* NEW RESEARCH * The impact of data sovereignty on UK cloud service development

Fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) have dominated the ongoing data sovereignty debate concerning the storage of data in accordance with national and international regulation over the last five years.

The recent emergence of the EU US Privacy Shield and Microsoft’s victory over the US Department of Justice appear to have added a little more clarity on where the confidential personal data of UK and EU citizens held by US software and IT services (SITS) providers can be safely stored, or at least provided more transparency over what happens if US authorities request access to it.

In this report TechMarketView cuts through the legal jargon to decipher what that means for SITS suppliers offering cloud and hosting services to UK customers, and chronicles Microsoft’s steady rise to prominence as a serious contender in the cloud services market.
