Oracle | June 09, 2021
Today Oracle has further expanded its commitment to the UK Government with the update of an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and Oracle, as well as a new commitment to enhance Oracle's Government Centre of Excellence. The updated arrangement is expected to foster an even stronger working relationship between Oracle and the UK public sector, enabling better use of secure cloud technologies. The Oracle Centre of Excellence will provide additional support and technical capabilities to help the UK Government better use Oracle Cloud.
CCS – the UK's largest public procurement organization – supports the UK public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. Last year, CCS helped the UK public sector achieve commercial benefits worth more than £1 billion – supporting world-class public services that offer the best value for taxpayers.
Oracle and the UK Government first signed an MOU in 2012, paving the way for a long-term partnership. The updated MOU will ensure that central, local, and devolved governments and all public service departments and agencies, such as NHS Trusts, can make continued use of Oracle Cloud. Critical public services will have access to the full suite of Oracle Cloud applications, secure infrastructure services, and autonomous technology. The Oracle Cloud can help customers like the UK Government drive greater efficiencies, automation, and productivity, all of which could support the UK economic recovery.
The enhanced Oracle Centre of Excellence will provide the UK Government with even more support for its use of Oracle Cloud, enabling better use of secure cloud technologies to support long-term innovation and transformation of public services. It will provide public sector organizations with additional support in moving workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or expanding their Oracle Cloud Applications Suite.
Oracle provides the only dual-region sovereign cloud for UK public sector customers and works with hundreds of public sector customers, such as the Home Office, Office for National Statistics, the NHS NEP, Birmingham City Council, the Ministry of Defence, and West Midlands Police. The updated MOU expands on these relationships and will allow more public sector organizations to use cloud technologies for their efforts to deliver the best possible public services and greater value for the taxpayer.
Oracle offers integrated suites of applications plus secure, autonomous infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud.
