A-Insinöörit Oy is a Finnish construction consulting company. Established in 1959, the company has specialised in construction contracting, structural design, civil and environmental engineering, infrastructure design, and rock and environmental design. Risto Tulenheimo, Chief Information Officer at A-Insinöörit, says that the need to exploit various data sources in the business's internal operations and customer projects really took off in 2020.
"We concluded in no uncertain terms that resolving this issue was a matter of urgency from the technical and strategic standpoints. We also noticed that we had begun working in isolated silos, and this level of detachment was undesirable from a Group perspective."
The aim was to build a common data platform that would stream data for the business to use and potentially also for its customers. In addition to the platform itself, the company needed a data strategy and ground rules for working with data. A-Insinöörit has major ambitions specifically to provide and sell digital services to customers, but the company also needed a data platform to enhance its operational efficiency through an internal digital transformation.
