Tuesday 22.03.2022

We are pleased to present you the annual review 2021. First, however, we would like to thank all our sponsors and partners for their excellent cooperation over the past year. Without your support, our work would not be possible!

But now an overview of the activities of the previous year, on which we want to build in 2022.

Best regards and here's to a successful 2022!

annual review 2021 - once again record growth

Once again, we can report record growth: More than 160 new companies joined us in 2021. At the beginning of 2022, we were thus more than 980 companies, with over 1200 products and services bearing the "swiss made software" and/or "swiss hosting" label.

swiss hosting

It is undisputed that data is becoming increasingly important as a strategic asset and driver of innovation. It is not only important where the data is hosted, but also who can exercise control over the data.

The new "swiss hosting" label makes the difference visible - with success! Since the launch at the end of August 2020, over 200 companies have opted for the new label. These companies come from all areas of Swiss ICT. They are hosters, cloud providers and SaaS companies. They all see data sovereignty as a clear competitive advantage, as a quality label with a guarantee, and not as an empty marketing promise. Because all swiss hosting companies have "skin in the game", misuse has consequences. This framework was demanded by the companies and developed in close exchange with the stakeholders.

"dataspace switzerland" - event series

Building on the new swiss hosting label, we successfully launched the "dataspace switzerland" event series. Especially in times of Corona, supply chain bottlenecks, deglobalization and increasing conflicts, we wanted to draw the bow to the topic of digital sovereignty: So happened on 24.06. and 09.12. with the theme evenings "swiss hosting" means data sovereignty as well as Digital sovereignty is on everyone's lips - lofty wish or soon new reality.

All presentations can be found on our Youtube channel (in German):

The event series will be continued in on May 19th, 2022 with a focus on security!

swiss developer survey 2021

2021 we conducted the "swiss developer survey" for the 3rd time! Almost 900 developers from all over Switzerland contributed to the success of the survey. Again, many thanks to the participants, without whom this would not have been possible.

About the content: Not only technological applications are developing fast. The same is true for tools such as programming languages, frameworks, platforms or databases that are used to build new applications. For developers, however, it is about more than "just" working tools. Technology is emotional and thus directly responsible for job satisfaction and choice of employer.

ICT Insurances (ICT-Versicherungen)

In the second year of our cooperation with swissICT and esurance, we were able to further promote the spread of ICT insurance. Well over 100 ICT customers are now using the service. We are seeing growing interest from start-ups and SMEs in particular. The insurance solutions come from the insurance partners Allianz, Swica and Chubb. The offer is exclusive to swissICT members. Thanks to collective purchasing power and profound industry knowledge, it was possible to design an optimized package from the ground up.

According to esurance's evaluation, ICT companies can save an average of 10-19 percent on their entire insurance portfolio. For individual products such as liability insurance, savings of up to 75 percent are possible with the ICT insurance solution.

Unfortunately, our numerous event collaborations fell victim to the Corona virus. As soon as the situation eases, we will step on the gas again. In the meantime, we would like to thank all our partners and keep our fingers crossed for 2022.
