Finland’s leading cloud-native development and design company SC5 joins Nordcloud in building Europes leading cloud enabler. SC5 will be renamed Nordcloud Solutions in January 2018.

Nordcloud has combined its previously independent cloud infrastructure and cloud application development businesses in order to provide full-service cloud transformations to its customers. With deep expertise in transforming enterprise IT operations to a cloud-first model, Nordcloud has seen more than 70% year-on-year growth for the past consecutive five years – making it one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

“After an enterprise has adopted the cloud-first model, all their new applications will be cloud-powered. This is the driving force behind our decision to combine our businesses into Nordcloud,” said CEO Esa Kinnunen. “Now we can help even more of our customers move quickly and efficiently to a cloud-first model for both their IT operations and application development. We serve our customers all the way from design to implementation and maintenance of cloud infrastructure and services.”

With more than 250 cloud experts across Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, Nordcloud can offer the full range of cloud-integration services for any international enterprise.

As the cloud services market is predicted to grow to almost USD 250 billion in 2017**, and with 48 of the Fortune Global 50 companies having announced cloud adoption plans***, Nordcloud expects to continue growing its IT services business substantially within the coming years.
