Knowit and Amazon Web Services (AWS) establish Nordic strategic collaboration
Published 30 Nov 2022
Knowit has entered into a new 5-year strategic collaboration agreement with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to accelerate digital transformation of customers in the Nordics. The increased collaboration with AWS aims to supply customers with the latest technology and support. As a frontrunner in sustainable technology consulting, Knowit is among the first in the Nordic market to ensure its cloud offerings are sustainability-driven.
The demand for cloud services is increasing with changed consumption behaviors and in step with the possibilities opened up by the latest technologies. Increased demand is being driven by organizations in sectors such as e-commerce, insurance, banking, manufacturing, healthcare, and the public sector. Organizations in these sectors seek to modernize infrastructure and leverage next-generation cloud technologies to drive productivity, efficiency, new business models, and to transform the customer experience.
Valmet, a leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation, and services for the pulp, paper, and energy industries, has chosen Knowit as its AWS partner. Knowit helps take care of all things AWS-related, for Valmet.
”For us, it was important to find a partner who has strong expertise and technological knowledge of AWS services and knows how to utilize those. In addition to that, Knowit has vast experience of industrial services and knowledge of Industrial Internet and its possibilities. With AWS-services, we are boosting our clients’ performance for example by utilising data for preventive maintenance” says Juha-Pekka Helminen, Director, Valmet Digital Ecosystem & Platform.
“Knowit has a strong combination of competencies in strategic consulting, IT systems design, implementation, and user experience. They use these to develop innovative, tailor-made and sustainable solutions that contribute to high business value for clients. We are excited to collaborate with a partner whose solutions can be found in all parts of society – from schools and hospitals to e-commerce and hospitality, providing secure and broad services for the Nordics”, says Vittorio Sanvito, Director, Partner Development, at Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL.
Knowit aims to create sustainable value by being at the forefront of Nordic customers’ increasingly strategic digital agenda. With this strategic collaboration, Knowit will help companies, and public organizations accelerate their journey to the cloud and boost their digital transformation.
“We have taken leaps and bounds towards a clearer framework for our sustainability efforts. Cloud solutions and digitalization are at the core of leading economic sectors towards new digital environments and innovations, and simultaneously enabling them to do so sustainably. Our collaboration with AWS will supply our customers with the technology they need to contribute to a more sustainable society, in line with our vision. The commitment to such issues is high among our employees and it’s proven in several client relationships.” says Per Wallentin, President & CEO, Knowit Group.
