Her Majesty’s G-Cloud - Providing a Level Playing Field for SMEs

01.06.2017 10:45 am

Starting a small business is tough. Establishing and maintaining that business is tougher. The government’s G-Cloud framework is one more tool to assist SMEs in gaining a foothold against the competition by connecting SMEs directly with anyone the public sector looking for cloud service providers.

The framework is great exposure, as well as a great resource for SMEs to connect with the public sector directly. As more and more SMEs work with the government, I think we can expect to see much faster growth within the sector - specifically within cloud services, cloud hosting and digital specialists.

With this said, although the framework is a great resource, it shouldn’t be an SME’s only tool and doesn’t make up for a larger sales strategy. The framework puts SMEs on equal footing with larger competitors broken down by categories, which is great news. However it’s crucial that SMEs emphasise what they’re great at: flexibility, dedicated teams and support, and strong packages of services. That’s what will make SMEs stand out.
