Tietoevry forms strategic partnership with Google Cloud
24 November 2022
Tietoevry, a leader in digital sovereignty and sustainability, today announced a strategic partnership with Google Cloud focused on driving business transformation across the Nordics. The partnership will accelerate cloud adoption and data-driven innovation while embracing openness and collaboration between customers and partners across key Nordic countries including Finland, Sweden, and Norway.
“We’re excited to help scale Google Cloud technology and capabilities in the Nordics and to build open digital ecosystems. This partnership aims to accelerate digital transformation for our joint customers, particularly those in regulated industries. We welcome Google Cloud’s recent cloud region announcements in Sweden and Norway and see this as an important step to democratizing data-driven innovation throughout the Nordic region with safe and compliant cloud solutions,” said Johan Torstensson, Managing Director Tietoevry Connect.
As part of this agreement, Tietoevry has committed to help scale-up Google Cloud skills and capabilities in the region and become a Nordic Google Cloud leader with 1,000 Google Cloud certified professionals by 2025.
Tietoevry and Google Cloud have already collaborated by supporting several financial services companies across the Nordics such as Arek Oy, to help to modernize its applications with Google Cloud services.
"The cloud offers flexible, cost-effective and continuity-safe services, which are important to Arek's critical infrastructure. Arek moves its services to the cloud in a controlled manner, first transferring the heavy workload demanding and high cost generating services. In software development, Arek uses Google Cloud’s technology to build cloud-native solutions. With production services, Arek relies on the private cloud solution offered by Tietoevry. The technologies used are chosen so that the services are compatible with public cloud,” said Aaro Mutikainen, CEO Arek Oy.
"The partnership between Google Cloud and Tietoevry represents a significant step forward for the Nordics region," said Eva Fors, Managing Director, Google Cloud, Nordics. "Bringing together Google Cloud's leading technologies and capabilities with the expertise of one of the Nordics’ leading companies, will allow us to partner more deeply with local businesses and support them on their cloud journey.”
