CCN Launches Best Practices WebVoyagingTM for the Canadian Cloud
The Cloud Best Practices Network (CBPN) announces the launch of new international Cloud Network chapters for the US, UK, India and Israel that will join Canada in defining the first global community of best practices for Cloud Computing.
The goal of the CBPN is to bridge the innovation divide between countries and accelerate the growth of the cloud computing sector by sharing global best practices and promoting world-wide technology innovation. A renowned team of experts from each country is being formed representing an unprecedented global Technology Strategy Board (TSB).
Countries like Canada (now falling to 12th in the Global Innovation Index) have an opportunity to replicate the best successes of governments in the United States and the United Kingdom. The US government saved $12 billion with their Cloud First program. The UK government gave local SME cloud computing providers access to government procurement bids. Without the red tape of laborious government RFP processes huge gains were achieved: government IT costs were reduced, new innovative government services were introduced and significant network efficiencies (including cloud and related WAN deployments across national, regional and municipal governments and agencies). The “first government project” status for a whole ecosystem of companies boosted sales to private sector companies now confidently seeking cloud based computing solutions. A kick start for a whole industry!
Via our CEAP marketplace program international vendors will find it easier to work with local Canadian cloud hosting firms to effectively bid on similarly streamlined government RFPs.
To support global expansion of Canada`s local IT firms, the CCN is pleased to announce the launch of its social media acceleration program, ‘Best practice WebVoyaging™ for the Canadian Cloud‘.
Once becoming a member of the CBPN, cloud industry consultants, vendors and service providers can have their profile boosted through expert materials, company profiles, directory listings, and blog publishing and promotions throughout the CBPN content network with the associated benefits of social media networking and Search Engine Optimization. Our CBPN content network has blossomed to over 4.000 online members and a traffic base of over a million unique hits!
Additionally, the TSB, CBPN’s community of though leaders is pioneering industry-defining best practices:
