Nordic Enterprises Embrace Cloud Services to Improve Customer Experience
Enterprises in the Nordic region are increasing their spending on public cloud services and digital transformation to improve customer experiences, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.
The 2021 ISG Provider Lens™Public Cloud – Services & Solutions Report for the Nordics finds enterprises in the region also increasing cloud spending to expand their product and service portfolios across the globe. In response, public cloud service providers are focused on improving their digital transformation advisory services. Cloud spending in the Nordics has increased across all industry verticals over the last five to six quarters.
“Enterprises in the Nordic region have embraced the cloud and emerging digital technologies to become more cost effective and enhance customer experience,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Companies are also looking for help from public cloud service providers to scale their digital solutions and reinvent their businesses models.”
Some companies are making steady progress in their digital transformation and cloud journeys by working with service providers to accelerate adoption, while others are trapped in a “digital deadlock,” with legacy technologies, entrenched organizational structures and hesitant management combining to hinder growth, the report says.
As Nordic enterprises embrace the cloud and larger digital transformation efforts, they are seeking collaborative and co-innovation partners instead of traditional IT services providers, the report adds. Companies in the region are demanding agile IT delivery, which requires infrastructure modernization and the use of cloud technologies such as microservices, containers and embedded AI. IT providers, the report says, must recognize the cloud as the default infrastructure option and adjust their delivery organizations accordingly.
The report also sees public cloud services as the mainstream solution for developing new business models. The IT market in the Nordics has long been one of the most progressive markets in Europe, and while some large enterprises there continue to run their applications on legacy systems, there is a significant increase in the number of enterprises embracing cloud and other digital models during the past two years.
In addition, the report finds an increased migration of SAP workloads to the cloud in the Nordics, in part because of accelerated digital adoption prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nordic enterprises in the past were reluctant to transfer their SAP HANA workloads to the cloud due to data sovereignty and security issues, but the pandemic has refocused executives’ emphasis on cost reduction and workload optimization. Many banking and retail companies in the region have begun migrating SAP HANA workloads to the public cloud using a proof-of-concept model.
The 2021 ISG Provider Lens™Public Cloud – Services & Solutions Report for the Nordics evaluates the capabilities of 52 providers across six quadrants: Consulting and Transformational Services for Large Accounts, Consulting and Transformational Services for the Midmarket, Managed Public Cloud Services for Large Accounts, Managed Public Cloud Services for the Midmarket, Hyperscale Infrastructure and Platform Services, and SAP HANA Infrastructure Services.
The report names TietoEVRY as a Leader in four quadrants and Accenture, AWS, Basefarm (Orange), Capgemini, CGI, Fujitsu, Google, HCL, IBM, IT Relation, LTI, Microsoft, NNIT, Nordcloud (IBM) Solita, Sopra Steria, TCS and Wipro as Leaders in two quadrants. Crayon, Eficode and Tech Mahindra are named Leaders in one quadrant.
In addition, Basefarm (Orange) was named a Rising Star—a company with “promising portfolios” and “high future potential” by ISG’s definition—in two quadrants. Crayon, Infosys and Tech Mahindra are named Rising Stars in one quadrant.
