Digital transformation is changing the modus operandi of organizations – both in the public and private sector. This is also the case for Italy, that is still lagging behind more advanced countries. The speed of transformation will also impact Italy’s growth and the international competitiveness of Italian companies. The study by the Institute for Competitiveness analyzes policies that are being implemented to enable Italy to achieve the targets set by the European Digital Agenda and to speed up cloud adoption.
The National Institute for Astrophysics (Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica or INAF) is an Italian institution that conducts scientific research in astronomy and astrophysics. INAF research ranges from the study of the planets and minor bodies of the solar system to the large-scale structure of the Universe. Recently, INAF has been involved in two large projects where they turned to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud: the ESO Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) and Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA).
