7.3.2023 / Espoo

This is the event for those who want to know everything about digital sovereignty and the future of Clouds!

Time: Tuesday 7th March at 14.00 with mingling until approx. 19.00.

Location: Tietoevry Office - Espoo, Keilalahdentie 2-4, 02101 Espoo

What is really the hype around digital sovereignty and cloud sovereignty?
Why is it so important, and what is Finland's role in driving this?

Cloud services are the engine of the growing data economy, but how do you choose the right services? Today, as much as 92 percent of all data is processed outside the EU, and reports show that preparedness among IT managers in Finnish businesses is alarmingly low.

We have brought together high-profile speakers, experts, and business leaders to clarify the concept, debate, and inform. Together with our partners; Google Cloud, VMware and TBWA, we invite you to an inspiring and interactive afternoon, where you will find out about everything from global trends, the latest from the EU Commission's corridors of power in Brussels, new innovations of the cloud linked to sovereignty and secure digital infrastructure as well as how to take the next step in your cloud journey.

The evening ends with a pleasant mingling with food, drink and music.
