Sovereign Cloud Platform for the German Public Sector
Partnership between SAP and Arvato Systems
The comprehensive digitization of the public sector in Germany is one of the German government's most important projects. The prerequisite for this is the creation of a high-performance cloud infrastructure that acts as the technological foundation of a digital administration at both the federal and state levels.
To achieve this goal, Arvato Systems wants to work with SAP to provide a sovereign cloud platform for Germany's public sector. We will be responsible for the technical operation of the cloud and will contribute our expertise in cloud transformation and the operation of cloud platforms. SAP will contribute its cloud-based solutions as well as its extensive experience in the area of specialist procedures in the public sector. In doing so, we are cooperating closely with another of our strategic partners - Microsoft. In this way, we will ensure that our offering based on the Azure platform will serve the current and future requirements of public administration in the sense of a multi-service platform.
Advantages of the Sovereign Cloud Platform
Sovereign Cloud Platform on the Technical, Operational and Legal Side
The new cloud offering from Arvato Systems and SAP will be technically, operationally, and legally sovereign, following the requirements of German legislation. All public sector customer data for this cloud platform will remain in Germany.
We are delighted about expanding the partnership and the joint plans with SAP. At Arvato Systems, we have supported large infrastructure projects for years, including public administration, and understand their unique requirements.
