Belgium ranks 20th in the GCI 2019, the same as last year.
Belgium has performed impressively, with the majority of its indicators above the global average. It is firmly in the cluster of high-performing countries. 4G coverage has improved since last year, and there has been more investment in cloud computing and AI. Belgian businesses effectively exploit the possibilities offered by ecommerce, social media, and cloud-based applications. This has boosted data creation and the demand for cloud migration. The number of organizations that use cloud solutions continues to rise, and likewise for secured servers and the demand for AI. The number of cloud solutions as a percentage of all IT applications is also increasing. This is a trend across all types of organization with more momentum gained in the adoption of cloud solutions over the last few years. In 2010, only 13% of Belgian organizations used one or more cloud solution. By 2018, that number was 64%. This means more than a 500% increase. (Source: the Belgium Cloud Barometer)
