NAB joins cloud computing alliance
Nov 3 2010, 15:53 PM
National Australia Bank (NAB) has signed up to a global cloud computing initiative that features some of the biggest corporations in the world.
It is now part of the Open Data Center Alliance (OCDA), a group that also includes BMW, JPMorgan Chase, Shell and Marriott International.
The aim of the OCDA is to help shape best practices and standards in the cloud computing industry so businesses can maximise the value they get from the technology, reports Delimiter.
According to a statement from NAB, the bank already is looking to build on its "keen interest" in the cloud.
"We see some opportunities and already make use of some cloud services. It's also fair to say that cloud is only at the beginning of its journey … the purported benefits are realisable," said the company.
NAB has almost 11 million customers based across the world and employs more than 38,000 workers across its various operations.
