Implementation of the cloud strategy

Chancellery – Digital Transformation and ICT Steering Sector, Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication

Key facts

Cloud computing is a key element of the Federal Administration’s digital transformation. It should allow it to carry out innovative projects more rapidly, in a more agile manner and at lower cost. With this in mind, in 2020 the Federal Council adopted a cloud computing strategy. This sets out the possible details for service provision, specifically the Confederation’s internal service providers’ private clouds, external suppliers’ external clouds and combined (hybrid) clouds. In particular, it underscores the new option of public clouds. Finally, it proposes an organisational model which describes the roles of the different stakeholders as regards governance, intermediaries (cloud service broker, CSB) and cloud operation. The Federal Chancellery’s Digital Transformation and ICT Steering Sector (DTI) is responsible for implementing this strategy.
