Hong Kong と Singapore が、とても素晴らしいが ・・・

今週は、この Cloud News Asia をネタにしたセミナーを、3回も行いました。そのための資料を作る過程で、ダウンタイムなどによる損失について、とても興味深い対比が見つかったので、今週は、それを整理してみたいと思います。
 
Singapore firms lost more than S$1.3b from data loss, downtime in past year
HK firms lost US$2.2 billion from data loss and downtime: EMC
Data loss and downtime costs Aussie business $US55 billion in 2014
 
Downtimeこうしてみると、Singapore($1.3B)および Hong Kong($2.2B)と、Australia($55B)の間に大きなギャップが見られますが、いずれのレポートも、EMC の調査がベースになっているので、まったく異なる基準から得られたデータというわけではなさそうです。そして、上記の Singapore に関するコンテントに、以下のような表記が見つかりました。
 
Across the Asia Pacific and Japan region, the data loss and downtime cost have led to US$34 billion in losses for businesses in the last 12 months.
 
Australia の被害総額が大きいのは確かですが、APAC 諸国の平均値が US$34 billion ということなので、それほど突飛なものではないと思われます。
 
Still, Singapore ranked fourth in the EMC Global Data Protection Index after China, Hong Kong and The Netherlands.
 
そして、この部分を読むと、グローバルでも Hong Kong は2位、Singapore は 4位に付けている状況が見えてきます。 つまり、アジアの優等生というより、世界のトップ・グループに属しているのです。 ただし、一連のデータは、あくまでも EMC から見える範囲のものであり、そういう制約があるという前提で、捉える必要があるでしょう。
 
なお、この1年で、Cloud New Asia にストックされたダウンタイム情報は、以下のとおりです。

cna_6それにしても、ダウンタイムなどによる被害総額において、APAC 諸国の平均値が US$34 billion ということですが、かなりの金額ですよね。  世界とアジアの比較や、アジアの中での日本のポジションなどを知りたいですね。 EMC のデータを調べれば、何か分かるのかもしれません。 でも、理想的には、あらゆるベンダーやプロバイダーからのデータを集約した、世界ランキングが欲しいですよね。 _AC Stamp
