- Interactive visualisations pre-built in Tableau
- Incorporation of additional salient data including service performance, geographic locations, application lifespan and support contracts
Geoff Davies, FutureProof Co-Founder, said “We’re delighted that CloudScore has been awarded a place within the G-Cloud framework. More suppliers than ever applied to participate on this latest iteration of G-Cloud but, due a more restrictive selection criteria, 18% less suppliers were awarded places than on G-Cloud 7, the previous iteration.
Transforming an enterprise application portfolio is always challenging and the difference in service models of Cloud platforms increases the need for accurate assessment and planning. CloudScore provides this assessment and through powerful, interactive analytics reporting and visualisations provides the fastest way to plan a Cloud migration.
CloudScore will be instrumental in helping public sector organisations achieve cost savings through the rationalisation of applications and utilisation of modern technologies.”
