*NEW RESEARCH* Digital Marketplace Review 2020

Report LogoTechMarketView’s Digital Marketplace Review 2020 research reveals £2.83bn was spent through the G-Cloud and Digital Outcomes & Specialists (DOS) frameworks during the calendar year; this represents growth of 19% compared to 2019.

G-Cloud spend was up 26% to £1.99bn and DOS spending, which totalled £845m, grew by 4% compared to the previous year. The impact of the pandemic on spending is clear to see, with Health spend up 65% year-on-year across both frameworks to £432m. This includes Department of Health & Social Care spend rising by 769% to £62.9m and NHS Digital up 92% to £118.2m.

In 2020 the rate of growth in spend with SMEs exceeded that of large companies, but large companies still attracted the majority (63%) of spend.

Two companies broke the £100m barrier for Digital Marketplace income during the year. AWS remains at the top of the supplier rankings based on G-Cloud income, ending the year up 27% at £104.9m (2019: £82.9m)—see AWS agrees new partnership with Home Office for further discussion. Kainos continued to lead the way on the DOS framework with revenue of £82.9m (2019: £84.7m) and it also secured business via G-Cloud, taking total Digital Marketplace income to £104.0m (see Kainos powers ahead).  

However, it was Palantir that achieved the most impressive growth during the year, with revenue rising from £833k in 2019 to £28.2m in 2020—growth of 3280%. The bulk of Palantir’s income (£14.9m) was from its work on the UK Government's COVID-19 response, but it also secured key defence and Cabinet Office contracts (see Palantir secures £20m deal to help monitor the UK border).
