Ingram signs up to Cloud Industry Forum

Ingram Micro has become the latest to sign up to the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) as it looks to underline its commitment to the emerging technology.

The distributor has been instrumental in driving the Channel Transformation Alliance, which aims at giving resellers practical support in making a cloud transition, and is establishing its own brand in the market.

Matt Sanderson, UK managing director at Ingram Micro, said that CIF has been leading the charge in trying to establish a code of practice for cloud providers and it wanted to get behind its activities.

"Its code of practice is a ground breaking initiative offering end users the transparency and security they need in taking the decision to migrate to the cloud," he said.

In its position as a distributor Ingram will play an educational role increasing awareness about the cloud and sharing the aims of CIF with resellers.

"There is a clear opportunity in the market for trusted cloud brokers, and I have no doubt that Ingram Micro will be an active participant in championing cloud services and to that end we look forward to working with them to increase awareness among end users of trusted cloud services in turn to raise confidence in choice and use," said CIF chairman Andy Burton.
