According to McKinsey's analysis, the widespread adoption of cloud technology by Polish companies and public institutions could generate value equivalent to 4% of Poland’s annual GDP by 2030, or €27 billion. Of this, 82% is expected to come from new business and innovative digitization that cloud architecture has unlocked or accelerated. The remaining 18% is likely to come from direct gains in regular business, including IT cost reduction, less downtime, and business automation.
Poland has a solid technological infrastructure to support cloud transformation and a growing digital economy that can directly benefit from it. To accelerate cloud adoption in Poland:
Policymakers should commit to cloud adoption - they can facilitate cloud adoption and lead by example in public-sector institutions.
Organizations cannot ignore the opportunity offered by cloud transformation. They need to understand how cloud can bring them value (e. g. through faster innovation and cost optimization), prepare a cloud strategy (including building the right capabilities) and then consistently implement that strategy.
Individuals need to acquire cloud-native technical and business skills. Such abilities will be essential in the coming decade.
