MoJ goes cloudy

Savvis picks up £14m

The Ministry of Justice is spending £14m on a five-year cloud contract.

The Ministry gets to use Savvis's "infrastructure as a service platform". Civil servants will use the platform to run Enterprise Resource Planning, from Steria and Accenture.

Some 80,000 people will use the ERP system, which includes a common model for human resources, finance, purchasing and payroll.

Savvis claims the system reduces the need for upfront spending and shortens project times; it said departments should get virtually instant access to the services they need. ®
