Cloud services are the backbone supporting 21st-century innovation. Everything from the security of networks and personal computers, to AI, and autonomous driving rely on cloud services.
But the Swedish public sector risks falling behind when it comes to digitalization and reaping the benefits of AI and automation because of misconceptions about the CLOUD Act. As a consequence, there are delays in critical public procurement projects that impact healthcare initiatives, transportation, and more.
Leveraging cutting edge technology is critical to improve healthcare, foster Industry 4.0, deliver smart city solutions and more. But what will happen to the digitalization of Sweden's public sector if a misinterpretation of the U.S. CLOUD Act forces customers to abandon these technologies?
This seminar will examine the potential of innovative cloud services for the public sector and how misinterpretations of the CLOUD Act are challenging the ability of the public sector to capitalize fully on the opportunities afforded by digitalization. The discussion will highlight the importance of dispelling the myths and misunderstandings around the CLOUD Act that are limiting the use of innovative technology and slowing down delivery on ambitious digitalization plans in Sweden.
Join us to learn more about this critical issue and to explore potential paths forward.
