CGI to Continue UK Cloud Hosting, Design Work; Paul Sussex Comments

CgiLogoCGI Group has won a contract to provide the U.K. government cloud computing services in hosting, design and consulting.

The company said the U.K. is aiming to have public cloud services represent nearly half of information and computer technology spending by 2015 through the G-Cloud II vehicle.

CGI won positions on the infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, software-as-a-service and specialist cloud services portions of the contract vehicle.

“We are very pleased to be extending our cloud offerings to the public sector through G-Cloud II,” said Paul Sussex, vice president for U.K. public services.

CGI’s work will include private cloud hosting; Microsoft local cloud and Office 365 service; and Oracle Fusion Factory design, build and cloud services.

The company will also provide the government cloud design and consultancy with the goal of meeting its objective for monitoring vehicle emissions.

CGI said its inclusion on the contract vehicle builds upon its acquisition of Logica, a member of CGI’s team working under the G-Cloud program’s first stage.

Within the U.S., the company provides cloud services to the Department of Homeland Security, National Archives and Records Administration, General Services Administration, Environmental Protection Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
