PORTLAND, Ore. – March 25, 2014 DMTF, the organization bringing the IT industry together to collaborate on the development, validation and promotion of infrastructure management standards, today announced a partnership with China Cloud Computing Promotion and Policy Forum (3CPP).

DMTF and 3CPP plan to work together to promote the adoption of appropriate existing standards and support recognized bodies developing new standards relevant to cloud computing.

“The DMTF and 3CPP share several common concerns within the cloud computing industry. The importance of cooperation between our two organizations will be instrumental in promoting the adoption of cloud-based standards in China,” said He Baohong, chief secretary, 3CPP. “3CPP is looking forward to collaborating with the DMTF and aligning our efforts in the cloud industry.”
