IT market the disunity among professionals in the cloud
In the UK, the Cloud Industry Forum Alliance.Aux Cloud does not like the U.S. Open Cloud Initiative re-emerge after secession with the Open Cloud Manifesto. The cloud takes the shape of some power struggle in a market that is worth gold. And conflicts of interest may burst.
Thus, in early July, UK eWeek reported a polemic against the backdrop of the launch of Cloud Alliance in the UK. It includes a range of cloud solutions providers for SMEs. But the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has not found commercial applauded this initiative.
This second organization “cloud pro” instead favors a market approach designed to bring out the standards. The CIF believes that the generic name “Cloud Alliance” is misleading, what makes this business initiative indecent.
As Director of Business Development at the service provider cloud named Star (and instigator of the Cloud Alliance), Grant Tanner is disappointed by the reaction of Cloud Industry Forum. “The CIF should welcome this initiative CA. We do not intend to erect a standardization committee. We try to bring value to our customers by providing differentiators. ”
The Cloud Alliance has never sought to conceal his commercial. “In any case, it is out of an alliance with the CIF. We just want our customers to deliver products and services cloud in a different way, “says the spokesman of the Board.
