Total G-Cloud sales have hit £696m as momentum gains in public sector cloud spending.
Sales in July totalled £32m, a rise of £7m compared with June's figures for sales made through the cloud procurement framework, indicating that the summer dip in G-Cloud sales is over for 2015.
There is still an even split in the total sales by value between small/medium businesses and larger enterprises, much like the trends established over the past 12 months of G-Cloud sales activity.
Smaller companies contributed 60 percent of the total in terms of volume of sales, but bigger deals closed by larger firms meant that the values of those sales is equal.
The government and Cabinet Office have not yet updated the sales dashboard that breaks down the types of cloud products that attract the most spending.
Downing Street has touted the success of the Gov.uk website, which consolidated 300 public sector sites into one, but it seems that there are still inefficiencies in getting detailed information on service performance, even though it is positive.
V3 contacted the Cabinet Office for more information, but had not received a reply at the time of publication.
The government released some details showing that G-Cloud sales trends have not been bucked, and that central government departments have contributed 76 percent of the sales value to the total made through the cloud procurement framework to date.
The wider public sector lags behind Whitehall, despite a growing interest in cloud adoption.
Georgia O'Toole, director and public sector analyst at TechMarketView, told V3 that the figures do not always indicate the penetration of cloud services and products in government.
"I would never extrapolate the G-Cloud figures and assume it can tell me anything about cloud uptake in government," she said.
"Firstly, much that has gone through G-Cloud, like agile consulting and hosting, doesn't fit in a true cloud definition. Secondly, there will be a significant amount of cloud-related work going on outside the G-Cloud framework, i.e. in legacy IT services contracts or newer hybrid arrangements. I would be very careful using the G-Cloud figures to come to any broader conclusions."
More solid evidence of cloud use in the public sector can be seen in the British Army's cloud adoption ambitions, and Peterborough Council's radical IT overhaul with the use of the AWS cloud platform.
