Credits, a blockchain infrastructure provider, has announced its partnership with Skyscape Cloud Services Limited, to deliver Blockchain-as-a-Service to UK public sector organisations.

“We’re seeing a growing number of organisations across industries beginning to explore how blockchain technology can help to streamline or modernise operations, or allow them to offer new, compelling services, and are thrilled to bring Blockchain-as-a-Service technology to the UK public sector in collaboration with Skyscape,” said Nick Williamson, CEO and founder of Credits.

Using Credits platform, organisations can easily and quickly build robust blockchains that address the challenges of establishing provenance, authentication and reconciliation faced by many industry sectors, including central and local government as well as other public sector bodies.  The Credits platform is designed to facilitate seamless and secure interoperability with other legacy systems and blockchain providers.

“We’re pleased to be working with Credits to bring new and innovative blockchain solutions to support the digital transformation of public services” said Simon Hansford, CEO at Skyscape Cloud Services. “The partnership will further benefit our extensive community of partners serving the UK public sector who will now also be able to quickly and easily build robust blockchains.”

Skyscape, a specialist service provider, focuses solely on providing assured cloud services to the UK public sector. It is a market leader, providing services across the length and breadth of the public sector to include central government, local government, health, education, research, police and justice, and defence.

In addition to Credits blockchain technology, public sector customers will also benefit from Skyscape’s assurance and security credentials.  Skyscape’s services are suitable for all data at OFFICIAL (including OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE) plus it is a certified Public Services Network (PSN) service provider, has been awarded aggregator status for the N3 network and also offers service over other secure network such as PNN.

“Skyscape’s industry-leading platform, unique connectivity and assurance credentials, combined with Credits’ blockchain technology create a competitive advantage for us as the first cloud provider with a blockchain offering for the UK public sector”, Williamson added.

The news follows the launch of the public beta test version of Credits’ new Blockchain Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) earlier this month. Credits has been working in direct partnership with the Isle of Man Government on several initiatives – including the first known government service to be run on blockchain.  Credits says that its work with the Isle of Man Government has attracted increased interest from other Government entities as well.
