Digital Vision for the Nordics


The Nordics are an absolute powerhouse of digital technologies. More than this, their progressive social agenda means that they have made many of the digital leaps in innovation ahead of other countries.

There is much to learn from the region, particularly how well they navigated the recent COVID-19 pandemic. When Atos published its report into the imperatives for society and business post COVID-19, I was not surprised to see that they dovetailed with the Nordics vision and policies – frictionless working, technology mastery and sustainable by purpose.

As leaders in decarbonized digital, we’re a perfect partner for Nordic enterprises and governments and believe we can learn from each other as we tackle the next stages of the digital revolution.

Digital transformation doesn’t stop, and we believe – thanks to strong, stable politics and societies – that the Nordic region can trial innovations for the better of society and become a global leader. Particularly in sustainable industry and through the creation of a model for better data equity between government, private sector and citizens, benefiting all parties.

In this paper we aim to deliver a vision on how to use emerging digital trends to improve enterprise competitiveness and effectiveness as well as to enable a connected and inclusive society.

We have highlighted for the Nordic region:

  • The importance of sustainability by design
  • The need to embrace emerging technologies and take advantage of the excellent network connectivity
  • The continued focus on protecting society and their way of life with digital as an enabler of progress.

We have no doubt that the Nordics will continue to be digital leaders within Europe. Our strong Nordic values and entrepreneurial spirit will have a positive impact on innovation.
