From processing online driving licence and visa applications to a DNA sequencing project that will help to fight rare diseases, UKCloud has worked to improve the way the government procures IT and delivers public services. Backed by growth-capital firm BGF, it boosted its sales to £42.9m in the year to April. It has since launched new initiatives, including a disaster recovery service to help in the event of a data centre outage or disruption, and a division that focuses on the healthcare sector. Co-founder and chief executive Simon Hansford, 52, previously set up IT services provider Attenda, which ranked No 2 in the inaugural Tech Track 100 in 2001.
