Total G-Cloud sales have hit £345m after sales of £27m in October, although this was a decrease from the £44m of sales in September. Local government continues to shun the service too, accounting for just six percent of total G-Cloud sales.
Following the same trends of the past quarter, small enterprises still make up the majority of G-Cloud sales in terms of monetary value, generating £184m, or 53 percent, of total cloud services sales.
Large enterprises contributed 47 percent to the total at a value of £162m.
However, the situation is reversed in terms of monthly sales. Large enterprises were responsible for £14m worth of sales in October, 54 percent of the total for the month. This compares with £12m in October sales from small and medium enterprises.
Central government still purchases the majority of services through G-Cloud, making up 79 percent of the total.
The total so far for central government departments is £275m, having increased at an average of £20m a month since the beginning of 2014.
The rest of the public sector lags behind significantly, contributing £71m, or 21 percent, to the total G-Cloud sales. Local government makes up just six percent of overall sales at £20.8m, a number that will no doubt disappoint Whitehall.
Nevertheless, the wider public sector and local governments have consistently spent several million pounds a month acquiring services through G-Cloud.
The public sector continues to favour specialist cloud services over software, platform or infrastructure-as-a-service products, having purchased £21m worth of specialist services in October.
The G-Cloud trends could see some disruption in early 2015 when the government merges the Digital Services and G-Cloud framework.
This will allow IT products and cloud services to be purchased from a wider range of suppliers through a single digital marketplace.
