• Cloud Industry Forum takes on EuroCloud UK’s members

        • The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has announced an agreement with EuroCloud UK that will see its 50 odd UK members absorbed into the CIF membership community, following EuroCloud’s UK chapter ceasing operations from 31st January 2017. The arrangement will enhance CIF’s membership, footprint and outreach, and looks to build on the work that EuroCloud has focused on across the public sector and elsewhere.

          EuroCloud UK, established as part of the EuroCloud network of national communities, 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. As of today (1 February 2017), the EuroCloud UK brand will cease to exist and CIF will take over the EuroCloud UK membership. EuroCloud UK’s 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.

          Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum said, “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. 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’s members will have full access to CIF’s value proposition, including its 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. 

          Phil Wainewright, Chair of EuroCloud UK added, “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. 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.”
