Engineering consultancy Atkins expands services on G-Cloud
Atkins, the UK's largest engineering consultancy, has added three new cloud based services on G-Cloud, an online catalogue of information and communications services for the UK public sector, the company has announced. The new services are FARYNOR fire safety records management, CIRRUSmaps web mapping platform and geospatial consultancy. Atkins now has 17 services listed on G-Cloud, ranging from cloud design and testing, to cloud strategy and implementation. Three of Atkins' software systems - LOCARD forensics case management, FARYNOR and CIRRUSmaps - are also available on G-Cloud as a 'software as a service'. Colin Heyes, Atkins emergency services manager, explains: "Traditionally, purchasing software involved upfront payments for a licence fee and the server infrastructure. With 'software as a service', you pay per user, per month or year, and the software is hosted on a 'cloud' server. The result is that you pay as you go and become 'infrastructure-free'."
