Quote from Steve Leach, Head of Service, Cloud Gateway.

“We have been working with the IFDC for several months now and we are very pleased to be able to formalize the partnership. There is a great fit between Cloud Gateway and the IFDC which is based around innovation. We need a flexible approach which enables us to bring new and innovative solutions to the market quickly and securely. VeriSM™ provides us with an approach which helps us to combine ITIL, Agile, DevOps and other techniques in a controlled way in order to meet these demands. Implementing a support model based on VeriSM™  has enabled us to deliver exactly what customers require.”

Sigrid Jansen, Manager IFDC: “I am thrilled to be able to welcome Cloud Gateway as an IFDC partner. The VeriSM™ approach has been developed to help end-user organizations achieve their desired business outcomes, and so it is great to have Cloud Gateway on board as an example of an early adopter which has done just that. With anything new, sometimes you need to take a leap of faith. The recent success of Cloud Gateway is proof of what can be achieved if you dare to lead the way and try a new approach.”

It provides guidance on the organizational and people aspects of digital transformation, as well as introducing a flexible model to help organizations integrate various management practices and emerging technologies and govern them under one model.
