We are already perfectly equipped to meet the needs of this new market, not merely with our Cloud expertise itself, but above all thanks to the Managed Services we offer additionally, for instance the Cloud Compliance Solution ‘SAM2GO’. Moreover, our Cloud growth with Microsoft clearly indicates that Public Cloud solutions are becoming increasingly accepted in our core market of Europe.”
