Cyber security was ranked as one of the top five global risks for businesses at World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in 2018. As the EU General Data Protection Regulation’s deadline has just passed, there is growing pressure on businesses worldwide to ensure that they are making cyber security a top priority. More

Improving your Sales efficiency is not easy. Especially, if you do not have a clear view why the money is not coming in. Measuring quarterly revenue alone is not going to help you determine which areas to focus on to make your Sales team more successful. More

Today, the cloud has been widely acknowledged as an effective and efficient enabler to improve the IT landscape. But many, especially in certain industries, still worry about the security and compliance of cloud services and regard security and compliance as an “apple of discord” for cloud. More

Europe´s leading startup event, Slush 2017 has sent out a call for solvers and we are proud to partner with them as a main sponsor again this year. Together, we will be seeking solutions to the challenges that we face as a society and the ones that our partners face in business. More

Cloud is easy, cloud is good. That’s why companies are extensively utilizing the opportunities it provides. Want to set up an ad-hoc testing environment for a small project? It might have taken several days and a lot of red tape to do this in a closed corporate network, but in the cloud, it’s a matter of minutes. More

The era of digitalization is making organisations everywhere realise that software is an essential part of the products and services they deliver. Organisations are also reshaping themselves to include elements that used to belong to software business, such as connectivity, data gathering and mobility. Today, this kind of features and working processes familiar within software business, are applied in all organisations. Eventually, software is everywhere. More

Cloud as a delivery model has been discussed for a long time now and we have seen a dramatic growth of cloud services in the past years. But do organisations really know where they stand in this journey? And what is the real cloud maturity among large organisations in the Nordics? And what do the top IT decision makers say about their cloud maturity? More

'The speed of change’ may no longer be quantified as speed, but merely as a state. In order to support growth, customer centricity and business incubator activities, business requirements assume and call for organisational settings to be flexible, fully supportive and aligned. Additionally, traditional leadership is challenged when network leadership is becoming the norm. More

Security management in multi-clouds might feel like an imposing prospect to many of us. Indeed, it is a complicated and intimidating concept, but it can be managed with the same kind of processes and practices that you probably have in place already with your hybrid cloud configuration or even with your data centres.

By the year 2020, many analysts predict that 30% or even more of your IT providers will be highly specialised in a particular area and will deliver that from clouds with high quality. We are seeing that change already, especially in DevOps tools and CRM applications. In many cases, most – if not all – parts of your deployment chain are coming from different vendors. This is a very productive way to work, although sometimes it might, unfortunately, be difficult to find support for the whole chain if problems emerge. More

The world has changed a lot since the early days of outsourcing. Where there was usually one outsourcing partner, there may now be dozens. Some of them are large, others are small – as are the components they provide to your processes. More

Cloud computing is now a fact of life for many businesses. While it's only a few years since the technology was still viewed as a new, disruptive innovation aimed at early-adopters, it's now a standard part of the IT environment in almost every organisation. More

A couple of years ago, my brother in law was telling me that he wanted to run the marathon in Rotterdam in his life. Like me, he was heading to the respectable age of 50 and his body curves were not supporting that idea. Anyway he changed his behaviour and discipline to train multiple times a week, didn’t eat unhealthy food or drink alcoholics. It took two years of training, and last spring he told me that he is going to run - and he made it. Great story! However, if you look a bit more into the details, it was not a straight path to glory and many times the urge to stop popped up. So a painful, but in the end, a rewarding undertaking. More

One of Tieto´s strategic themes is 'to become customers´ first choice'. The IT industry is famous for pushing new technologies into the consumer and B2B markets. It is a coming and going of hypes, mostly accompanied by a lot of noise and overpromises. More

Mikael Ekström

Senior Digitalization Advisory Consultant, Tieto

I believe that CIOs have been in a very tough spot regarding the cloud the last couple of years. They have been pressured by the business to adopt cloud solutions, in order to achieve more agility and speed but also due to big disruptive fears from management. The CIOs and internal IT in general have often been criticized for being stumbling blocks or lacking forward-mindedness when they urge caution, due to for example compliance and security reasons.

Helena Trotzenfeldt

Head of Enterprise Cloud Sales and Business Development, Tieto

What drives the actual take-off of the cloud? As with all trends, there’s first an element of hype that makes heads of organizations curious, but the hype will not make IT departments move forward. We need to be able to demonstrate and provide real value to our customers and potential customers to make them prepared to take the next step. More

Senior Digitalization Advisory Consultant, Tieto

I feel the word digitalization is being used more and more when referring to the need for business and IT to work better together. More

Analyst and strategic advisor, Radar

Cloud Services usage has grown by 20 - 25 % over the last few years and three out of four of all Nordic organizations currently use cloud services in some shape or form. The strong growth has been pushed by the industry hype surrounding cloud services. The hype is gradually being replaced by a more mature approach, where cloud services become a strategic and essential part of a hybrid IT portfolio. More

Viktor Lindqvist

Business technology advisor, Tieto

In the recent study “Cloud Maturity Index 2016”, performed by Radar, I find it very interesting that the least successful, and as well the least cloud mature companies, have become even further left behind in cloud adoption. More

Erik Johannisson

Head of Strategic Marketing and Marketing for Technology Services and Modernization, Tieto

The strong growth in cloud services seen over the last couple of years has been primarily motivated by cost considerations.  The need to reduce cost in IT operations has allowed (or forced) a move to cloud services in order to serve less complex and less strategically important IT needs. Cloud services have become a staple in the delivery of “bread and butter” IT services.   More

Archiving is rapidly evolving from passive document storage into an actively used information repository.

How can you avoid vendor lock-in in the cloud?

Niraj Sood

The cloud is a key enabler of digitalization. It improves agility, frees up resources for innovation and growth, and helps organisations to save money. But the cloud comes with its own challenges, too - including the risk of vendor lock-in. More

Do you think you already have too many clouds?

Niraj Sood

The use of the cloud is growing fast. All large Nordic organisations have now implemented cloud services as part of their corporate IT. Most of them also have a growing array of cloud services introduced as shadow IT by users around the organisation. At the same time, the market for public cloud infrastructure as-a-service is in a state of upheaval. More

The word 'Ecosystem' has been there for ages; teaching us how to live in conjunction with other things around us in a mutually beneficial way.

The same principals of mutual co-existence and the ability to add unprecedented business value through mutual collaboration is sowing the seeds of these business ecosystems. More

It's clear that both the Nordic IT service market and customer demand for these services are undergoing a rapid transformation. Clients must digitalize in order to offer an improved customer experience and achieve operational benefits that are only available to businesses able to harness the disruptive opportunities new technologies can provide. More than any other innovation, cloud services have become a major catalyst for digitalization. More

The necessity of a digital transformation inside organisations and the prospective benefits are generally well known. Digitalisation increases productivity, flexibility and agility and of course, saves money. The focus should now put on what is preventing or slowing down change. We can look at this through the perspective of modernising collaboration and productivity tools. More

Journey to the Cloud

Daniel Downing

Cloud is nothing new. Its concepts have been discussed for nearly a decade. It began with a few early adopters. But it's really only been in the last year that we have seen a huge step in its evolution. In my opinion, this is because Cloud needed its related technologies to mature. More

Are companies ready to adapt to the changes that digitalisation and business transformation are bringing? In my experience, creativity has never been the challenge in big corporations. The problem, rather, has lied more in its implementation, which is how to get your ideas to the market. In many cases, IT is one of the major barriers to realizing new opportunities. More

Cloud offerings are evolving to suit much more specific needs. Instead of just talking about Cloud services in general, the forerunners are now focusing on industry specific Cloud services. Different industries have different requirements and demands, and therefore, it is much more convenient for customers if their services are tailored to their specific needs. This will allow them a faster start with cloud and ensure a safe transformation. More
