“The main focus of Sweden's participation in Expo 2010 in Shanghai is to support the Swedish business interests in the Chinese market,” says Patrik Boman, president and CEO of the Cybercom Group. “China is an important market for our larger customers, and Cybercom's business in China is growing. For Cybercom, providing the internal support portal that will be used by all participating Swedish companies and organisations during the 184-day expo period to plan meetings, logistics, and coordinate other important functions is a fantastic opportunity.”
The intranet portal developed by Cybercom was launched 2 November at the Swedish Expo Committee’s project management meeting in Shanghai. The portal provides tools for the over 75 companies and organisations that partner with the committee. Thanks to its open source solution, the portal offers great flexibility and scalability.
“We are delighted with the intranet portal that Cybercom delivered,” says Nina Ekstrand, deputy general commissioner for the Swedish Expo Committee. “It will serve as a central hub for the remaining project work in Sweden and China, and is a vital participant tool. The portal more than meets our requirements for functionality, usability and fast performance, which is important for us since it will host a lot of concurrent users. Specific security requirements were also fulfilled by Cybercom’s security experts. We’re very excited about opening the portal for our partners.”
“This is a prestigious project for us. We know that the users have very high expectations on functionality and accessibility," says Björn Elmberg, account manager at Cybercom Sweden East. “Our experience in digital solutions allows us to quickly familiarize ourselves with the customer's needs and find the most appropriate solutions in a cost-effective manner. By using Agile principles, our consultants have quickly implemented extensive functionality by utilising and integrating the most modern, robust and leading open source modules available.”
Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China takes place 1 May–31 October 2010 and is expected to be the largest world expo ever. So far, 225 countries and international organizations are registered to participate.
