From there, the two brought together the founding board of IT leaders from the likes of Bank of America, Fidelity Investments, JPMorgan Chase, UBS, and Gap Inc. Managed by Nick and Ernest, the board worked together to create the first ONUG event, held on February 13, 2013 at the Fidelity Auditorium in Boston, Massachusetts.
Today the ONUG Board has grown to include Bank of America, BNY Mellon, Cigna, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, FedEx, Fidelity, Gap Inc., GE, Intuit, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Pfizer, TD Ameritrade, UBS, Yahoo, and The Lippis Report. ONUG prides itself on functioning as the collective voice of the enterprise IT community. Throughout the year, ONUG organizes Working Group Initiatives, bringing together IT executives, academics, researchers, government representatives, vendors, and cloud/service providers to contribute to the advancement of products and services required for an open cloud-based software-defined market to develop at scale.
