A look back at the main messages of the day

A permanent dialogue between sovereignty and innovation

The main messages of the day highlighted the importance of a dynamic dialogue between sovereignty and innovation. Securing France’s data and digital infrastructure remains a priority, requiring a rigorous approach to sovereignty.

However, to remain competitive in the global market, innovation driven by cutting-edge technologies is essential. Thus, it is imperative to advance French and European offers, in particular through partnerships between the public and private sectors, and initiatives such as the demonstrator project.

The gradual strengthening of the French Cloud ecosystem

It is illustrated by the significant growth in the use of national Cloud services: the annual amount of orders sent to French Cloud providers on the market operated by UGAP increased by 70% between 2022 and 2023, and the offers internal interministerial Clouds Pi and Nubo have also seen their capacities increase rapidly. The pooling of purchasing resources and the sharing of good practices are also essential elements to optimize the use of available resources and guarantee efficiency in the implementation of projects.

A profound and organizational transformation

The transition to a Cloud-oriented production chain involves an in-depth review of processes, teams and tools. This transformation requires cultural change, close collaboration between teams and a desire for change at all levels of public entities.

The acceleration of digital transformation driven by the Cloud is necessary in order to meet business needs with agility and speed.

Community growth and satisfaction

This space makes it possible to extend the discussions initiated during the Cloud day, to share the materials projected during the event and more broadly news and information on the Cloud in the public sphere.
