Rosslyn Analytics Joins UK Government’s Latest G-Cloud 5 Framework for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Providers

To help councils go beyond cost savings limitations outlined in a recent Local Government Association report(1), Rosslyn Analytics, a leader in cloud-based data management and analytics, today announced that its award-winning self-service spend analytics solution is now available for public sector organisations for free, following its inclusion in the G-Cloud 5 Framework. Subsequent users cost just £49 per person.

Unlike traditional labour-intensive spend analysis systems, Rosslyn Analytics’ smart spend analysis app provides deeper visibility of potential savings opportunities within minutes of loading data into the secure cloud-based platform, with ready-to-use analytics apps delivered as a service (SaaS).

“It’s clear to everyone that both local and central government organisations must adopt new and innovative ways of delivering savings and making a difference to the bottom line,” said Charles Clark, CEO of Rosslyn Analytics. “Rosslyn Analytics believes that delivering value, and ensuring the continuity of front line services for taxpayers lies in the data that public sector organisations have, but which they are not tapping into, because the information wasn’t readily available for analysis by decision-makers – until now – with self-service spend analytics.”

Rosslyn Analytics, the originator of self-service spend analytics, has a long history of helping public sector leaders stay at the forefront of the rapidly-changing technology landscape; demonstrating the quick business value of cloud computing, such as an initial return on investment in as little as eight weeks.

“G-Cloud is the future of government procurement because it gives public sector organisations access to easy-to-use business tools that have historically been too costly and cumbersome to manage,” said Lindsay Smith, Secretary General, Eurocloud UK. “Rosslyn Analytics’ self-service data analytics solution, hosted in the cloud, is a fine example of British innovation and represents the value found in government frameworks.”

In 2010, Rosslyn Analytics proved the power of cloud analytics by validating the ease and speed in which the UK’s spend data could be transformed into actionable information. Within 18 hours of HMRC releasing 30 million rows of raw Combined Online Information System (COINS) data from 2005 to 2010, the team made the insight publically available to taxpayers.

The following year, the company offered to help the Cabinet Office reduce the country’s deficit by carrying out a central government-wide spend analysis project free of charge.

From today, public sector organisations can start using the free spend analytics apps by contacting Rosslyn Analytics at [email protected].

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
