Almost 45 percent of users want European cloud providers for greater data sovereignty
Bernd Bugelnig, CEO of Capgemini in Austria
Vienna (OTS) – The results of Capgemini’s annual IT Trends study show that the importance of data security and data sovereignty influences the respondents’ cloud strategy. In addition, the use of intelligent technologies has increased slightly over the past twelve months. In September and October last year, 144 specialist and IT managers from companies and authorities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part in the study.
The y provide around 28 percent of the cloud-based IT services used by companies and authorities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In contrast, only a good 23 percent are bought from European providers. Almost 45 percent of the study participants who use cloud services from non-European providers want to increase their capacities with European providers in the coming years.
The y justify the relocation primarily with compliance with data protection and the desire to increase data sovereignty. In connection with intelligent systems, too, the sensitivity for data sovereignty has increased slightly: This year, more study participants are in favor of the operation
of intelligent systems to European or company-owned clouds.
In the last 12 months it may have become clear that intelligent systems will not find social acceptance if there is a lack of transparency. Security awareness has also increased due to some spectacular cyber attacks. And last but not least, fears may have grown that less ethical competitors could benefit from economic advantages. In all these areas, legal requirements would be helpful so that all actors are subject to the same restrictions and the trust of the citizens can grow“, explains Bernd Bugelnig, CEO of Capgemini in Austria.
