London, U.K., 4th July 2017 – Amido, a vendor-agnostic, independent technical consultancy specialising in assembling and integrating proven cloud technologies, is the latest company to join a list of prestigious organisations collaborating to enhance cloud technology and services across all industry sectors.
The membership comes at a time where CIOs are experiencing demands from c-suite peers to improve digital offerings in an affordable and timely manner. With successful digital transformation projects dominating all sectors, the challenge still encompasses this question of: ‘how do I upgrade my company’s digital services with minimal disruption and at base cost?’ According to Deloitte’s Global CIO 2016 – 2017 Survey1, almost a third of the 1200 CIOs interviewed felt that they lacked the necessary IT digital skillset, which means that there is still a need to partner with businesses to help educate, support and transform legacy infrastructure with cloud services.
Alan Walsh, CEO of Amido, adds: “We’re seeing a wide variety of businesses approach us to help them access the many advantages of cloud computing and to accelerate their innovation efforts. When deploying our expertise to build solutions for our clients, it is vital that we are fully up to date on the latest advances in the cloud services market. Being part of CIF will enable us to work even more closely with key players in the cloud industry, and CIF’s eLearning schemes will also help us to accelerate our technical expertise. We look forward to working with CIF and its members to drive best practise and transparency in the cloud market.”
Alex Hilton, CEO of The Cloud Industry Forum, concludes: “Amido has a deep understanding of the benefits of cloud and a wide knowledge of where the market is. As a consultancy that helps organisations to tap into those benefits in a way which is directly aligned with their business objectives, Amido has a lot to contribute to our work and to the cloud computing market as a whole.”
