In the meantime, all ODCA materials – including the Cloud Maturity Model package – can be accessed via the Advanced Search page of our website.

Underwriter members: IT and Solution Provider Industry Leaders ready to guide future Cloud adoption

Underwriter members provide the top-level direction and vision for the ODCA. In addition to all the benefits of the Enterprise IT or Solution Provider member levels, Underwriters guide the ODCA and provide a strong financial foundation for the organization’s ongoing impact on Cloud adoption. A key part of establishing and maintaining an Underwriter’s impact is each Underwriter member’s selection of one person to join the ODCA Board of Directors.

ODCA’s many content channels — industry conferences, the “Above the Clouds” podcast, ongoing video series, webinars, and more — are directed and driven in large part by the thoughts and vision of our Underwriters.

The annual membership fee for an ODCA Underwriter is US$30,000 and this level of membership is offered by invitation only. Interested? Email to contact@opendatacenteralliance.org and we’ll get right back to you.
