As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 30th of March, 2020, a product from the Croatian company Poslovna Inteligencija (Business Intelligence), the Data Privacy Manager, has become the first Croatian IT product to be included in the prestigious Forrester Wave report that reviews global products and services for global customers.

This home-based software helps businesses address the challenges they face when complying with data protection laws, especially in the area of ​​redundant data removal, where it remains the only solution on the global market that addresses GDPR data erasure.

“Protecting the privacy of individuals is one of the main concerns for businesses of all sizes today, and the Data Privacy Manager was developed precisely to help them comply with new data protection laws, such as GDPR,” explained Marijan Bračić of Poslovna Inteligencija, adding that it is interesting that despite the fact that the most rigorous law on personal data protection is precisely the European Union’s GDPR, this innovative Croatian IT product remains one of the few solutions from the European Union to be included in Forrester Wave, while most solutions come from the American market.

“American companies and investors recognised the great potential of the privacy management software market earlier on. In the coming years, this growth will be further accelerated globally as GDPR triggered a wave of data protection regulations around the world, such as the California CCPA, the Brazilian LGPD, the Indian Data Protection Act and similar legislation,” said Bračić, noting that being included in this highly respected report further confirms that this Croatian IT product, as well as others, are all keeping up with the pace of both European and world trends.

The Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK), which uses this Croatian IT product to protect its members’ data, was among the first to give confidence to the quality products made by Croatian companies.

“The quality of the Croatian IT sector has long been proven, and this product from Poslovna Inteligencija enables us to protect data by the latest standards, which is very important to us. The message we want to send out is that we don’t need to search the world if we want top-quality technology solutions – because we have them right here in our backyard. We hope that as many of our companies and institutions as possible give Croatian IT solutions a chance and that by buying a Croatian one, we’ll strengthen the domestic economy,” concluded HGK President Luka Burilović.
