Tieto delivers IT services to the county council Västernorrland in Sweden
The Swedish county council Landstinget Västernorrland has chosen Tieto as supplier of a wide range of IT services. The total value is worth around 300 MSEK, of which Tieto’s part is more than 200 MSEK. The delivery will be done in collaboration with our supplier Konica Minolta | Koneo. Tieto is the contractor and has overall responsibility for the entire delivery. The agreement is for five years with an option for a further two years.
Landstinget Västernorrland has previously hosted most of its operational IT services itself. By choosing Tieto as its provider of IT services, the county council can now significantly increase IT security via operation in dual data centres. Tieto will provide hosting and monitoring of applications, servers and communications network as well as local support for users. Services for IT workstations, printers and Service Desk will also be provided.
By outsourcing its IT services to Tieto, more focus can be applied to the authority’s core activity. Other benefits from outsourcing includes better accessibility for the county council IT users and also access to in-depth expertise in the most complicated parts of the current IT delivery. The collaboration with Tieto will also allow greater flexibility in relation to changes in the council’s operations.
“Tieto is delighted and proud that Västernorrland has selected us as its new IT provider. This contract further strengthens our position as a leading provider to the county council sector” stated Mats Brandt, head of Tieto’s public sector business in Sweden.
“We look forward to working with Tieto and seeing what they will contribute in the development of the county council’s IT Operations, says Bertil Svelander, IT Manager at Landstinget Västernorrland”
