BASDA launches cloud group

BASDA to create a cloud computing handbook for end users and will host a summit later this year

The Business Application Software Developers Association has created a
‘cloud’ special interest group to address the growing interest in the online
software model in the business software industry.

The cloud’s discussion group will draw together ideas on a particular subject
to create principles and raise its profile.

The group hopes to address the concerns of users in the accountancy and
business industry and to help understand the potential benefits and limitations
of online based applications.

BASDA hopes to create a platform to allow developers and end users to discuss
‘cloud’s’ future and hopes to produce a cloud computing handbook at a later
date.

Matt Holmes the MD of Liquid Accounts, the accountancy software providers,
was voted chair of the group and David Turner, group marketing director for
Coda, the financial IT company, was voted deputy chair.

Jairo Rojas, BASDA director general, said: ‘We are delighted with the
response from so many companies wanting to join forces with BASDA on this
issue.’

‘BASDA recognises the need to kick-start the industry debate on such an
important new concept as Cloud Computing.’

BASDA is to hold a business cloud 9 summit in December in London.
