Tampere State of Mind – “Se on Moro!”
by Kimmo Syväjärvi, Senior Project Manager, Digitalist Group Tampere Office.
Digitalist Group has a long history in Tampere – the longest customer project has lasted over a decade. Currently our studio is located in the city center, in Technopolis Yliopistonrinne, in the heart of city and business area of Tampere.
To give a little background on the City of Tampere, it is one of the fastest growing centres in Finland. The third largest city in Finland and the largest inland city in the Nordic countries. Tampere region has a population of close to half a million and is renouned as a centre of cutting-edge technology, research, education, culture, sports and business.
Our team is made up of over twenty professionals: Front End Developers, Solution Architects, Embedded Software Developers, Web Developers, Quality Assurance Engineers, UX, UI and Service Designers, Project and Account Managers and Business Development Personnel. Our team is made up of colleagues from many different countries, including Belgium, India, England, America, Russia and of course Finland.
What we do
The Tampere studio has a strong focus on IoT with the whole team also learning Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, alongside our other development operations.
We help our customers to utilize their data and get more value from it. Working with our customers to create solutions combining measurements from different sources and visualize them on mobile devices. The team creates and/or select the appropriate devices, design and develop the complete end to end solution.
One of our clients already had a 3rd party system collecting necessary data, that alone was useless when not combined with process data. We created a solution to fetch the necessary data from their cloud, created a secure API for the client to upload their process related data and implemented a secured web based front-end to visualize and browse the data.
Our main strength lies in our ability to work collaboratively across studios. We are currently working on several projects based outside of Finland with a customer in the California and our Digitalist team in London.
As Steve Jobs said: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” This is what we believe in, here in Tampere.
