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 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."
