Lead Cybersecurity Architect, Tieto

Machine Learning and especially Artificial Intelligence (ML and AI respectively) have been all the rage in the last couple of years, starting to grab headlines in the past year or so. Doom, loss of jobs and cyborgs on the horizon? Or more leisure and more interesting and rewarding work? It is hard to say. What is clear, however, is that AI is making its way into everyday usage and lives, as demonstrated eg. by our Espoo AI case. More

The Value of SaaS

March 18, 2019. | Jani Jääskeläinen, Tieto

Jani Jääskeläinen

Head of SaaS Enablement Services, Tieto

Software-as-a-Service or SaaS has existed as a model for more than 40 years. It took its early form as "time sharing" of large and expensive mainframe systems that were utilized by many organizations and target groups. Today, thanks to the internet and cloud, SaaS mainly is a cloud-based software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. More

On March 10, Chuck Norris, the unconquerable defender of everything, celebrates his 79th birthday.

How to survive in the hybrid cloud world?

February 7, 2019. | Peter Österdahl, Tieto Security Services

Peter Österdahl

Business Developer, Tieto Security Services

Can things change quickly and still stay the same? Many companies have mastered this seemingly impossible task. They adopt bleeding-edge cloud services and use the latest technologies to drive business, but at the same time use old organizational structures to run the company. If you want to do business effectively, your company must change. More

Minna Kivimäki

Digital Transformation Lead, Tieto,

Digital relations are the new culture and norm in any modern organization as teams are geographically scattered, working virtually and using various digital services to connect to each other and work together. At the same time, traditional face-to-face relations decrease. This requires new ways of working, while some of the old ones become irrelevant. More

Annual NRF Retail’s Big Show conference was arranged once again in the heart of Manhattan, New York on Jan 13-15. Even if the conference is hosted by U.S. based organization National Retail Foundation (NRF) it gathers tens of thousands of visitors representing retailers, brands, solution providers and other people globally interested in the latest trends, ideas, technologies and business opportunities of retail. The conference together its sideline workshops and meet-ups offer also excellent opportunity for networking and meeting new people across the retail world. For the first timer the NRF can be very confusing because there are so many interesting topics to explore and experience. This was my fourth time in the NRF, so I knew well what to expect and how to get most out of it. More

Timo Ahomäki

Head of Portfolio Development, Tieto Security Services

Modern business is based on the cloud, which in turn consists of ecosystems of several different parties. This kind of joint effort would not be possible without a certain level of trust between the parties. In security, trust is now the most valuable currency. More

Most of the current HR tools have become outdated – a fact accelerated by rapid changes in technologies and the labour market.

In this blog, I will introduce new technologies that support end-user experience and provide new information for better decision-making. More

Marko Ullgren

Lead Solution Architect, Customer Experience Management business unit, Tieto

My interest in the art of coding was first sparked when I got a Commodore 64 home computer as a kid. The idea of making a career out of IT first came to me when I was a university student majoring in physics, and I soon switched majors to computer science. Shortly after that I ended up working as a part-time software designer, and I you could say that I am still on that same path today. More

The storm of cybersecurity challenges that faces organizations in the Nordics today puts them under a lot of pressure.

More

Markus Melin

Head of Tieto Security Services, Tieto

IT departments used to have it easy. An organization’s hardware and software were strictly specified, and no deviations were allowed. This led to the infamous shadow IT, where people use their own software, devices, and unsanctioned methods to get the job done – often at the expense of security. More

Sami Uski

Head of Business Development, Banking, Tieto

In the Nordics, a few banks now have their Open Banking platforms available, giving customers access to selected value-added services and providing test access to the account information mandated by PSD2. More
