Tieto and Ruukki extend cooperation through new three-year contract


The new contract covers Ruukki’s Server Operations and Capacity Management Services. Tieto has already earlier been Ruukki’s main supplier in this area and will continue to manage these services until spring 2017.

For Ruukki, the cooperation provides both increased flexibility and lower costs. “Ruukki’s IT is looking for flexibility and agility in the current economic climate. Capacity Management Services is a very good example of that,” says Ismo Platan from Ruukki.

“We are both happy and proud that Ruukki has chosen to prolong the good cooperation that we have built up during several years. When analyzing Ruukki’s current environment and making this proposal, we made sure to answer both present and future customer requirements and demands, providing an excellent basis for long and successful collaboration,” says Juha Anttila from Tieto.

The contract also gives Ruukki possibilities for increased usage of Tieto’s services such as Tieto Cloud Server, which is part of Tieto’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering.
