CloudStore 2.0 goes live
Monday, May 21, 2012
The delayed second iteration of the Government CloudStore has gone live, providing a list of 1,700 cloud-based products and services from over 250 vendors.
The new build adds the function to make purchases through the store as well as improved SEO and the ability to filter G-Cloud attributes, compare services and carry out faster payments. The new version of CloudStore backtracks however on Cabinet Office comments that the service would be open source, requiring that users register to use the government’s eMarketplace.
Eleanor Stewart, engagement manager for the G-Cloud programme, said: “We’re going to focus on improving access to the CloudStore catalogue data so others can create stores tailored to different audiences and look at putting in place ratings and reviews”.
