The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the U.K. government and cloud software and service suppliers to encourage the use of cloud-based services within the public sector market. Buying through G-Cloud 11 enables public sector organisations faster and more streamlined access to cloud services, rather than having to enter into individual procurement contracts.
This G-Cloud 11 framework recognition is significant because it enables BitTitan to provide MigrationWiz to a vast pool of public sector resellers and service providers. The G-Cloud framework forecasted it has secured £1.9bn (~$2.3 billion) in public sector IT spending for this particular 11th iteration. All the service offerings of MigrationWiz that are provided on the framework can be found here.
MigrationWiz is the industry-leading solution enabling IT professionals to migrate email and other data from a wide range of Sources and Destinations. It works with leading cloud ecosystems like Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Dropbox.
In early July, BitTitan added new capabilities to support the migration of the Microsoft Teams collaboration platform. According to growth figures from Microsoft, more than half a million organisations have adopted Teams, including 91 percent of Fortune 100 companies, with that number expected to climb as more end users move to Microsoft Office 365.
While MigrationWiz has been the preferred tool for IT professionals to migrate users and data to or between instances of Office 365, the addition of Teams migration capabilities enables these professionals to support this growing workload demand and deliver an end-to-end Office 365 migration experience.
“There is an ever-expanding need for reliable, dependable cloud solutions within the U.K. public sector and we are extremely proud to be a G-Cloud approved supplier,” said Mark Kirstein, vice president of products with BitTitan. “Being a part of the G-Cloud 11 framework enables BitTitan to provide quicker, more streamlined access to MigrationWiz’s cloud migration capabilities to further support the increasing demand of cloud services within the public sector.”
Since its inception in 2012 and operated by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), the G-Cloud is in its 11th iteration and provides access to over 30,000 services and 4,200 cloud suppliers in its Digital Marketplace. The CCS is the largest public procurement organisation in the UK.
