HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, has announced it has been selected by forest industry company, UPM, to provide end-to-end transformational IT services. The multi-year deal is the second renewal of the longstanding relationship between UPM and HCL, which began in 2011. Under the terms of the engagement, HCL has an expanded scope of work and will work alongside Nordic IT services company, Tieto, to create an end-to-end service layer as part of UPM’s multi-vendor sourcing strategy.
HCL will help UPM to migrate more services to the cloud and improve IT’s ability to respond quickly to changing business needs. It will also pursue large-scale modernisation and Digital Transformation initiatives to enhance the workplace experience for UPM’s more than 19,000 employees. In addition, HCL will leverage its significant next-generation services expertise to help UPM fast-track the adoption of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and chatbots to optimise its internal business processes.
HCL has worked with some of the largest organisations in the Nordics for more than a decade, helping them to drive strategic transformation initiatives and achieve their business goals through technology-led innovation and its global delivery capabilities.
