January #CloudInfluence UK and Cloud Bursters League Tables

Now, having global statistics is all well and good, but let’s be honest, we’re all interested in the UK specific data. So here it is. The top 10 UK #CloudInfluence individuals and the top 7 rising stars #CloudInfluence individuals, those who featured in the charts with no prior presence.

As far as the UK contingent go, the top ten is headed by Simon Porter from IBM, who is not only a regular blog contributor to Compare the Cloud, but must also be one of the most prolific executives on social media, having posted over 100,000 tweets. In 8th, nestled among the various CEOs listed, is Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General meaning that his boss David Cameron, the Prime Minister, fell outside the top ten in 11th.
