  • The Government is also committed to growing the economy for a diverse range of businesses, voluntary bodies and other social providers. It will promote a public service economy based on open ICT markets with increased participation of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and mutuals driving growth and creating jobs.The Government is already reducing the barriers that prevent SME participation in its ICT, for example through accelerated and less burdensome procurement regimes. It will create a competitive and open ICT market where SMEs will be given a fair chance to compete for opportunities. To do this, where possible, the Government will move away from large and expensive ICT contracts, with a presumption that no contract will be greater than £100 million.It will also open its data and application interfaces in ways which encourage businesses and social providers to serve new market opportunities.

    36. 36. G-Cloud, isn’t one thing: It has five “worlds”: Hosting, Testing, Sharing, Web, SME. Departments want and need different things so G-Cloud needs to offer them flexibility to make the offer compelling…<br />“Testing<br /> world”<br />I don’t want to buy computers to test new systems, can I rent them from you?<br />DirectGov<br />“Hosting world”<br />“Shared world”<br />My computer systems are fine, I just want to close my data centres and use yours.<br />ERP – HR/ Finance<br />Gateway & ID<br />Shared App<br />BusinessLink<br />Apps<br />Give me economies of scale, security and growth, reduce my capex need<br />What can be shared, should be shared.

No Technology stack lock-in</li></ul>Government Applications Store<br />“eBay”<br />Shared<br />Hosting<br />Testing<br />Web<br />SME<br />App<br />App<br />App<br />Data Storage<br />App<br />Processing Capacity<br />App<br />App<br />Security, Resilience, Support<br />Any “application” from any supplier can be deployed on a common infrastructure using any back end technology stack (the lines)<br />Software design, development , testing and integration tools/ components<br />A choice of “technology stack” vendors<br />The infrastructure provider handles security and scalability. Think of it as the electricity grid. They don't decide what you do with it<br />It is pay for use, there is no lock-in to long term software licence contacts<br />It potentially provides a development and delivery vehicle for SME’s to all their products globally, generating UK tax income and innovation<br />
