizens and taxpayers.”

          There will be no changes to the company’s legal entity, services, security protocols, organisation structure, governance or shareholdings.
