Kuppingercole's Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger gives his opinion on problems and arguments surrounding various apps for tracking the spread of the virus. And privacy is not the biggest challenge here...
That's not the point. What we need to really consider for this app are three other aspects. One is security. Yes. The thing needs to be secure because that's also a matter of trust and we need to have it secure, which means that decentral is better than central. Cause if a central store and central component server gets hacked, we are in trouble. The second is availability soon. So we need this app, but soon, the sooner, the better. So we can't wait and it needs to be available. The, the everywhere it needs to run on apple iPhones, it needs to run on Android devices. If we don't have it running everywhere, it will not help. So we need any way to have the support, the collaboration of these two, which are working jointly in supporting these initiatives. And that is the way we need to look at this entire topic. So not going over the top is privacy because that is not a main point, making it secure, making it available soon as possible amp on every device. That is what we need. And that will give us back a lot of freedom in other areas. So this is my opinion on that. Thank you for listening to me.
