Available to all public sector organisations, the Back Office Software (BOS) and Software Design and Implementation Services (SDIS) frameworks give you access to the software, skills and services you need to deploy cloud-based back office systems or upgrade legacy IT systems.
With an increasing trend for organisations to migrate more of their on premise workloads to the cloud, moving the workloads of back office systems is a fundamental part of this. Often used to manage business operations, including Human Capital Management (HCM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), successfully moving these workloads to the cloud can help you achieve large cost and workflow efficiencies.
You will find market leading vendors and suppliers offering value added services, alongside support and maintenance for products and services through the BOS framework. The framework is ideally suited to support policies such as ‘Cloud First’ and the ‘One Government Cloud Strategy’ where public sector buyers are encouraged to initially consider Software as a Service (SaaS) models, particularly for their enterprise IT and back office functions .
During extensive market engagement it was clear that one size doesn’t fit all. Organisations have a wide range of requirements from support for migration away from highly customised on premise software,to complex system implementation, configuration and implementation, and specialist support for change management. To that end, the SDIS agreement offers you access to a wide number of suppliers, ranging from SMEs with specialist expertise through to large service integrators and software vendors.
With ‘the cloud’ providing greater ability to automate back office processes and workflows, we want to help you reduce your transactional efforts and focus on more strategic outputs. Given the heightened requirements for cloud migration over the past 12 months, BOS and SDIS will underpin the direction of procurement in this space.
To supplement these frameworks, we also offer a variety of Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with some of the largest vendors in the industry including Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and Workday. These agreements offer market leading discounts and beneficial terms for public sector customers buying cloud products and services.
