Submission + - Huddle secures 89% of UK government G-Cloud spend since launch (

DerekduPreez writes: "London-based software company Huddle secured 89 percent of the £453,778.38 that was spent in the first two months of the government’s G-Cloud framework going live.

Despite there being 257 suppliers on the CloudStore, start-up Huddle has secured six out of the 11 recorded sales, which equates to £402,125 of the £453,778.38 spent thus far. Purchasers of the SharePoint alternative include the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

“The fact that Huddle has secured 89 per cent of total G-Cloud sales so far is a clear indication that public sector organizations are now more than ready to make the move from costly on-premise legacy systems to innovative cloud-based technologies,” said Simon O’Kane, VP of enterprise at Huddle."
