The Government of the Netherlands has agreed to incorporate Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) in its cloud service offerings for government agencies as part of a renewal of its existing service contract with Oracle. OCI’s commercial public cloud regions will enable the National Government to take advantage of the many benefits cloud computing offers, including scalability, security, flexibility, and reliable performance.
The renewal of the agreement includes a version of the standard cloud terms and conditions as well as a Data Processing Agreement based on the government’s Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) of available cloud services.
“This renewed agreement with Oracle marks an important milestone in our strategic collaboration,” said Richard Wiersema, director operations, DICTU of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate and strategic supplier manager, Oracle for the Dutch government. “With Oracle, we as the national government have an important partner in house that helps us achieve our digital goals and enables us to meet the needs of Dutch society. The cloud plays a crucial role in meeting these objectives.”
OCI provides advanced data privacy and security capabilities, enabling government agencies to work safely and efficiently in the cloud. It meets the high international security standards, including SOC, ISO, GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP, IL-5, and more, and offers a comprehensive range of security features, including encryption technologies, integrated identity management, and strict access controls protecting against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of data. Using OCI, government agencies can securely store, process, and analyze data while helping them to meet the most stringent privacy protection requirements. Other significant benefits include performance, reliability, cost-effectiveness, integration, and digital innovation. The high performance and low latency of OCI enables the running of the most demanding workloads with high availability and disaster recovery capabilities.
“With our renewed collaboration, we can further support the national government, as a cloud partner, in their digital objectives,” said Wilfred Scholman, country leader, Oracle Netherlands. “With OCI, we are providing a cloud infrastructure designed to meet the unique needs of the Government of the Netherlands.
