Vincent Rousselet, a Fellow of the British Computer Society and of the Strategic Planning Society, discusses the latest and current iteration of the CloudStore known as G-Cloud 4. The program showed a remarkable success reflected in the year-on-year growth in revenues—a 10-fold increase for the first six-month period of the year between 2012/13 and 2013/14—£3.5 million to £35.3 million. “This represents about 4 percent of the UK Public sector spend – a pretty significant level for a channel that did not exist two years ago,” Vincent explains. 
According to Vincent, there are three key trends at play: Change in perception of the ‘cloud first’ policy of the Cabinet Office; the fact that the buyers in the public sector are getting more sophisticated; and some public sector bodies (such as the Newcastle Primary Care Trust) appearing as cloud vendors on the portal.
