Ecosystem Index 2022
The Global Cloud Ecosystem Index is a ranking of 76 countries and territories according to how well technology, regulations, and talent promote the availability of cloud services. It also evaluates and compares the regulatory frameworks and digital practices that promote the use of cloud models in the public and private sector.
The Global Cloud Ecosystem Index rates and ranks each of the world’s major economies according to how well technology, regulations, and talent promote the availability of cloud services. It also evaluates and compares the regulatory frameworks and digital practices that promote the use of cloud models in the public and private sector.
This pillar consists of various data points that indicate how well each country is served by telecommunications networks and computing resources which enable cloud-centric production models.
These six indicators combine the extent to which each country’s constituents access the outputs of cloud application and services across public and private sectors.
Security and assurancen
This pillar measures the maturity of regulatory environments that promote progressive, cloud-forward data security and sovereignty environments—and enable trust in digital resources.
Talent and affinity
The indicators in this pillar examine each country’s human capital assets that can contribute to a cloud-based digital economy.
Today, cloud is computing—a foundational resource for businesses and governments alike as they strive to harness emerging technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things.
“The cloud is going to play a very important role in providing resilience, agility, and low latency for heavy workloads with millions of people accessing applications.”
“We select our cloud region locations based on customer demand to make services easier and faster for companies, and we also invest in those locations to make sure we have the right talent to serve our customers.”

About the Index
The Global Cloud Ecosystem Index 2022 is a snapshot of worldwide cloud development and innovation. It ranks 76 nations and territories on the technology, regulations, and talent they use to promote cloud computing services. The Index consolidates scores given to each nation or territory across four themes, or pillars: infrastructure, ecosystem adoption, security and assurance, and talent and human affinity.
The Global Cloud Ecosystem Index is based on the analysis of global macroeconomic, labor, trade, and technology data and primary research interviews with global technology developers, analysts, and policymakers. It quantifies the economies of 76 countries and territories along four separate pillars: infrastructure, ecosystem adoption, security and assurance, and talent and human affinity.
adoption A half dozen indicators combine the extent to which each country’s constituents access the outputs of cloud application and services across public and private sectors.
assurance The maturity of regulatory environments which promote progressive, cloud-forward data security and sovereignty environments—and enable trust in digital resources.
Within each pillar, a series of indicators—lists of qualitative and quantitative factors—were then selected and populated. Through trend analysis and research, weighting assumptions were assigned to determine the relative importance with which each indicator and pillar influenced a country’s cloud computing posture.
