Observation

Kat Borlongan (director of the French Tech Mission) recently declared: “70% of scaleups in France are B2B. However, only 0.01% of the purchasing budget of large groups goes to start-ups… If we can get this number to change, then we will be able to grow our own gems. The president is vowing 25 unicorns in 2025. This shift of budgets towards startups will give agility to the major groups, an increase in transactions for startups and better chances of exit/takeover, which today are exceptional figures”.

Europe is the only continent not to have ranked an IT company in the FT500 (top 500 companies worldwide in value or revenue) in the last 20 years. The only European software “giant” was and remains SAP followed by Dassault System. The latter not being classified in the FT500.

Twenty years ago, Europe was ahead of 3G and had several leading hardware manufacturers, this is no longer the case (we are lagging behind on 5G, research in Lannion is a shadow of its former self and our manufacturers have all but one disappeared, in a pitiful state).

More than 80% of German companies as well as public institutions run their strategic systems on Google-Microsoft-Amazon-Oracle technologies (the recent example of Deutsche Bank is edifying in this respect);

Para-public bodies in the EU member states are poorly coordinated on the digital issue. BPI France and its European counterparts, for example.

Believing that by choosing the US (or Chinese) IT, one is often making the choice of the lowest bidder is often wrong. Calculations of this kind do not take into account hidden or future costs: cost of dependency, impossibility to oppose future increases in maintenance costs that US suppliers are used to, cost of geopolitical risk, etc..
The supply of European data to extra-continental third parties weakens the continent’s economic and political resilience. To protect them, the GDPR must be respected and enforced and US extra-territorial laws must no longer be imposed on French and European judicial authorities.
GAFAs spent $55 million on lobbying in 2018, doubling their combined spending of $27.4 million in 2016. 238 people were mobilized to lobby for the four companies in the first three months of 2019. 75% of these people have already served in government or U.S. political campaigns.

China and The US have helped platforms expand exponentially through the award of public contracts. Europe must be proactive in this matter

The world’s most powerful companies form an oligopoly, the club of nearly $1 trillion in capitalization between the American GAFAM and Chinese BAHTX
