Recorded livestream: Time to draw the route to insight and innovation

And why you should hyperconnect data, applications, and people. View the full recorded event below!

16.3.2021, Online

Let’s set the scene; Gartner expects overall data growth to have risen 530 % between 2018 and 2025, more organizations are turning towards software-driven business models, and over 500 million new digital apps and services are predicted to be added by 2023. How do you connect the dots of data and applications with people?

On March 16th, we streamed live as Johan Torstensson, Head of Cloud & Infra at TietoEVRY, and customers from various industries, discussed how to utilize hyperconnected data and talent to increase customer experience and explore new opportunities.

The future role of the CIO is a topic of discussion vital to drawing the route to insight and innovation. Check out what Johan has to say about the future role of the CIO. 




Innovation as a Mindset to secure new revenue streams, Teemu Salmi, Stora Enso

The market for newspapers went down from 80% to 18% of revenue over 20 years. We will talk to Teemu about Stora Enso's DigiFund that engage all their 24 000 employees in the innovation process. We'll also discuss how Stora Enso found new ways to develop renewable package material from fiber rather than plastic, and batteries from wood, keeping the revenue streams steady and becoming more sustainable as they go. 

Quality of Life enabled by data, Cristina Petrescu, Sodexo

Is it possible to improve business processes and increase customer experiences whilst you decrease the number of resources, human errors and simplify the day-to-day work? And if so, it is possible to reduce costs as you transform your organization? Cristina Petrescu from Sodexo is joining us to tell us how Sodexo took a leap into digitalization transformation and what that can do for the end-user.

Hackathon as a tool for increased customer experience, Alexander Haneng, Posten Norge

Posten Norge AS went from being a 200-year-old traditional waterfall organization, to an organization that utilizes Hackathons to quickly adapt to new market situations. We will discuss the impact of this change with Alexander Haneng, who will give us some insight into how Posten Norge has increased customer experience and developed a new innovation culture.

Traditional business, strict regulations, and new technology – can they be combined? Mikko Lantto, Ilmarinen.

Ilmarinen has set challenging goals; to be one of Finland’s best places to work, offer the best customer experience in the sector, and grow profitably. Our discussion with Mikko Lantto will focus on why Ilmarinen moved 70% of their workload into public cloud to achieve their goals, how they look at partnerships, and how sitting in the driver’s seat have helped them on their road trip to a new destination.
