No digitalization without data exchange

NetApp and Secure Data Space provide resellers with a GDPR-compliant solution

At the NetApp Partner Executive Forum, from the 12th – 14th June 2017, the most important meeting of the NetApp partners in EMEA, the “Who is who” of the IT reseller landscape met in great numbers. Just as outstanding as the participants was the venue itself this year: Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. The city not only rushes ahead to be one of the top cities in the field of technology and innovation but is also the birthplace of global software greats like Skype.

Fallowing the motto “Data is the business” the focus for resellers and distributors for three days was on different areas of data and digitization. Especially data exchange raised questions about the intelligent reconcilability of data protection, compliance and communication habits.

NetApp and Secure Data Space offer a collective answers to these questions and want to combine the best of two worlds with this partnership.

This creates a highly professional solution for communication and collaboration on a flexible infrastructure that provides data securely at the desired location.

“At the Partner Executive Forum NetApp meets with the top European partners each year to present the strategy, direction and next steps. The focus is on data services. I am very pleased to introduce SSP Europe as an innovation partner this year. The joint and integrated solution for mobile, secure and auditable data on any end device was well received and once again offers our partners more solutions around the topic Data Services.” Explained Peter Wüst, Senior Director Emerging Solutions and Innovation Group EMEA. “Data is the new currency of the digital age.” Adds Alexander Zeyss, CFO of Secure Data Space. “Without data exchange, there is no digitization.
