Through a strategic alliance with secure cloud infrastructure provider Skyscape, SynApps is bringing cloud-based, open source business solutions based around digital content capture, document and case management, to UK government organisations and public services
Maidenhead, UK – June 10th, 2013 – SynApps Solutions, the content management solutions company, has announced its acceptance onto the latest iteration of the UK Government’s G-Cloud cloud services procurement framework. This makes it easy for the public sector to peruse and buy approved cloud-based technology and application services.
SynApps, which has a strong track record for delivering secure, hosted and cloud-based open source content management services to the public sector, has been awarded G-Cloud III supplier status for a wide range of IaaS, SaaS and Specialist Cloud Services under Lots 1, 3 and 4. SynApps offers three families of cloud-based business solutions under the GCloud III framework – document capture, document management and case management – in partnership with secure cloud infrastructure specialist Skyscape. This is in addition to a series of basic services such as cloud-based content backup, and a full range of consultancy, implementation and support services that are packaged and priced separately.
Among SynApps’ core offerings through G-Cloud III are Alfresco Document Management in the Cloud, and Alfresco Document & Records Management in the Cloud, enabling organisations to rapidly and affordably deploy highly scalable, subscription-based best-of-breed EDM and EDRM applications. Alfresco is a leading open source enterprise content management (ECM) platform. The associated SynApps cloud services provide pre-configured EDM and EDRM applications on demand, which can be integrated with an organisation’s processes and line-of-business applications.
SynApps is a leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions and associated consultancy, implementation and support services. As well as on-premise systems, SynApps provides cloud-based ECM solutions to customers ranging from Hampshire Constabulary to organisations in the life sciences industry.
Thanks to SynApps’ strategic partnership with Skyscape, its G-Cloud solutions will be hosted in highly resilient UK data centres. Skyscape’s Cloud Service infrastructure is certified to support all levels of data sensitivity through the G-Cloud programme, from Impact Level 0 (IL0) to Impact Level 3 (IL3). Skyscape has been a G-Cloud provider since its first iteration in February 2012 and counts the Ministry of Defence and HMRC among its clients.
Phil Dawson, CEO of Skyscape, said “Skyscape is very proud to be working with Synapps, and that Synapps has chosen to sell Skyscape’s highly-secure, resilient and agile services through G-iii, many of which have Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) to IL 3 and IL 2. We fully expect G-iii to be an exciting, highly-competitive and rapidly maturing market, presenting opportunities for buyers and vendors alike”
Previously, SynApps had submitted a single application for inclusion on G-Cloud II – a cloud-service based document management platform and, in a short space of time, it has seen an ever-growing demand for such services. Commenting on the potential of G-Cloud, Jim Whitelaw, Managing Director of SynApps, said, “We have found it to be a powerful vehicle for bringing high-quality solutions to the public sector in the shortest possible time and at best value. Given that enterprise content management is our sole focus, we believe SynApps can add enormous value to the public sector through our cloud services, accelerating organisations’ speed to market with dynamic content-sharing applications based on a choice of market-leading platforms.”
