The Cloud Brokerage, an initiative of the Quebec Government, aims to centralize and qualify cloud service offerings for Quebec's public organizations. This system ensures a rigorous selection of service providers, ensuring compliance and security of cloud solutions.

From the launch of the cloud brokerage program by the Quebec Government, Levio has played a key role, symbolizing our leadership position in the digital transformation of public services. Our partnership with the Ministry of Cybersecurity and Digital Technology (MCN) underscores our commitment to innovation and excellence in the field of technological solutions.

What is the Cloud Brokerage?

The Cloud Brokerage's role in qualifying and selecting cloud services for public sector organizations is reinforced by the presence of renowned suppliers in its catalogs. In the first catalog, which lists qualified cloud services, we find a host of services offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS, renowned for its wide range of cloud solutions, is listed as a major supplier, offering services that meet the rigorous security and performance criteria set by the broker.

Meanwhile, the second catalog, which focuses on professional services to support public sector organizations in their transition to the cloud, includes specialist companies such as Levio.

Levio, known for its expertise in supporting and implementing cloud solutions, offers essential services to help organizations navigate the complex cloud landscape. Levio's presence in the second catalog ensures that public sector organizations have access to professional, personalized support for the adoption of cloud technologies.
