There is a significant amount of technology and R&D expertise in the Oulu region. That is why it continues to be one of Nokia's key global R&D sites, Dr. Kai Öistämö, Executive Vice President of Nokia Devices Finland said in publicity.
”We have experience in locating foreign companies to Oulu. We can offer very highly educated people, great start-ups, competitive cost levels and longstanding R&D possibilities with our networks, including universities worldwide,” says Director Pauliina Pikkujämsä, Invest In Oulu.
The City of Oulu has boosted the growth of hitech companies for 30 years.
One of the projects has been the setting up of a technology park which today has about 6000 people. The city will assure that its people will prosper in a very safe and well developed society surrounded by a beautiful natural environment which can be enjoyed in all four seasons. For example there are over 300 kilometres of cycle paths for biking all year round.
Within the past year Capricode, a Mobile Device Management (MDM) company from Oulu, has proved its SyncShield mobile device management technology as being one of the cutting edge technologies in Europe. Simultaneously the number of business customers using SyncShield through this reseller network has been growing at a promising rate. The next natural step for the following year will be to expand the reseller network to central Europe.
”SyncShield has been praised for its usability, reliability and ease of implementation. In addition, SyncShield is uniquely suitable for productised mobile device management services offered by service providers. These characteristics make SyncShield a winning remote management solution which has the potential of becoming the world’s leading solution”, says Capricode’s CEO Jonny Kaarlenkaski.
Advertising agencies offer a growing variety of digital marketing communication services for their clients as marketing moves to the Internet. The tools used to make these services reality are often chosen on a case-by-case basis, and the agency ends up using a huge number of tools which take time to learn to use and master effectively. Finland-based software company Koodiviidakko Oy has launched a one-stop-shop product portfolio for advertising agency customer projects.
We are looking for more partners worldwide to sell this portfolio to advertising agencies locally in several countries. Advertising agencies will acquire a licence to use this web-based package, says Managing Director Samuli Tursas.
