The agreement runs until further notice and is the first that Adda Inköpscentral has entered with a Swedish supplier in the contract area of software and cloud services. The deal means that Cleura has made several commitments in data protection issues and offered municipalities and regions better prices. The agreement will make it easier for cities and regions to conduct risk and impact analyses when handling personal data.
Cleura is a Swedish company whose cloud services for digital infrastructure operate from data centers in Sweden. Thus, the company is subject only to European data protection laws and regulations. The cloud services ensure that all customer data is managed and stored within Europe under the GDPR and the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act (OSL).
“The agreement with Adda Inköpscentral enables the public sector to take advantage of the cloud's opportunities for digital innovation while protecting their data, With the agreement, the Swedish public sector shows that they take the issue of digital sovereignty very seriously. We look forward to helping Swedish municipalities and regions in their digitalization," says Jim Johansson, CEO of Cleura.
Background to the agreement
Volume contracts for the Swedish public sector have existed since 2005. From focusing solely on specific commercial terms, data protection issues have become increasingly important. In 2021, Adda Inköpscentral declined a new volume contract with Microsoft, citing uncertainties about personal data management and current legislation.
