CCS announces next iteration of HPE Memorandum of Understanding

Crown Commercial Service has announced that has signed a new three-year Memorandum of Understanding with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, that enables organisations in the public sector accelerate their journey to cloud services.

Following the previous MoU between the two organisations, this new iteration looks to build and expand on the success of the previous one that was signed in 2020. Customers in the public sector will be able to access a wide range of additional discounts across the full range of HPE’s high performance computing and cloud solutions, including storage and networking.

All customers in the public sector will be able to benefit from discounts, regardless of the size of the organisation or the size of the order. This marks a change, where previously there were some discounts that were reserved for larger government departments and there is no minimum order volume.

Dr Philip Orumwense CBE, Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer for CCS, said:

“CCS has renewed and extended our relationship with HPE through this updated Memorandum of Understanding which will help our customers accelerate their IT modernisation, achieve sustainability, and utilise systems that harness the power of data to improve services for citizens.

“This MoU extends to cover all areas of HPE’s portfolio including new key areas such as HPE’s pay-as-you go GreenLake platform – making it easier for all public sector bodies, not matter how big or small, to get value for money.”

Customers across the public sector are also able to benefit from HPE’s environmental and sustainability solutions, with this including a fee sustainability assessment for the first 100 customers. Such an assessment will provide analysis of a customer’s energy efficiency, as well as supply them with guidance on how they can undertake IT transformation, data centre optimisation and transformational project services that will support sustainability goals. This includes engineering and transformation.
