Why Read This Brief

The e-signature market is still emerging and involves a plethora of rapidly changing products and services. Despite its leadership in mobile and electronic identification, Europe still lags behind the US in e-signature adoption, hampered by inconsistent regulations in the primary economies, although a recent EU regulation promises to solidify and promote e-signature adoption across Europe. The more basic electronic signature will win out over the advanced qualified electronic signature. Ultimately, major e-signature providers will offer in-country SaaS solutions and gateways to global trusted service providers to ease the burden when an advanced signature based on a digital certificate is required. This report provides enterprise architects with a strategic approach to accelerating international e-signature adoption.
