Sipcom has opened a new UK data centre dedicated to Government contracts. The rapidly growing UC transformation specialist is poised to deliver increased efficiency, improved value, and transparency of data centre hosting utilisation to the entire UK Public Sector. At the core of Sipcom’s offering is a desire to give Public Sector organisations a secure, efficient, and cost-effective route to the Cloud.
“We offer public sector organisations a more cost-effective and efficient route to Cloud digital transformation through our offering,” explains Daniel Allen, CEO, Sipcom. “We can help transform the efficiency of a public sector organisation through data centre colocation with best-in-class risk assurance, flexibility, security, environmental performance, and ability to enable Cloud services.” Designed to enhance the public sector experience of IT and accelerate new government services to market, Sipcom's catalogue of simple-to-buy services delivered via its Sipcom HALO™ platform substantially reduces the operational risk and overall cost of Public Sector departments and organisations.
By opening the data centre, Sipcom hopes to stimulate and work with the Government’s directive to work with mid-sized, specialist firms rather than the largest systems integrators. The data centre located in the London area complies with the IL3 security specification, a government requirement for this type of work. “We already have tens of thousands government employees using our Sipcom HALO™ platform and we hope to double consumption by the end of 2021.
