EVRY increases its investment in cloud infrastructure and partners with IBM

  • EVRY will invest substantially in its infrastructure business to accelerate transformation
  • EVRY combines its strong local knowledge and presence with IBM`s global cloud capabilities
  • Customers will benefit from a faster time-to-market for leading-edge infrastructure solutions
  • EVRY will continue to take full responsibility for customers and deliveries

As part of an accelerated transformation of the infrastructure business, EVRY and IBM have entered into an unique long-term partnership, which will significantly improve EVRY`s infrastructure offering to its customers. EVRY will continue to lead development of value-added infrastructure services and combine this with the use of IBM’s innovative cloud technology and global scale. 

Through the agreement, EVRY will partner with IBM for its basic infrastructure platform and IBM will play a key role in the transformation of EVRY`s basic infrastructure services to global platforms with proven methodology and global expertise.

As part of this accelerated transformation, EVRY will invest more than NOK 500 million to develop the best infrastructure solution in the Nordics. For the first time EVRY`s customers will have access to hybrid cloud solutions based on IBM`s Softlayer platform which will be installed in EVRY`s datacenter at Fet/Oslo. Additionally customers will enjoy a flexible infrastructure that will allow them to be even more agile in their digitalization.

“A leading infrastructure business is core to EVRY becoming a Nordic Champion. It is the foundation from which we build solutions that create business value and business outcomes for our customers. EVRY have started this transformation journey, but in order to deliver the best infrastructure solutions in the market, we need to accelerate the ongoing transformation of our infrastructure business”, comments Björn Ivroth, CEO of EVRY.

“We have selected IBM as a global service provider and as a service delivery model for our basic infrastructure business. Customers will benefit from a faster time-to-market for leading-edge infrastructure, including new cloud based solutions. This strategic move allows EVRY to focus on being a customer-centric organisation with focus on value-added services and solutions built on leading technology”, says CEO Björn Ivroth of EVRY.

“Our partnership demonstrates how IBM’s expertise, technology and services can help EVRY adapt to new market conditions and opportunities while having trusted infrastructure services supporting the ongoing operations,” said Martin Jetter, senior vice president, IBM Global Technology Services. “The Nordic region has always been at the forefront of adopting new technologies early and we are excited to work with EVRY as they accelerate the enablement of their clients to lead in the digital era. IBM’s unmatched IT Infrastructure and cloud capabilities provide a perfect foundation for EVRY to create and sell advanced cloud-based solutions for their customers across the full range of customers and industries they serve."
