Nordic Enterprises Flock to Fast, Green Cloud Services

Share

Readily available green energy and high-speed connectivity allow private and hybrid cloud providers in the Nordics to deliver a growing portfolio of services to meet enterprise needs, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Next-Gen Private/Hybrid Cloud — Data Center Services and Solutions report for the Nordics finds sustainable energy at low rates is helping Nordic providers both contain costs and support enterprises’ increasingly important environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. The ample supply of high-speed, low-latency network links to major European data centers adds to the strength of Nordic providers’ offerings.

“Connectivity and sustainability are high on the list of what many enterprises want from cloud providers,” said Anna Medkouri, partner, technology modernization, ISG EMEA. “The leading Nordic providers are well-positioned to deliver those benefits.”

Fast, secure and reliable networks help data-center operators in the Nordics establish edge computing managed services and managed hosting solutions in the region, the report says. In most cases, the data center providers are network-agnostic, giving their clients choice and flexibility.

Enterprises in the region are motivated to use alternative energy sources and reduce their carbon footprints, in some cases by government programs, such as tax incentives in Sweden, ISG says. Providers are moving in the same direction. For example, one provider in Denmark has begun using offshore wind power to run its data centers, and others are recovering waste heat from their facilities to heat nearby homes.

In addition, Nordic enterprises are turning to service providers for assistance in deploying technologies that improve operations and help them achieve their goals. More providers are considering automation tools such as AI, bots, machine learning and software-defined infrastructure to support their managed services. Also, with the emergence of the European GDPR law and other data standards, Nordic governments and non-governmental organizations are increasingly interested in establishing sovereign clouds.

“Data management and privacy concerns are reshaping the cloud strategies of highly sensitive organizations,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Many Nordic service providers are stepping up with sovereign cloud managed services.”

The report also explores a wide range of other private/hybrid cloud trends in the Nordics, including mainframe modernization services, mergers and acquisitions, and collaboration among providers.

The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Next-Gen Private/Hybrid Cloud — Data Center Services and Solutions report for the Nordics evaluates the capabilities of 54 providers across four quadrants: Managed Services for Large Accounts, Managed Services for Midmarket, Managed Hosting, and Colocation Services.

The report names Basefarm (Orange Business Services) and Tietoevry as Leaders in three quadrants each. It names CGI, Fujitsu, Kyndryl and T-Systems as Leaders in two quadrants each. Accenture, ATEA, Bulk Infrastructure, Capgemini, Digital Realty, Equinix, Ficolo, HCL, LTI, Lumen, Sopra Steria, Stack Infrastructure, TCS and Wipro are named as Leaders in one quadrant each.

In addition, Advania and Tech Mahindra are named as Rising Stars — companies with a “promising portfolio” and “high future potential” by ISG’s definition — in one quadrant each.

A customized version of the report is available from Tietoevry.

ProDERM Study Results of octagam ® 10% Treatment in Patients With Dermatomyositis Published in the New England Journal of Medicine6.10.2022 18:33:00 CEST | Press release

Octapharma announced today the results from the ProDERM study on the efficacy and safety of octagam® 10% [Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human)], in adult dermatomyositis (DM) patients have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine (Aggarwal R et al. “Efficacy and safety of intravenous immunoglobulin in dermatomyositis”). Dermatomyositis is an immune-mediated myopathy characterised by chronic inflammation of the skin and muscles, leading to cutaneous rashes and progressive muscle weakness. DM is associated with increased morbidity and mortality due to muscle weakness and visceral involvement. Prior to the ProDERM study findings, no therapy had been approved in the US or Europe for the treatment of dermatomyositis based on randomized clinical trials. The Progress in DERMatomyositis (ProDERM) study was the first large randomized clinical trial to investigate an intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) (octagam® 10%) in dermatomyositis. The results of the study demonstrated that octaga

New Visa Reports Underscore Importance of Cybersecurity Amid Shifting Threats6.10.2022 17:34:00 CEST | Press release

Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), the world leader in digital payments, today shared an updated look at how fraud has evolved since the height of the pandemic, with criminals simultaneously targeting online and offline vulnerabilities as our daily lives return to a blend of in-person and e-commerce experiences. “As in-person commerce returns to pre-pandemic levels, crooks are back to exploiting the physical points of vulnerability in stores, while continuing to capitalize on e-commerce through malware, ransomware and phishing attacks, among others,” said Paul D. Fabara, Chief Risk Officer at Visa. “In fact, we are continuing to see high rates of skimming, growing over the already elevated levels of the winter of 2021, where fraudsters are jumping on the rise of in-person activity.” Two new pieces of research – the latest Visa Biannual Threats Report and an MIT Technology Review Insights study “Moving Money in a Digital World,” released today in partnership with Visa – highlight new and returning thr
