G-Cloud is not dead but faces grave challenges

Silicon - Whitehall is pressing ahead with its G-Cloud project but faces a "monumental challenge" in moving IT services to the cloud, according to a report out this week.

The G-Cloud project's aim is to reduce the number of datacentres run by government, from more than 8,000 down to about nine, by delivering public sector IT services from the cloud.

In a report, What's become of the UK government's G-Cloud programme?, TechMarketView analyst Georgina O'Toole said the coalition government remains committed to the project, which was started under Labour, but warned of the challenges ahead.
