Capita, Fujitsu and pals tuck into slices of £3bn London NHS framework


Re: Cloud ??


"No or low cost" - are you kidding? The cloud is expensive. Probably a lot cheaper than the kind of pricing involved in this deal, but not cheap and certainly not free.

The other factor is that directly using these cloud services is apparently too complex so a contract gets awarded to a 'partner' organisation which will manage all the cloud infrastructure. So they're not just paying for the vehicle but also for the private chauffeur.

It's all depressingly wasteful.
