Digitale Gardermoen (DGI) Agrees on Strategic Collaboration with Tieto

Corporate , Supply Chain Operations

A collaboration group of Norwegian municipalities (DGI) has selected Tieto as its supplier of a new delivery platform for the six owner municipalities. The main ambition of the agreement is to create the foundation to meet future needs with digitalization of citizen services, streamlining of processes, ensuring round the clock administration and flexible access for citizens. The agreement has a value of approximately MEUR 22 over four years with an option for an additional four years.

Starting in 2017, Tieto will perform ICT operations on behalf of DGI for the municipalities in the region where Norway’s main airport is located. DGI will be responsible for the administration of the new delivery platform. Automation, flexibility and innovation are keywords for succeeding in ensuring a better delivery platform combined with creating user-friendly citizen services.

- With this agreement, we will enhance our expertise in new areas so that we can help drive municipal digitalization and the development forward to an even greater extent in the future. The cooperation with Tieto will enable faster innovation and increased agility and ensure that the citizens receive access to user-friendly and flexible, digital solutions, says Odd Ruud, Managing Director of DGI.

The purpose of the cooperation is to ensure that the municipalities achieve standardised, stable, secure and scalable services. These services will meet current and future needs,with ever greater demands from the users wanting easy access at any time, from anywhere, on any device in a secure way. The agreement means that a long-term relationship will be established with Tieto also expected to be an actual innovation partner.

- We are very proud to have been selected as a partner and we are truly looking forward to creating value for the citizens and users.  At the same time, we want to commend DGI for daring to express high ambitions on behalf of the citizens so that they can be a true pioneer in digital services, says Christian Schøyen, Head of Tieto Norway.

The delivery platform is based on Tieto OneCloud, a cloud-based platform that consists of hybrid solutions from a selection of dedicated private cloud services from Tieto's Norwegian data centre combined with global public cloud solutions. Tieto has a very strong position and experience with similar projects in Sweden and Finland.

The modernisation of the delivery platform is a major boost for the municipalities in the region around Gardermoen, whose current delivery platform is based on a data hall solution established over ten years ago. To ensure that the new platform is sufficiently flexible and future-proof, the municipalities have decided to purchase it as a service rather than upgrade the current data hall.
