UK Government Procurement Service Offers NeuQs On-line

LEICESTER, England, November 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

NeuQs, a cloud based help desk software solution, is being made available via the G Cloud store; the UK Government Procurement Service's innovative initiative to move the sourcing of IT services on-line.

Managing Director, Martin Roberts of Neustro Consulting, the author of the ITIL compliant help desk software said, "We are very proud to have achieved approved supplier status and welcome this opportunity to provide software services to UK Government departments." He continued, "The G Cloud approach enables small and medium sized companies, like ourselves, to overcome the hurdles and barriers of selling to Government departments. The G cloud program has made this relatively easy to achieve."

Neustro, who provide IT support services to businesses across the world but with a particular focus on the UK Midlands, decided that off the shelf help desk software didn't meet their needs, so they developed their own package 'NeuQs'.

This is available both as download and 'in the Cloud' making use of Microsoft technologies and the Microsoft Azure platform. This ensures that the application is both secure and scalable.

NeuQs is free for three users and then at a small monthly cost for additional users.

About G-Cloud
The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative led by Andy Nelson (Ministry of Justice) supported by Denise McDonagh (Home Office) under the direction of the Chief Information Officer Delivery Board as part of the Government ICT Strategy.

The initial focus is on introducing cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. In order to do this we have undertaken a G-Cloud procurement framework for services under the OJEU process. These services can then be reviewed and purchased through the CloudStore.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
