Tieto x Slush

Kimmo Alkio

President & CEO , Tieto

Tieto has a tremendous opportunity to shape the future we live in – we thrive every day to capture the opportunities of the data-driven world and truly create value for society, business and people.

The first half of 2016 has been highly exciting for us in Tieto. In March we launched our new strategy to become customers’ first choice for business renewal as the leading Nordic software and services company. It has been extremely encouraging to see the good engagement we have been able to create among our stakeholders after the launch – now it is the momentum to accelerate growth and innovation!

In the first half of 2016, we continued our investments in future innovation and growth businesses and will maintain our investment agenda in areas such as cloud computing and our Customer Experience Management, Internet of Things, and Security Services. In addition, we invest in software-based industry solutions to increase value for our customers.

I am optimistic that we will accelerate innovation and growth also in the second half of 2016 and  am very excited to announce that Tieto will participate in Slush  – Europe’s  leading startup event. Held in Helsinki, Finland, every November, Slush is a startup event that has grown in just a few short years to 15,000 attendees and 1 million live stream viewers globally. Startups, partners, venture capitalists, and media from over 100 countries come to Slush to drive business, explore emerging technology trends and to experience the start-up mentality!

By participating at Slush, Tieto aims to boost innovation and growth by expanding its ecosystem of partners and embracing the lively start-up atmosphere. We at Tieto are firm believers of openness and co-innovation together with our customers and partners. In the future that will happen via active participation in open ecosystems.  Let’s all join forces in this exciting journey!
