2017 an amazing year for Cloud Plus as business awards pile up
Cloud Plus featured in six prestigious awards lists for 2017, something we’re celebrating across our offices in Brisbane, Manila and Prague.
Our CEO Jules Rumsey, who founded Cloud Plus in 2010, puts our success down to always being alert to new trends in an era of rapid-changing technology. On top of that, our commitment to four key principles:
1 – we focus solely on solution sales;
2 – we actively develop our solution suite through heavy R&D investment every year;
3 – we are 100% Channel Focused;
4 – we are 100% Committed to looking after the needs of our partners and clients.
“It’s important to look at trends that are forming overseas as well as in Australia,” he says. “Different markets develop and adapt technology at different rates and in different ways.”
It’s an approach that has led to Cloud Plus coming up with new products to stay ahead of our rivals in what is a super-competitive industry. And, of course, it’s been a big factor leading to us being awarded with the following.
Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2017

Goals for the future
“We’re delighted to have been recognised for our industry-leading cloud solutions and the growth they are delivering by these distinguished awards panels,” says Jules Rumsey. “Winning so many awards, along with opening our European office in Prague, will make 2017 a truly memorable year to look back on.
“But although we’re celebrating all these wins right now, it doesn’t mean we’re going to sit on our laurels. We’re already planning for the future. – we have a lot in the pipeline and are working hard on processes, IT platforms and skills development towards ensuring that we can scale effectively with the growth we are seeing.”
