Galexia Global Cloud Computing Readiness Scorecard (2016) Micro-site » - Access the 2016 Scorecard, Dashboard and 24 country report, as well as analytics and graphs showing transition and trends in overall scores across themes and 24 countries (from 2012 to 2016)

In April 2016 the a major update to our cloud readiness research series was released - The 2016 BSA Global Cloud Computing Readiness Scorecard (a joint research effort between BSA | The Software Alliance and Galexia) ranks the cloud computing readiness of 24 countries that account for 80 percent of the world’s IT markets. Each country is graded on its strengths and weaknesses in seven key policy areas. Previous reports were released in 2012 and 2013 and this is a major update.

Our micro-site of the 2016 Cloud Scorecard reflects the final and official version as published on the BSA | Software Alliance Scorecard micro-site - with additional embedded analytics and visualisations from Galexia. The release of the 3rd in this series of ground breaking reports is a great time to take stock and look at what we think are the fascinating and significant trends and patterns of global improvements (and backward steps) over the past 4 years (from 2012 to 2016). We have included graphs, analysis and data not previously published.

Summary of Scores and Ranks for 2016

The 2016 BSA Global Cloud Computing Scorecard ranks the cloud computing readiness of 24 countries that account for 80 percent of the world’s IT markets. Each country is graded on its strengths and weaknesses in seven key policy areas.

This year’s results reveal that almost all countries have made healthy improvements in their policy environments since the release of BSA’s previous Scorecard in 2013. But the stratification between high-, middle- and lower-achieving country groups has widened, with the middle-ranking countries stagnating even as the high achievers continue to refine their policy environments.
