Cloud Industry Forum

The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) is a membership IT trade body established to promote the trust and transparency of cloud based software and services.  

Under the direction of our members CIF has three main priorities:

  • Discuss, engage and partner within the cloud supplier community to ensure thought leadership and market direction.  
  • To drive a common and public level of transparency about the capability and substance of Cloud Service Providers through a process of self-certification to an EU recognised Code of Practice.
  • Acknowledging the digital skills gap, CIF has built a Professional Membership program enabling IT professionals to develop best practice of cloud adoption.
