G Cloud 8 migration supplier

We are pleased to announce that Stonegate IT has been selected as an official G Cloud 8 migration supplier under the growing list of G Cloud services.

G Cloud is a UK Government initiative with the aim of simplifying cloud service procurement by public-sector bodies. The “Digital Marketplace” (previously “CloudStore”) allows public sector bodies to search for services that are covered by the G Cloud frameworks and get in touch directly.

Procurement for cloud services could be on the rise

An Eduserv survey published last month indicated that almost half of the top 100 biggest councils by revenue have yet to put a cloud strategy in place. This discovery indicates that there is a substantial opportunity for growth to the volume of councils seeking reputable cloud services.

For Stonegate IT, retaining its position as a G Cloud migration supplier means we are fortunate in getting our cloud migration services in front of this growing list of public-sector organisations, opening up the variety of industries we work with.

Our public sector experience to date

As an independent team of migration specialists who largely go to work through hosting partner referrals, we have worked with a wide variety of industries.

Whilst we joined the digital marketplace at G Cloud 7, we have previously knocked up quite a CV for the migration work we have done for the public sector. Last year we migrated 300 Apps to SoftLayer over a 12-month period for London Southbank University. We have since worked with two other major London universities on infrastructure migration projects.

“Stonegate have been extremely professional in delivering the LSBU solution. I have valued the approach taken by Stonegate when resolving challenges that arise in project delivery.  Stonegate have enabled IBM to provide a level of flexibility which IBM would not have been able to do on their own.”

Francois Contreiras, Programme Director, London South Bank University.
