Explaination of Terms

We realise that sometimes terminology can be confusing so to help we have written some very short descriptions of these three key terms.

1. SAAS refers to cloud hosted software where the software is hosted elsewhere and made available to the customer via the internet. This removes the need for self-hosting, reducing the potential hardware and maintenance overheads to the customer and making it easier to have software that is always uptodate on responsive, secure hosting platforms.

2. Corporate Software solutions are a group of services provided by Crown Commerical Services a government platform for the procurement of goods and services available to Government, Public Sector and Third Sector organisations.

3. Digital Marketplace and G-Cloud are our way of providing and hosting the software. The software itself can be found and bought through Digital Marketplace where licensing can be managed and G-Cloud (not to be confused with Google Cloud) is the hosting provision from Crown Commercial Services. Unfortunately, Digital Marketplace is not very easy to search but here is a link to our page.
