South Africa has risen in the global ranking in terms of the strength of its cloud computing policies.
This is according to a new study by The Software Alliance (also known as the BSA), which ranked SA 14th out of 24 leading IT economies in its 2016 BSA Global Cloud Computing Scorecard.
SA was the biggest improver in overall ranking, moving up six places from 20th place in 2013 – the last time the BSA published its rankings. The alliance says this is a sign the legal and regulatory environment for cloud computing in the country is encouraging cloud innovation.
