ANS secure place on new NHS SBS Cloud Solutions Framework

Posted:

Digital and Cloud Services Provider, ANS, has been awarded a place in Lot 3 (Cloud Support Services) on the newly launched NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) Cloud Solutions Framework.

The framework has been launched to simplify the cloud migration process for the public sector. The framework is expected to run for four years and will be accessible not only to NHS organisations, but also the wider public sector.

The Framework’s design aims to provide public sector authorities with access to support services for every step of their journey to the cloud: from consultancy and readiness assessment, to the procurement of their infrastructure and platform and ongoing support, in-house skills development and cloud optimisation.

The NHS Shared Business Services Cloud Solutions framework will provide a concise, OJEU-compliant (Official Journal of the European Union-compliant), flexible and accessible route to procure cloud solutions for public sector authorities, with a smaller and more focused pool of suppliers.

ANS’ CEO Paul Shannon said: “As long-standing suppliers of cloud services to the public sector, we are delighted to support public sector organisation in quickly and easily migrating to cloud and as well as providing the opportunity to increase efficiency savings and improve the patient experience through the use of IoT, AI, data platforms solutions.”
