“This award belongs to the entire Business Technology community. Our way of working has always had community at its heart: the value we create comes through collaboration and co-creation with our customers. For example the IT Standard for Business framework, which we have developed together with our customers, is freely available to anyone as a tool to lead digitalization and create new business in the future,” says Sofigate CEO Sami Karkkila.
