Over the last five years, the use of cloud computing services has increased rapidly, in German companies. According to a statistic from Bitkom Research in 2018, the acceptance of cloud-computing services is growing.
Cloud-computing brings many advantages for a business. For example, expenses for the internal infrastructure and its administration can be saved. Resource scaling is easier, it can be done when the appropriate capital is available. In general the level of innovation within companies is also increasing, so this can support new technologies and business models. Cloud-computing can also increase data security and data protection, because the big providers must comply with standards and obtain certification through the EU-DSGVO General Data Protection Regulation, which came into force in May 2018. There is even special cloud providers that offer such services, so these are working based on the regulations of the TCDP (Trusted Cloud Data Protection) certification.
