Germany: Roundtable on Digital Policies and B2B Software Industry Responses to COVID-19
May 6, 2020
BSA hosts a virtual roundtable with Dieter Janecek – Member of the German Bundestag, and Spokesperson for Industrial Policy and Digital Economy for the German Green Party – on the challenges and opportunities of the business-to-business software industry in supporting COVID-19 recovery efforts in Germany, the EU, and globally.
BSA’s Thomas Boué moderates a discussion on how the enterprise software industry can help power the remote economy, maximize public health and safety, and maintain essential functions that people in Germany and all over the world depend on for critical business and personal needs.
Participants also exchange views on the digital policy priorities and strategic initiatives that will help governments and their citizens to prepare for and enable increased teleworking and other remote-based activities, including the responsible use of cloud-based software services.
