Precisely | January 11, 2023
Global leader in data integrity solutions, Precisely, is selected to be a supplier for the Crown Commercial Service's G-Cloud 13 Framework. Precisely's portfolio of data integrity solutions is now available on the G-Cloud procurement platform, further establishing the company's reputation as a trusted solutions provider to the central and local governments as well as the public sector.
The G-Cloud initiative aims to make cloud-based services more accessible to the UK government and public sector organizations. The framework only includes suppliers and solution providers who meet the UK Government's highest privacy, security, and scalability standards, allowing organizations to procure the services and solutions they require more quickly and with less risk.
Government and public sector services are under considerable stress, which the COVID-19 pandemic aggravated, and many organizations assigned with meeting demanding digital transformation efforts are struggling with the change. This causes data silos, inefficient resource use, a lack of understanding of citizen needs, and even regulatory compliance concerns.
Data analytics continues to be the most pressing issue for central government departments, a recent Central Gov Strategy Forum study revealed, with 65% of the departments planning to increase spending in this area in 2023.
"Whether organizations are looking to move from antiquated mainframes to the cloud, create data governance frameworks, build data quality for a 360° view of their citizens, or leverage powerful spatial insights, successful digital transformation programs need to be fuelled by accurate, consistent, and contextual data," said Jay Reilly, SVP - EMEA at Precisely. He further stated, "Our placement on G-Cloud 13 means public sector organizations can more easily access our portfolio of data integrity solutions, empowering them to make the confident decisions needed to improve the lives of citizens."
Precisely is the world's leading data integrity firm, serving 12,000 customers in over 100 countries, including 99 of the Fortune 100, by ensuring data consistency, context and accuracy in data. Precisely's data integration, quality, governance, location intelligence, and enrichment technologies help businesses make better decisions and accomplish better results.

MongoDB | February 09, 2023
On February 08, 2023, MongoDB, a software development company, announced that its platform, MongoDB Atlas, has achieved FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program's Moderate Authorized designation.
The MongoDB Atlas for Government platform provides software tools and services for organizations of the U.S. government, enabling them to quickly build and deploy secure, high-scale distributed applications over the cloud. An independent auditor has reported that it fulfills almost all the requirements of the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS). In addition, it makes it easier for educational institutes, local agencies, states, and the federal government, to build updated cloud-native applications while still fulfilling data security and privacy standards.
FedRAMP is a U.S. government program providing a standardized approach to authorization, continuous monitoring, and security assessment for cloud-related products and services. MongoDB received FedRAMP's approval because it fulfilled the requirements of strict performance, compliance, and security standards. It is now listed among FedRAMP-authorized companies, offering cloud software to government organizations to help them innovate and grow faster and more confidently with FedRAMP's approval.
Chief Product Officer of MongoDB, Sahir Azam, said, "Security is our priority at MongoDB and a top priority for our customers. We know that with the proliferation of different types of data that is transmitted and stored in the cloud, protecting sensitive data is increasingly important for both private and public entities." He added, "The FedRAMP Moderate designation, as well as the assessment of MongoDB Atlas for Government in support of customers with CJIS requirements, are the result of our efforts to ensure that MongoDB Atlas for Government is well positioned to secure the country's most crucial data sets and power the most innovative applications designed to transform government. Now the more than 7,500 government organizations leveraging AWS also have access to MongoDB Atlas for Government to create modern applications. We are grateful for the support and partnership of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who sponsored MongoDB throughout the authorization process."
