NEXUS AB first Scottish company to be certified to Cloud

Thursday, February 23, 2012      
 
  • An Aberdeen oil and gas risk mitigation company is the first in Scotland to be certified to the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) Code of Practice.

The code of practice, established by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), is designed to promote trust, security, transparency and best practice for online service providers.

NexusAB is the first Scottish company to be formally recognised as certified with the Cloud Industry Forum Code of Practice.

The company has global experience of integrating the design, equipment integrity and assurance engineering from planning to close-out in a well programme to significantly reduce safety and operational risks.

NexusAB specialises in developing wells programmes which increase non-productive time ratios and reduce equipment failure through the use of its externally hosted software tools. These 'software as a service' (SaaS) products provide technical audits and supply chain management and are accessible by web browser.

Francis Kiernan, managing director of Nexus AB Limited, said: 'We have long recognised the importance that the cloud can make in the delivery of IT in terms of reduced costs, enhanced operational availability and on-demand scalability. It was clear to us that attaining certification would not only give our customers the confidence in our cloud offering, but give us the edge in a highly competitive market.

'Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) Code of Practice Certification allows NexusAB Ltd to present its capabilities to the market with the added credential of a certification mark that assists the end users in making an informed decision regarding the provision of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.'

Andy Burton, chairman for the Cloud Industry Forum, said: 'It is a great testimony to the professional commitment of these companies to operate in a transparent and accountable manner, measuring themselves against an Industry Code of Practice that enables potential customers to make rational and informed decisions on their selection of service providers.

'I am delighted to see this first wave of cloud service providers attain certification with many more already following in their footsteps. It is important that serious cloud vendors are able to demonstrate to their customers the independent validation of their commitment to a quality cloud experience.'
