TietoEVRY Broadens Vision to Focus on Hyperconnected Data built on Cloud-native Platform
TietoEVRY has announced its new strategy to drive customer value and growth through specialization in hyperconnected data management and cloud computing technologies. According to Gartner, Cloud is at the core of every new technological advancement, enabling organizations with much-needed capabilities during ‘times of uncertainty’. With hyperconnected data converging with Cloud computing services, any business can develop resilience, agility, and sustainability in a very short time. Meanwhile, TietoEVRY has also signed an agreement to sell its software businesses Alystra, Jydacom and TRYGG/2000 to EG, a Nordic software company.
Cloud computing is a mainstream computing model that has been validated as a dependable foundation for delivering IT capabilities. – Gartner

Investments will be focused on businesses where the company sees competitive advantages and sustainable growth: cloud-native services, data & software engineering and scalable software businesses, including their global expansion potential. In the areas of traditional managed application and infrastructure services, the company sees new partnerships as potential means to build scale and pursue joint investments.
To capture the momentum of cloud-native and software market, TietoEVRY is establishing six specialized end-to-end businesses. These businesses will have full operational responsibility, including go-to-market, service portfolio, investments and partnerships.

These businesses, built on the solid foundation of the current service lines, are: Business Design & Engineering, Health & Care Software, Financial Services Solutions, Industry Software, Enterprise Modernization and Cloud Platform Services.
The following investment priorities will drive competitiveness and value creation in each business:
- Invest to expand in Business Design & Engineering, Health & Care Software and Financial Services Solutions – invest to accelerate products, services and capabilities; prioritized M&A.
- Partner to scale in Enterprise Modernization and Cloud Platform Services – invest in capabilities to drive scale and automated managed services; seek partners (operational and structural) to jointly invest and scale.
- Focus for value in Industry Software – optimized investments for selected businesses and develop a portfolio to increase focus.
At the time of this announcement, Kimmo Alkio, the President and CEO said –
“The global technology market is going through a profound change as the market is becoming cloud-enabled and new technologies are at the core of enterprise business renewal. This is the right time to renew our strategy, also in light of our integration progress, and capture the opportunities stemming from the high-growth markets for cloud and software.
The change in the market opens up opportunities for TietoEVRY to provide high-value creation, operational agility and innovation for our clients through specialization. We believe this specialization-focused strategy with six end-to-end businesses will be highly competitive in the market. Our businesses will be able to explore alternative means to accelerate growth and expansion through business-specific investments, partnerships and potential M&A. With this strategy, we also enable further value creation for our shareholders.
The direction we are setting today is the biggest change in the company’s history – and we are taking a quantum leap forward in our potential. I trust these changes will also be highly rewarding to our employees, as we will all gain enhanced learning opportunities and a sense of pride from our individual contributions to our customers’ success.
