Deutsche CIO to lead cloud alliance

27 May 2010  |  11258 views  |  0 telecoms1

Sean Kelley, global CIO for Deutsche Asset Management has been elected chairman of the Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council, an alliance set up by industry association TM Forum to promote uptake of cloud services in the global enterprise and business-to-business market.

The Council has been set up to promote the development of common industry standards for cloud services in the enterprise market in a collaborative effort to reduce buyer risk and resistance.

Other members include Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Alcatel-Lucent, Amdocs, AT&T, BT, CA, Cisco, EMC, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Nokia Siemens Networks, Telecom Italia and Telstra.

Kelley's appointment demonstrates solid commitment by one of the world's leading banks to the take-up of cloud technology. Late last month, Deutsche Bank was named alongside Bank of America as part of a CBA-led tech buyer's alliance designed to push down prices charged by tech industry heavyweights and encourage take-up of shared applications through the cloud.

Says Kelley of his new role: "The ECLC allows Deutsche Bank to actively participate in removing the risks associated with cloud services through industry standards that create an open and exciting market. I am extremely pleased to be part of the TM Forum's Cloud Services Initiative and the ECLC; an industry group that listens to enterprise and assists the entire eco-system to reap the enormous business benefits of Cloud Services."
