Europe signifies communication tech leadership with a number of companies involved. 27 companies have joined European Alliance for Industrial Data, Edge, and Cloud to strengthen European leadership in the data economy. Nokia is on top of the list of companies that are ready to create a digital Europe.

Europe has a proud history of communications tech leadership. I want to continue, so Nokia has joined 26 other companies in sharing a roadmap for #Cloud and #Edge solutions. This #EUCloudAlliance is big news for a truly #DigitalEU

— Pekka Lundmark, President and CEO, Nokia (@PekkaLundmark) May 10, 2021

Europe, with a concrete plan for development, has defined some of the focus areas. It includes trustworthy data exchange, climate-neutrality, cybersecurity, and interoperability. There are also plans to renew and work on expanding the infrastructure. Companies might witness increased density of edge and cloud facilities across the continent, backed by network and interconnectivity services that give rise to innovate use cases.

The low carbon supply and trustworthy edge and cloud infrastructure and services will be stimulated to handle the industry-specific needs of Europe.

Today CEOs of 27 companies shared their industrial technology roadmap for next generation #Cloud and #Edge offerings.

I welcome their commitment to move forward in the European Alliance for Industrial Data, Edge and Cloud based on our shared vision, needs and requirements.

The target enlists deployment of about 10,000 climate-neutral, highly secure edge nodes. Secondly, up to 75% of European businesses should adopt advanced cloud services for improved results and promised productivity.
