A Gradian spokesperson commented on the benefits of their additional exposure on the new framework:

Expanding our presence on G-Cloud 11 with these additional awards enables the public sector bodies to easily take advantage of the additional value Gradian brings to our cherry-picked technology stack. It dovetails perfectly with our initiative to make Gradian easy to work with.

The idea of G-Cloud is to cut out a large proportion of “due diligence” on the part of public sector as this will already have been undertaken prior to listing; it effectively expedites the buying process.

In a nutshell it’s all about increasing peace of mind, the message is that Gradian is a credible and safe pair of hands.
