Tietoevry joins the Gaia-X association to enhance digital sovereignty in Europe
10 February 2022
Tietoevry has become a member of Gaia-X, a European initiative aimed at creating a unified ecosystem of cloud and data services governed by European data laws. The goal is to enhance digital sovereignty, build trust, and create a solid foundation for the data economy to drive growth, competitiveness, and innovation.
“Our membership in Gaia-X brings us great opportunities to collaborate with representatives from business, politics, academics and science from Europe and around the world,” says Alberto Valero, Head of Technology & Growth, Tietoevry Connect. “Gaia-X is an open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem where data and services can be made available, collated and shared in an environment of trust.”
“The aim is to exchange data in a secure and controlled way, such that companies and citizens can retain control over their data and decide where it is stored. Together we are making a strong impact for our society, organisations, and citizens in the Nordics,” says Valero.
Gaia-X is a broad open-source community with a data infrastructure ecosystem that aims to facilitate the highest standards of data sovereignty. The software federation system can connect several cloud-service providers and data owners together to ensure data exchange in a trusted environment and boost the creation of new common data spaces for the digital economy.
Gaia-X, established in June 2021, is a digital ecosystem self-regulated by its members. The initiative creates an environment where data can be shared and stored under the control of data owners and users with respected rules that make unprecedented opportunities for innovative, data-driven business models and scalable growth.
