BSA & Galexia Global Coud Computing Scorecard (2018) - 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.
Copyright law in Indonesia is now mostly aligned with international models. However, several key aspects of the new law await more-detailed regulations before they can be implemented. In addition, improvements could be made in the areas of enforcement and safe harbor protection for intermediaries.
A gap in Indonesian regulatory environment exists in the areas of interoperability, free trade, and government procurement, negatively affecting cloud computing.
The Indonesian Broadband Plan was finalized in December 2013 and implementation began in 2014 with the objective to increase “meaningful” broadband penetration. However, information on implementation of the plan is limited.
Overall, Indonesia fell three places in the Scorecard rankings (from 20th to 23rd), as the country’s rank was overtaken by others.
