On the other hand, a DPO must advise against many of these tools, because of the Schrems II decision and the advice from Data Protection authorities to be careful about working with non-EU cloud-based solutions.

In this Debate Room, we had a look at the extent of the issue and the real-life consequences. Amongst others, we came to the conclusion that there is currently no good solution.
