Build A Better Government In The Cloud

European Governments Leverage Commercial Cloud To Digitally Transform

Published June 2019


European governments strive to deliver on promises to provide better, smarter, and more efficient services through digital transformation.

In November 2018, AWS commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate European government plans, priorities, and challenges regarding digital transformation. They found that European governments are highly engaged in modernizing their infrastructure to meet citizen expectations.

Commercial cloud —i.e., hosted commercial solutions, also known as public cloud —will be critical in helping governments manage costs while achieving their goals.
