27 CEOs from European Companies presented a report to Commissioner Thierry Breton, publishing a roadmap outlining technological priorities for investment needed to strengthen Europe’s leadership in cloud and edge technologies.
The following companies worked together on the European industrial technology roadmap for the next generation cloud-edge offering:
3DS Outscale, Airbus, Amadeus, Aruba, Atos, Capgemini, CloudFerro, DE-CIX, Deutsche Telekom, Ericsson, German Edge Cloud, GIGAS, Indra, IONOS, IRIDEOS, Leaseweb Global, Magic Cloud, Nabiax, Nokia, Orange, OVHcloud, Retelit, SAP, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Telefonica, Telecom Italia.
The roadmap lays out priority areas for EU joint investments efforts by 2025. The investment strategies aim to a highly secure, low carbon, resource-efficient, and interoperable cloud and edge ecosystem.
The document suggests that the EU joint investments efforts should revolve around three pillars:
- Becoming the leader in domains that will shape European cloud and edge offerings on the global market, focusing on climate-neutrality, cybersecurity, trustworthy data exchange, and interoperability.
- Renewing and expanding infrastructure foundations across Europe, including an increased density of edge and cloud facilities across the continent, backed by network and interconnectivity services that will enable innovative use cases at scale.
- Enabling sovereign and sector-specific services to end-users, providing businesses with trusted options that match global standards in terms of price and resilience.
