TNP awarded place on GCloud1119/07/2019
Public sector networking specialist TNP has been awarded a place on the Government’s G-Cloud 11 Digital Marketplace procurement framework designed to help local authorities, health trusts and other public sector organisations to use the cloud more effectively.
TNP (The Networking People) is offering professional consultancy including advising local authorities and health trusts on migration to Cloud services or ongoing support, assessing the Cloud-ready status of their networks, and providing Cloud hosting via their CloudConnect hosted public WiFi platform.
As a Cloud hosting supplier TNP can provide cloud platform or infrastructure services that can help public sector organisations to deploy, manage and run software, as well as offering processing, storage or networking resources.
A key advantage of G-Cloud 11 is that public sector organisations can pick and choose the assistance they need, and pay only for what they use.
Ian Anderson, Solutions Architect with TNP explains: “A great number of local authorities and health trusts want to make more use of the Cloud to enhance their service delivery. However, they often find their existing network configurations don’t provide the flexible and resilient infrastructure required to deliver Cloud access across a broad spectrum of users.”
At TNP we offer the benefit of huge experience within the public sector to assess systems and advise on making networks Cloud-friendly. That specialist knowledge helps local authorities and health trusts to interact with the Cloud more effectively, avoiding major cost hikes where possible by setting up and maintaining their Cloud network infrastructure. Our more flexible approach to support enables them to deliver more efficient, more cost effective and safer services.
The G-Cloud 11 upgrade went live at the beginning of July and replaces the previous G-Cloud framework. Operating through the Digital Marketplace it is designed by the Crown Commercial Service to enable organisations to purchase services from a wider pool of suppliers – particularly small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
