With this agreement, HiQ adds City Network’s public City Cloud and regulatory Compliant Cloud as a base for its clients’ digital transformation. 

HiQ helps private and public sector organisations with digital services, from concept development to implementation. Providing cloud platforms for the development, deployment and delivery of its solutions is a crucial part of these operations. In this context, the partnership with City Network and the opportunity to provide its public and compliant cloud services as a base for customers’ digital innovation will play an important role.
