MuleSoft Joins G-Cloud 8 to Accelerate Adoption of Anypoint Platform in UK Public Sector

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

London – August 2, 2016 – MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks, today announced that MuleSoft is now available on the G-Cloud 8 framework, the UK government’s online digital marketplace. Available as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) supplier, public sector organisations can now leverage the pre-approved catalogue to fast track their adoption of Anypoint Platform™. Across the globe, MuleSoft enables public sector organisations to accelerate digital transformation projects and drive legacy modernisation, through greater connectivity.

G-Cloud extends MuleSoft’s commitment to growing its vertical industry solutions and team of global subject matter experts. Recognised by Gartner for three consecutive years as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), Worldwide,* MuleSoft is built to help organisations across industries connect applications, data and devices in the cloud and on premises. MuleSoft continues to see growing market demand from the UK market, as organisations in the space are recognising that connectivity is critical to achieving their strategic initiatives, such as enriching citizen experiences, increasing operational efficiencies and delivering capabilities through digital channels. UK Public Services customers already include leading organisations such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

The G-Cloud framework is provided by The Crown Commercial Service (CCS), an organisation working to save money for the public sector and the taxpayer. By eliminating the need for organisations to individually research and enter into procurement contracts with technology vendors, G-Cloud drives savings for the taxpayer and improves the quality of commercial and procurement activity. Anypoint Platform will now be easily accessible to central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

“Embracing digital and the cloud has become an imperative the public sector cannot ignore,” said David Wyatt, vice president of EMEA, MuleSoft. “Our hybrid integration platform and API-led connectivity approach are uniquely positioned to help government organisations accelerate their move to the cloud while retaining value from their legacy investments. With Anypoint Platform now available through the Digital Marketplace, we look forward to continuing to expand our leadership in helping the public sector drive citizen engagement and develop transformative services.”

Public sector IT teams are asked to do more than ever while contending with shrinking budgets. This challenge is compounded by the fact that these IT teams are dependent on costly, inflexible legacy systems to execute on mission goals. With Anypoint Platform, organisations can build a seamless application network of applications, data and devices through API-led connectivity, whether in the cloud or on-premises. By making any application, data or device pluggable and reusable, an application network enables government organisations to easily and quickly incorporate new technologies and modernise legacy systems to drive innovation and agility in the public sector.
