560 billion euros. That is the estimated turnover that must be generated by the cloud computing (cloud computing) by 2030, at European stage. However the cloud can also be a significant pillar of France’s political and digital sovereignty and strategic autonomy.
As a way to meet the challenges when it comes to financial and technological sovereignty and information safety, the Authorities launched, on Could 17, 2021, a nationwide technique for the cloud. That is primarily based on three pillars:
- the SecNumCloud visa which ensures a excessive stage of safety for notably delicate information,
- the “cloud on the Middle” doctrine as a precedence lever for the digital transformation of administrations,
- the cloud acceleration technique, as a part of France 2030, the target of which is to assist and develop French technological tasks.
A primary constructive evaluation
the reinforcement of the SecNumCloud visa is already successful amongst suppliers with seven certified bids, carried by Cloud Temple, OVHCloud, Oodrive, Outscale and Worldline. Because of this, the administrations have doubled their quantity of contracts awarded with SecNumCloud presents.
As well as, as a part of the cloud acceleration technique deliberate in France 2030, round twenty revolutionary tasks with excessive added worth have already been financed for 380 million euros.
5 new measures
To proceed creating the technique initiated by the Authorities, 5 new measures have been introduced on 12 September.
Help in acquiring the SecNumCloud visa for SMEs
L’acquiring the SecNumCloud visa constitutes, for some cloud gamers, a protracted, complicated and expensive course of, and subsequently a brake that the Authorities intends to elevate.
With this in thoughts, the ANSSI (Nationwide Company for the Safety of Data Programs) will implement a qualification assist systemof two.5 million euros, which will probably be aimed toward younger shoots (start-ups) and SMEs which provide providers in PaaS / SaaS (platform as a service / software program as a service) that may contribute to the modernization and resilience of firms and administrations.
Higher assist the digital transformation of administrations
As a way to strengthen the safety of financial actors, the Authorities will perform a clarification of the notion of notably delicate information. Private and non-private consumers will thus be higher oriented in direction of the use or not of SecNumCloud licensed presents.
As well as, to assist administrations of their migration to the cloud and speed up this crucial transformation, a assist mission will probably be launched and steered by the Interministerial Digital Division.
An bold regulatory framework at European Union stage
The Authorities wish to see the institution of a harmonized European cyber safety certification scheme for cloud providers.
Moreover, the draft information regulation DataAct »led by the European Commissioner Thierry Breton, should specifically result in the implementation of provisions which is able to make it potential to rebalance the cloud market right now largely dominated by a trio of non-European gamers.
The necessity for the European Fee to validate as quickly as potential the Vital Undertaking of Frequent European Curiosity (IPCEI) cloud
Almost 60 tasks involving 180 European firms (together with Amadeus, Atos, Orange and OVHCloud in France) from twelve Member States have joined forces to invent the following technology of cloud providers andEdge Computing (community edge computing). They’ve been working for almost two years on the event of this main European venture, the whole funding envelope of which is estimated at 5 billion euros round public/non-public co-financing.
The IPCEI cloud represents a bold coverage of commercial assist for innovation within the cloud and helps obtain the technological sovereignty and the achievement of Europe’s digital and ecological transition.
Enhancing the dialogue between the State and the ecosystem because of a “trusted digital” sector strategic committee
As a way to meet the demand of trusted digital gamers, a brand new “trusted digital” Sector Strategic Committee (CSF) have to be created. This widespread discussion board for exchanges with the State will encourage cooperation and contribute to the emergence of a aggressive French supply within the coming years.
Michel Paulin, Managing Director of OVHCloud, is chargeable for presenting to the ministers, inside six months, a proposal on the composition, governance and targets of this new CSF, guaranteeing good coordination with the prevailing CSFs (safety industries and Trade of the longer term specifically).
