YIT CORPORATION News, February 4, 2019 at 10:00 

YIT and Telia have signed an extensive, long-term agreement on the centralisation, development and maintenance of YIT’s digital services. The agreement includes comprehensive networking, capacity, data security and mobile device services in all YIT’s operating locations and eleven operating countries.

“After the merger of YIT and Lemminkäinen, we were searching for a reliable partner for the harmonisation and standardisation of our basic IT infrastructure services. Telia’s network services offer the same end user experience in all countries,” says Esa Nykänen Senior Vice President, CIO at YIT.

Telia’s solutions enable smoother deployment of cloud services at YIT.

“This agreement is significant for both companies. Key aspects of our cooperation are flexibility and the scalability of services to meet the needs of YIT’s international operations. We will also strongly invest in developing technological innovations together,” says Jari Rapo, Vice President, Head of Enterprise Business at Telia Finland.
