UK Public Sector Migration to Amazon Web Services Information Page


UK Public Sector Migration to Amazon Web Services Information Page

 

This year Basware have made the decision to move to Amazon Web Services for their UK Public Sector customers as our preferred cloud provider. This move will provide many improvements including in security and performance.

Both customers and suppliers will not see any change to the service itself and all functional capabilities are staying the same.

FAQ’s

Do I need to do anything?

For Basware Marketplace customers using punch-out, the URL’s you use to connect need to be changed and this can be done at any time as well as whitelisting our new IP’s. A proxy has been set up so you can make this change before the official migration date so any testing can be done.

 

Do my suppliers need to do anything?

Suppliers that provide a Punchout catalogue or use Back Office Integration will potentially need to whitelist our new IP’s and make a URL change for those that send eInvoices to us direct. All these suppliers have been contacted by Basware and are aware of what is required.

 

Will the log in URL change?

Yes, For Basware Marketplace users who access via a browser the URL changes from:

 https://buyers.procserveonline.com/admin/login/auth to https://buyers.mpuk.basware.com/admin/login/auth

You can start using this new log in URL right away (and remember to update your browser favorite's list if you have it saved there!).

Do I need to wait for the official Migration date to change my URL’s?

No, the migration date is purely in regard to the migration of data that Basware will be performing and the downtime required, not the URL’s. The URL’s can be changed at any time and the cut off for making these URL changes will be the migration date

 

Does this mean the marketplace is moving to Amazon?

No, Amazon Web Services (AWS) are a cloud hosting provider, similar to Microsoft Azure. The UK Marketplace will continue to be dedicated to the UK Public Sector and is design and implement following NCSC guidance, particularly the NCSC Cloud Security Principles.
