"The European Cloud Initiative launched by the European Commission in April 2016 is an important step on the way to Europe achieving global leadership in the digital economy. But like all best laid plans, the key will be how it is implemented. A focus on future economic growth is needed to build a competitive cloud industry in Europe. For providers and users, particularly SMEs, the multitude of legal frameworks, language barriers and the lack of digital skills have contributed to large disparities in the level of cloud adoption across the EU. This in turn will reduce the opportunity to take advantage of new data driven innovations, particularly in services that try to take advantage of big data and connected devices, such as connected cars. The European Cloud Initiative can light the way in tackling these issues."
