If you’re looking to launch a cloud-based venture, Ireland wants you to know it’s open for business. Very open. Not just a tax haven, mind you, Ireland wants to be very clear about that, given allegations to the contrary in the US Congress last year. In late 2013, Ireland’s Industrial Development Agency, chartered to attract foreign business to the island, pushed back hard on allegations that companies establish “headquarters” in Ireland in order to render themselves immune from corporate tax. The IDA stressed, in a Venture Beat Op-Ed, that, while it’s 12.5 percent corporate tax rate is attractive there is far more to recommend Ireland as a “cloud haven.”

The G-Cloud procurement platform is intended to level the playing field for smaller IT suppliers battling against established giants for contracts, and 56 percent of the £92.65m total spend has gone to small and medium-sized IT suppliers. But the biggest deals of December went to larger companies.

As the year changes, everyone makes lists. Here’s mine: the top 5 reasons the EU would be wrong to kill Safe Harbor. I hope EU politicians will resolve to consider them before dropping lumps of coal into their citizens’ privacy stockings. Their threat to terminate the Safe Harbor program: is based on inaccurate information; would destroy one of the few effective US legal tools to protect EU citizens’ privacy; would heavily burden US companies and trans-Atlantic commerce; has no chance to stop NSA spying-- the professed goal; and is ill-timed given now that the US government now is starting to police itself.

A European Parliament committee is getting ready to recommend suspension of the safe harbor agreement allowing American companies to attest they meet the European Union's data protection requirements and so legally process its citizens' data.
