In 2020, only 25% of Hungarian enterprises used cloud computing services, well below the EU average of 36%, according to data by statistical agency Eurostat.
The share of Hungarian companies using cloud computing services grew from 12% in 2016. The EU average share stood at 19% back then.
Even though the share of firms with internet access was at very similar high levels across EU Member States (98% of firms employing 10 persons or more had access), the use of cloud computing varied significantly, the agency notes.
The highest rate of firms using cloud computing was registered in Finland (75%), Sweden (70%), and Denmark (67%) in 2020.
At the other end of the spectrum, such services were used by fewer than one in five enterprises in Bulgaria (11%), Romania (16%), and Greece (17%).
