Total G-Cloud sales have reached £1.141bn, rising by a hefty £87m after a bumper month of sales in March.
The Cabinet Office has provided no indication on what fuelled this spike in sales, as normal G-Cloud spending is £40m to £50m a month.
However, it would be logical to assume that the recent launch of a new Digital Marketplace framework helped to boost the government’s and wider public sector’s appetite for cloud services.
Breaking no trends, however, is the spending split through the government’s cloud procurement framework. Some 52 per cent of the total sales by value and 62 per cent by volume were awarded to SMEs, much the same as February’s figures.
