The corona crisis triggered a veritable surge in digitalization all over the world, and at the same time, put the concept of digital resilience more in the limelight. In general, this concept refers to the ability of companies and ecosystems to cope with crises or unforeseen events of any kind and to emerge from them stronger.

Digital distribution, sales and communication channels have gained in importance worldwide during the pandemic. By digitalizing more areas of their work, companies have been able to increase their digital resilience while at the same time opening up new digital business models.

However, this digital resilience is often acquired at a high price: when companies make themselves dependent on large, internationally active technology groups and their platforms. The use of large hyperscalers, for example, means that data sovereignty and customization options fall by the wayside.

Rather, the old proprietary game of non-transparency and vendor lock-in is continued, with all the associated dangers such as problems with data migration or a lack of investment security. Companies should remember that real digital resilience is only possible with digital sovereignty.
