About the Cloud Industry Forum
The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) is a membership led industry body that champions
and advocates the adoption and use of Cloud-based services by business.
We commission in depth research to establish Cloud best practice, lobbying and
educating on all matters that will aid adoption of credible Cloud services.
We manage a certifiable Cloud Service Provider (CSP) Code of Practice (COP) that
provides transparency of Cloud services to enable users to assure clarity and
confidence in their choice of provider.
We offer a Professional Membership Programme for individuals and corporate
companies delivering structured resources, e-learning and personal accreditation

Digital Transformation is about business change and how businesses can reorientate
