Bitkom sees a lot of support for the European cloud project in the results of a current survey on Gaia-X services. A total of 46 percent of all 604 companies surveyed with 20 or more employees said they were planning or considering the use of Gaia-X services. On the other hand, 43 percent stated that they would not consider using Gaia-X. 11 percent had not given any thought to this at the time of the survey. According to the survey, legal certainty in data protection, high standards for IT security and the sovereign and trusting exchange of data speak in favor of using Gaia-X.
With the big ones yay, with the small ones ney
The difference in enthusiasm between large and small companies is striking. So far, only 12 percent of companies with 20 to 99 employees are planning to use Gaia-X, compared to 18 percent of companies with 100 to 499 employees. In contrast, 32 percent of companies with 500 or more employees are planning a specific assignment. Regardless of the size of the company, the potential interest ranges between 32 and 37 percent. For the majority of small businesses surveyed, Gaia-X is not an issue (46 percent).
This is where cloud services are created for you
European companies currently seem to be lagging behind their international competitors in terms of digitization, with the German administration in particular lagging behind. Bitkom President Achim Berg sees the added value of the Gaia-X projects as crucial for the success of the cloud. If their services prevail on the market, Gaia-X could “make a decisive contribution to increasing resilience, data sovereignty and digital sovereignty in the EU,” says Berg. The first Gaia-X based products are expected to hit the market in 2022.
