Many IT leaders are evaluating only the big 3 providers when thinking about their companies Cloud strategy. Developers equally chose the big 3, because it’s convenient - they don’t have to wait, can start for free and it works.
With the Cloud blueprint development underway in Amsterdam and soon other locations, we can make it equally convenient to chose regional. Next we need to make the case for why choosing regional cloud providers is the more sustainable choice - for business, for the environment and from an economic perspective.
In addition there is many steps that the IT community can take to prepare and modernize their applications for more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly operation. This means shifting to either virtualized or containerized environments. With this shift and by loosing the service-level agreements they enable better, more sustainable infrastructure.
In this steering group we are developing the communication campaign, addressing the development community as well as the IT leadership community on their role in a sustainable digital economy and how their choices can lead to a better future.
