The firm’s ten service offers focussing on Cloud consulting, Service Integration and Management (SIAM) and Project and programme management are now listed on the Digital Marketplace. These services align with the guidelines provided by the Government Digital Service (GDS) and Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
The Digital Marketplace lists Wavestone’s Cloud and SIAM consulting services for purchase in the “Specialist Cloud Services” (SCS) category. The firm’s offerings include assessing cloud readiness and developing the business case for procuring and migrating to a cloud delivery model. Similarly they focus on the contract lifecycle for SIAM services from requirement analysis to procurement and implementation. The service portfolio is designed to enable public sector organisations to truly transform their ICT environments without the burden of expensive bespoke consulting services. Wavestone’s fixed-price delivery model, pre-agreed SFIA rate card and defined set of deliverables and outputs ensure a value driven solution for public sector organisations.
“Public Sector organisations are continuing their transition away from large IT monolithic contracts towards multi-sourcing and SIAM style models… the G-Cloud 7 framework will further encourage and enable that transition.” Andrew Wilson, Director of Government, Utilities and Energy practice at Wavestone. “As the UK Government pushes for ‘Digital by Default’ and digital transformation, our Cloud and SIAM consulting services along with project and programme management will play a significant role in successfully delivering transformation programmes to achieve the required cost savings, agility and efficiency objectives of public sector organisations”
On Wavestone’s qualification, Andrew Wilson said: “We are delighted to offer Cloud and SIAM consulting services to the public sector. The qualification for the G-Cloud 7 framework is an endorsement of Wavestone’s integrity, experience, value for money and quality of service offerings.”
