“ In our current environment , the sovereignty of one ’ s supply chain and IT has become truly strategic ,” said Marc Reinhardt , Head of Public Sector at Capgemini . “ For those organizations currently still reluctant to leverage the obvious benefits of the cloud , sovereignty is a way to get there .
“ As a result , it is gaining importance across sectors and regions , to enable organizations to control and protect their data to an even greater extent – for the public sector , with emphasis on trust , transparency , choice and portability . And it is not a surprise that government and public sector bodies are among the leaders in pursuing or considering a sovereign cloud in their organizations .
“ In designing their cloud strategies , organizations should not just focus on compliance requirements , but also have a true ‘ enterprise view ’ of their data . In so doing , they will fully reap the benefits from sovereign cloud , including trust , collaboration and innovation for even the most sensitive of data areas , and build a competitive advantage or better service for their constituents .” p
