CIF takes EuroCloud UK’s 50+ members
The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has swelled its ranks after absorbing EuroCloud’s UK chapter after it ceased operations yesterday (January 31).
EuroCloud UK’s 50+ members are all being invited to transition their membership to CIF with immediate effect and CIF will continue to honour the terms of their EuroCloud UK memberships with the additional benefits of CIF’s membership.
“EuroCloud UK has played an important role in the continued development of the cloud industry both here and on the continent so I’m delighted to be joining forces and welcoming its members to the CIF family. CIF will continue to honour the commitments made to EuroCloud UK’s members and I think we will be all the stronger for it,” said Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum.
“EuroCloud UK’s 50 members have a significant amount of experience in the public sector, particularly with G-Cloud, and a strong footprint in Europe, which will be of direct benefit to CIF and our existing roster of members.”
EuroCloud UK was set up to encourage and promote the interests and benefits of cloud computing within the UK and to enable knowledge sharing, networking and alliances within the industry. It says it decided to join forced with CIF to continue to promote those goals.
Its members will have access to CIF’s Professional Membership and e-learning scheme, and will be encouraged to continue their membership with CIF once they reach their membership anniversary with EuroCloud UK.
“The Cloud Industry Forum’s mission is very closely aligned to that of EuroCloud UK’s and we have always seen clear synergies between the two organisations,” said Phil Wainewright, chair of EuroCloud UK. “Combining forces with all our members under the CIF banner and working towards a common goal is a welcome development that stands to benefit the wider industry. I’m very pleased with the contribution EuroCloud UK has made since I founded the organisation with the help and support of other leading figures in the industry, and I look forward to very positive results from our new cooperation with CIF.”
