The Software Alliance today released its 2018 Global Cloud Computing Scorecard, a flagship study that assesses cloud computing policies around the globe.

Thailand ranks 19th out of 24 leading IT economies, compared to its ranking of 21st in 2016, indicating that the legal and regulatory environment for cloud computing in Thailand is improving, although significant gaps remain.

The 2018 BSA Global Cloud Computing Scorecard – the newest version of the only report to rank countries’ preparedness for the adoption and growth of cloud computing services – features an updated methodology that better reflects the policies that have helped cloud computing’s exponential growth over the past five years, putting additional emphasis on countries’ privacy and cybersecurity laws and broadband infrastructure.

“The Scorecard is a tool that can help countries constructively self-evaluate their policies and determine next steps to increase adoption of cloud computing,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance.

“Cloud computing allows anyone to access technology previously available only to large organizations, paving the way for increased connectivity and innovation. Countries that embrace the free flow of data, implement cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions, protect intellectual property, and establish IT infrastructure will continue to reap the benefits of cloud computing for businesses and citizens alike.”

In 2018, most countries continue to make improvements, but some markets are falling further behind.

Germany scored the highest on the Scorecard – due to its national cybersecurity policies and promotion of free trade – followed closely by Japan and the United States.

Bringing up the rear are a small group of nations that have failed to embrace the international approach: Russia, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

By examining the legal and regulatory framework of 24 countries, the Scorecard aims to provide a platform for discussion between policymakers and cloud service providers. This dialogue can help develop an internationally harmonized regime of laws and regulations that facilitate cloud computing.
