Anypoint Platform will be accessible to central and local government, education and health services, and devolved administrations
MuleSoft has announced the availability of Anypoint Platform on the UK government’s latest G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud 9, to help support digital transformation in the public sector.
Public sector organisations are driving digital transformation to achieve their strategic initiatives, such as enriching consumer experiences, increasing operational efficiencies and delivering capabilities through digital channels.
The G-Cloud 9 framework provides UK public sector organisations with a way to buy cloud-based services as commodities to accelerate cloud adoption.
Provided by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), G-Cloud 9 eliminates the need for organisations to individually research and enter into procurement contracts with technology vendors. As a result, Anypoint Platform will be accessible to central and local government, education and health services, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.
According to MuleSoft’s Connected Consumer Report 2017 more than half of respondents cited public services as the most disconnected industry.
“Public sector IT teams are under incredible pressure, as cloud, SaaS, mobile and IoT ramp up the number of endpoints that organisations need to connect to both on-premises and in the cloud,” said David Wyatt, vice president of EMEA, MuleSoft.
“In order to accelerate movement to the cloud while retaining value from legacy investments, many public sector organisations are turning to Anypoint Platform to be more agile by building application networks. Application networks help organisations turn IT assets into services, which can be quickly discovered and easily reused by consumers on the network to develop more transformative services that drive stronger citizen engagement.”
“We’re leading a step-change in procurement to ensure that user-centred, design-led, data-driven and open approaches are commonplace in contracting by 2020,” said Warren Smith, digital marketplace director, Government Digital Service, in a recent statement.
“This reduces barriers for suppliers to do business with the public sector market, giving access to a greater number of new and innovative suppliers. Many of them have never had the opportunity to work with government before."
