The City of Helsinki has implemented Bullion for SAP HANA, with the help of Atos as its IT partner, to help cut costs, boost security and offer flexibility for the city's management.

The City of Helsinki started working with Atos almost five years ago when it opened up an eco-efficient data centre in the city.

“We are pleased to be able to extend the existing service agreement with Atos," Jaakko Salavuo, CIO, City of Helsinki said. "With the contract, we can ensure accurate and cost-efficient continuation of SAP services to the city stakeholders and enable the deployment of new HANA-based SAP technologies."

The City of Helsinki is one of the first Atos customers to be using the SAP Business Suite on HANA on the cloud platform. It will ensure the organisation is future-proofed and its real-time computing features will ensure the area is using big data to its full capabilities.

“This contract proves that Atos provides a unique SAP HANA end-to-end offering – also on the Finnish market – based on its large experience in SAP projects associated with bullion unique features," said Harri Saikkonen, Managing Director at Atos in Finland.

"We are extremely proud to support the City of Helsinki on its digital transformation and are confident that the excellence of the bullion server will provide a secure and reliable platform for the customer’s SAP HANA –based future roadmap."

The City of Helsinki is embracing new cloud technologies to help it boost its infrastructure at a time where security, IT modernisation and big data are paramount to help it offer more services to citizens.

“It is truly our pleasure to acknowledge that the City of Helsinki has an advanced and candid view on benefiting from new technology SAP has brought to market," Taira Tepponen, Country Manager at SAP in Finland Oy added. "Atos as our global partner has proven global capabilities and it’s great to see the company as a forerunner also in Finland.”
