The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) is a not for profit organisation that champions and advocates the adoption and use of online (cloud based) services by businesses. Unlike many traditional industry bodies CIF is constantly evolving and updating its best practise model to reflect the shifting dynamics of what is still a very young industry. Once achieved, accreditation to the Code of Practice, will mean that MarketDeveloper is fully compliant with cloud industry best practice, as identified by CIF.
MarketDeveloper has been a passionate advocate of the values of cloud computing, most notably the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, since its formation in 2009. The highly flexible MD v5.1 solution is fully hosted by MarketDeveloper and boasts constant availability as well as complete platform agnosticism. As a database solution MD is available any time, any place and on any device.
Managing Director Simon Davis commented, “Cloud computing has been a revolution in the IT sector however there is still a lot to be done in ensuring it earns its reputation as a secure, trusted and transparent model. We are fully supportive of CIF’s efforts to inform and educate the end user and are confident MarketDeveloper can help with this.”
