(businesspress24) - New name for high growth cloud services company coincides with impending launch of latest G-Cloud iteration, G-Cloud 8

London – August 1, 2016 – Skyscape Cloud Services Limited, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company, has today renamed and relaunched as UKCloud Ltd (www.ukcloud.com), to reinforce the company’s exclusive focus on supporting the UK public sector in the digital transformation of services.

“In a very short space of time, as Skyscape Cloud Services, we have experienced rapid growth and have established our company as the leading player in the market,” said Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud. “We’re very proud to have helped save millions of pounds of public money by delivering more agile, lower cost IT solutions throughout high-profile Government departments, including the DVLA, Home Office and MOD. Our new name – UKCloud – reflects our unwavering commitment to serving the UK public sector and supporting the digital transformation of citizen-facing services.”

Hansford goes on to say “the Company has taken the decision to relaunch the company on the latest iteration of G-Cloud, G-Cloud 8, with a new name that best portrays the company’s unequivocal focus on the UK public sector and reaffirms its commitment to the market. With the imminent arrival of G-Cloud 8, this was an opportune moment to refresh our brand. At UKCloud, we remain steadfastly focused on working with the public sector, helping to digitise services with our agile, assured and cost-effective cloud services.”

Over the past year, UKCloud has experienced unprecedented growth, significantly expanding its customer base, market share and channel partner programme. In terms of number of employees, the company has grown more than ten-fold in four years, with expectations to double its headcount by the end of 2016. UKCloud has also received widespread industry recognition to date, recently winning the Communications category of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA Award.



Committed to continually evolving its platform, UKCloud recently became the first cloud services provider to offer OpenStack compatible services exclusively for the UK public sector and is the first cloud provider focused on the UK public sector to offer a platform based on Oracle technology. It is also set to announce further support options in the coming months.

Hansford concluded: “Our sole focus on the UK public sector gives us unparalleled insight into the evolving needs of our customers and partners. Over the past year, we have continued to develop and improve our pioneering assured cloud platform in a number of ways. Additionally, we’ve focussed attention on customer service with new recruits specifically dedicated to ensuring customer satisfaction and a new online portal designed to encourage end-user feedback, ensuring this influences our product development roadmap going forward. For us, these developments and this re-brand provide the perfect launch pad for our business as we continue to grow and innovate enabling our customers and partners to deliver better outcomes for citizens and taxpayers.”

There will be no changes to the company’s legal entity, services, security protocols, organisation structure, governance or shareholdings.
