Cloud-specialist consultancy Amido is the latest organisation to tap into the benefits of Cloud Industry Forum membership
The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), the industry body focused on raising standards in the cloud sector has announced that London-based technical consultancy Amido has become its latest member.
Amido is an independent cloud-based consultancy that works with brands, public sector agencies and global banks to streamline their IT infrastructures.
It was listed at #12 in the 2017 Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 and has experienced a 124% increase in international sales in the past two years.
CIF is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve standards and education in the industry. It provides a Code of Practice to endorse providers of cloud services and, through its Professional CIF Membership scheme, assists end users to enable them to adopt such services.
“Being part of CIF will enable us to work more closely with key players in the cloud industry and their eLearning schemes will also help us to accelerate our technical expertise. We look forward to working with CIF and its members to drive best practise and transparency in the cloud market,” said Alan Walsh, CEO of Amido.
CIF has three priorities:
* Create a platform to discuss, engage and partner within the community to ensure thought-leadership and market direction. We do this through regular members meetings, media and customer events, whitepapers and market research
* To drive a public level of transparency about the capability of Cloud Service Providers through a process of self-certification to an EU-recognised Code of Practice. This Code of Practice enables CSPs to present their proposition as trusted suppliers while raising their brand
* CIF has built a Professional Membership program enabling IT professionals to see best practice of adoption. Following a Cloud Adoption Roadmap, users and suppliers can enhance their skills and achieve certification via an online training process.
“Amido has a deep understanding of the benefits of cloud and a wide knowledge of where the market is. As a consultancy that helps organisations to tap into those benefits, Amido has a lot to contribute to our work and to the market as a whole,” said Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF.
