BSA & Galexia Global Coud Computing Scorecard (2016) - Galexia Analytics Release
Indonesia continues to update and reform laws and regulations in the information technology (IT) sector, and the result is not always positive for cloud computing.
Regulations impose significant barriers for cloud service providers, including requirements for providers to register their services with a central authority and rules that force some providers to establish local data centers and hire local staff.
Indonesia’s new copyright law (2014) strengthens copyright protection and enforcement processes. However, several key aspects of the new law await more-detailed regulations before they can be implemented. Copyright law in Indonesia is now closely aligned with international models.
Indonesia has not yet developed effective laws and policies regarding interoperability, free trade, and government procurement.
The government continues to work to increase “meaningful” broadband penetration. The Indonesian Broadband Plan was finalized in December 2013 and implementation began in 2014.
Overall, Indonesia’s rank rose one spot to 20th (from 21st in the 2013 report). Falls in security, free trade and international standards were offset by significant improvements in IT infrastructure.
