"This is the largest public framework agreement that Cybercom has won so far," says Anders Franzen, Vice MD of Cybercom Sweden. "We see tremendous business potential, particularly in cloud services where security and usability are key issues."
Cybercom is one of six preferred suppliers chosen by the Legal, Financial, and Administrative Services Agency to supply e-services to municipalities, counties, and authorities throughout Sweden. These electronic services aid individuals, businesses, and organizations. The agreement also covers infrastructure services for secure information exchange and verification of electronic ids, as well as services to ensure secure information management inside authorities.
The framework agreement will be valid for four years with a one-year extension option and is subject to appeal. The total volume for the chosen preferred suppliers is potentially valued in the billions (SEK). Cybercom's range of offerings include more than 200 different services designed to meet all the future requirements expected to be placed on IT suppliers by the public sector.
"Buying cloud services is simpler than traditional business models," says Pär Abelson, Public sector business area manager at Cybercom. "Cybercom sees this framework generating significant business and helping the public sector to quickly integrate modern IT support into its existing operations."
Cybercom has strong partners in this framework agreement at both the national and international level. Google, Salesforce and QBranch are a few of Cybercom's major framework partners.
"This framework agreement will be Cybercom Sweden's top priority. Our new consolidated Sweden organization will enable us to deliver highly competitive services in large-scale projects," says Peter Keller-Andreasen, Cybercom Vice president and managing director for Cybercom Sweden.
