Insight joins Cloud Industry Forum
The Cloud Industry Forum is on a roll. The organisation has signed up Insight UK, its third new member in just two weeks.
The Cloud Industry Forum has attracted yet another member. Insight UK has joined the group, the third new member in less than a fortnight.
The industry association for all cloud providers and resellers has been growing rapidly since its launch in 2009. In the last couple of weeks, both Dell and Telehouse Europe have joined the forum and the organisation now boasts well over 20 members.
Insight's InsightCloud provides organisations with a single source for cloud-based applications and services, from hosted email, desktop and Microsoft SharePoint. It also offers customers a range of cloud support services.
"Insight has joined the forum as part of its commitment to delivering cloud services to customers. Bodies such as this provide a valuable way for end-users to discover where cloud-based services are right for them," said Emma de Sousa, vice president for UK and Northern Europe at Insight.
"Insight's approach to the market is based on being the trusted advisor to our customers, and this matches well with the aims of the Cloud Industry Forum."
Tech industry heavyweight Dell joined the forum earlier this month, just a week after Telehouse signed up.
"Having a major technology player like Dell commit to joining the Cloud Industry Forum really reinforces just how imperative cloud has become to the future vision of the technology industry. We are delighted to have Dell on board and believe that its participation will strengthen the imperative of cloud service providers to assess their efforts and aim towards providing transparency and reliability around operations," Cloud Industry Forum chairman Andy Burton, said at the time.
"The move also acknowledges the credibility of our Code of Practice and what this means for innovation and developments in the cloud. Gaining the public support of Dell is an important milestone for CIF in its aim of assisting end users in differentiating the real credible and professional service providers and innovators in the industry from those who are not. The cloud industry is young, progressive and a real enabler for competitive advantage in business transformation, and Dell's membership and shared vision is a welcome positive move for the market."
