Total Trust: Digital Sovereignty's Vital Linchpin


Rahiel Nasir

These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Boston and Santa Clara in March 2023.

Economic and geopolitical turmoil continues to impact organizations globally. Digital sovereignty can provide the extra armor needed to boost resilience and security, not only for businesses but also at a national level to ensure the continued operations of critical infrastructure and systems. But without one crucial ingredient, the entire digital sovereignty platform crumbles: trust. Trust is the number 1 attribute that organizations seek in partners and providers for digital sovereignty. This presents multiple challenges for vendors offering sovereign solutions. Not only must they ensure they deliver all of their services and infrastructure with the utmost transparency but they must also demonstrate that their entire ecosystem of partners can do likewise. And this must be an ongoing process that takes place over the long term and across various markets and jurisdictions where rules and regulations continue to evolve. Digital sovereignty therefore adds greater complexity to already complex multicloud and hybrid environments. But the pay-off can be worth it. Once successfully implemented, many organizations believe digital sovereignty enhances customer, government, and stakeholder trust in their operations and businesses and can therefore open access to new global markets. Trust begets trust.
