They are devoted to diversity in IT procurement
We propose a simple commitment: “in order to enable European technological innovation and to develop true digital diversity both in terms of infrastructure and software platforms, I commit, as an organization or manager, to invest more than 50% of any new IT budget (software, service, cloud and telecom perimeter) for investment or operation with French and European players, at the end of current commitments and within 3 years at the latest”.
THEY ARE COMMITTED
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”.
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.
China and The US have helped platforms expand exponentially through the award of public contracts. Europe must be proactive in this matter
