• UKCloud unveils Red Hat powered cloud native platform for public sector

        • UKCloud, the multi-cloud experts, has announced the latest iteration of its Platform-as-a-Service offering, enabling UK Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop and deliver compelling Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to the UK Public Sector. In turn, public sector organisations can maximise their efforts on delivering outcomes for the citizen, rather than spending resources on developing and maintaining applications. 

          As UK Public Sector organisations seek the adoption of digital technologies to adapt to these unprecedented times, they face a choice between the cost and risk of building new software applications or the convenience and flexibility of buying into specialist SaaS solutions to power a new generation of digital-enabled public services. 

          In response to public sector’s lack of skills and resources in building and managing cloud-native applications, UKCloud is focused on providing a platform for specialist SaaS alternatives that use innovative digital technologies such as AI and IoT to deliver better outcomes to users of public services. UKCloud is committed to supporting UK ISVs to develop modern user-centric applications that meet the expectations of citizens and those working in front line services. 

          Stephen Dixon, Product Manager at UKCloud said, “now more than ever organisations need flexible IT to innovate fast in an ever-changing market. As a cloud service provider, we have a crucial role to play in the development and delivery of specialist software applications. Our software developers innovate each day using standardised development and tooling driven by UKCloud for Managed OpenShift. Our developers have the freedom to write and publish code all without having to be a burden on IT operations, as a result, we can continue to iterate our portal systems, helping to improve the experience for our customers." 

          In order to drive a technology-led recovery, the support of UK ISVs will be critical for not only short-term recovery but for longer-term digital prosperity and growth. Utilising the innovative applications developed by the British technology industry, the UK Public Sector can benefit from the ecosystem of critical services they deliver. UKCloud continues to support and nurture these ISVs by providing the foundations to build and host cloud-native applications, that benefit from UK sovereignty, expert support, and value for money. Recognised by Crown Commercial Service as a strategic provider of multi-cloud services, UKCloud’s latest iteration of its UKCloud for Managed OpenShift benefits from new flexible pricing that allows ISVs to consume compute resources as and when they need, with no commitments or contracts. In addition, UK ISVs can benefit from UKCloud’s Level 1 Social Value Quality Mark award, meaning they can be confident that their applications reside on a platform dedicated to supporting the UK economy and its citizens.
