BOSTON, October 10, 2017 – MEGA International has been certified by the UK government to be part of its Digital Marketplace, which allows public-sector bodies in the UK to purchase IT products and services through faster, simpler procurement processes.
MEGA is now part of the Digital Marketplace’s G-Cloud 9 initiative, designed to simplify procurement of cloud-related IT services and technologies by public sector organisations. It centralises the vendor qualification process, removing lengthy, complicated procurement requirements for every IT purchase.
“For years, MEGA has worked with ministerial departments, agencies, public bodies and not-for-profits throughout the UK, providing technology solutions that help them help their constituents. This certification will make it even easier for them to access MEGA’s innovative technology,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA.
Through a rigorous application and review process for suppliers, G-Cloud 9 helps the UK central government, local governments, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence, and not-for-profit s streamline the purchasing process, gaining:
• access to 2,800 suppliers and 19,000 services
• rapid deployment of technologies and increased agility to serve constituents
• faster acquisition of innovative products and services
• reduced procurement costs and total cost of ownership
With this certification, hundreds of public sector organisations in the UK can purchase MEGA’s solutions more quickly and efficiently. For more than 25 years, MEGA’s enterprise architecture, IT portfolio management and other solutions have been used by agencies and businesses in the UK and around the world to increase agility, streamline complexity and manage change.
There is also keen interest in MEGA’s HOPEX GDPR solution that helps organisations meet the requirements of the European Union General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR), guiding them toward compliance with the forthcoming 2018 deadline.
