Outsourcery given cloud code of practice...

APM Group, the Cloud Industry Forum's (CIF) independent certification partner, has announced that Outsourcery, a leading provider of cloud-based IT and business communications solutions, has been handed the certification in accordance with the CIF's official Code of Practice for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).

The CIF Code of Practice is a credible tool that allows high-achieving companies to show that they are capable of meeting specialist requirement, such as transparency and assurance to end users seeking to migrate to the cloud.

Outsourcery, which was founded in 2007, has managed to build itself a reputation for being one of the UK's leading providers of cloud-based IT business communications solutions.

It is also known for cloud services to customers of all sizes throughout the country, operating out of three offices.

Piers Linney, co-chief executive officer of Outsourcery and member of the CIF Code of Governance Board, said: “As one of CIF’s founding members, and having been involved with the initial consultation process for the Code of Practice itself, it’s something that we have been fully committed to from day one."

He added that one of the most  crucial parts of the CIF Code of Practice is trust, as there were no solid set of standards currently available in the market.

This means that many end-users do not have much of a way of measuring up to any sort of benchmark, making the the code all the more important in allowing cloud users to access all of the information needed in order to make an informed choice about their provider.

Richard Pharro, chief executive officer of APM Group, added: “Organisations seeking to use cloud services need a straightforward way to qualify potential suppliers that will accurately define the services offered and standards of operations and security."

He continued by stating that because Outsourcery was such a well-respected and recognised name within the industry, it represented a real coup for the Code of Practice, serving as a great example of the industry as a whole.
