Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, announced today that its business-user-oriented BI solution has been selected for inclusion under the UK Government’s G-Cloud 7 Framework Agreement.
Melbourne, Victoria, December 30, 2015 — Yellowfin’s inclusion within the agreement – secured by UK reseller partner, Orion & Associates – enables UK public sector organisations to purchase Yellowfin, via Orion & Associates, without needing to run a full tender or competition procurement process.
G-Cloud is a procurement vehicle used by the UK Government for the provision of cloud-based information technology solutions and services. The G-Cloud Framework acts as a ‘digital marketplace’, allowing public sector ogranisations to quickly search a catalogue of approved suppliers, which facilitates the fast and easy purchase of cloud-based technologies.
“Offering Yellowfin as a hosted solution, via cloud providers such as Amazon’s AWS platform, Orion & Associates delivers a robust BI platform for public sector organisations moving in the direction of data-driven decision-making,” said Yellowfin Managing Director for EMEA, Peter Baxter. “Yellowfin’s strong track record of working with public sector organisations in the UK, such as the National Health Service [NHS], coupled with being named top-ranked ‘mid-sized deployments’ vendor in EMEA for Cloud BI by BARC’s The BI Survey 15, meant selection under the G-Cloud Framework Agreement was a natural fit,” said Baxter.
“Yellowfin is perfect for public sector organisations looking to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of the cloud while maintaining strong governance and security,” said Orion & Associates’ Managing Director, David Pearson. “Information can be prepared, analysed, reported on and collaboratively engaged with via dashboards and storyboards that can be securely delivered to any platform or device,” said Pearson.
Orion & Associates is a specialised data and information management company that offers innovative and commercially attractive solutions and consulting services.
