Guest Blog - Exporting world class IIot and Big Data solutions from Finland

Every now and then, there are major shifts in the basic fundamentals of how business is being done locally and internationally. And this is exactly what is going on now. A triplet, consisting of digitalization, mass connectivity and big data utilization, is driving for more efficient use of resources, creating new products and services and giving birth to innovative new business models. This all creates a need for faster development, more agile solutions and in-depth customer understanding for companies to stay competitive.

For Finnish companies, the basic elements for succeeding internationally is rather solid. They are leading the way in utilizing the growing amount of data in industrial processes. Globally, Finland ranks 3rd in the utilization of the Internet of Things (IoT). Furthermore, we are number one in the degree of digitalization (Digibarometer 2016).

Usually, large multinational ICT companies have a somewhat standardized offering, yet with limited flexibility. This creates an opportunity for smaller, specialized companies to offer very unique sets of solutions. Though it can be hard for smaller companies to break through and land international deals. This is where Finnish way of working comes into play – a collaboration between companies, universities and public sector in the fields of digitalization, Industrial Internet and Big Data. Together we are bigger and stronger and can get those international deals.

Capitalise Your Knowledge - growth program (CyK), managed by Finpro, boosts Finnish Industrial Internet and Big Data companies’ international business with a common ingredient: pooling the expertise and knowledge of the companies and that of Finpro network. The growth program focus is on supporting Finnish companies to land those international deals. The program is an enabler, providing opportunities for reaching potential customers, generating business leads and providing support on the path to international markets. We are very happy to work with Distence, a good example of a Finnish company with strong customer focused offering backed with solid business value and passion to succeed in international markets.

So, if you are working for a Finnish SME in the field of IoT and big data and are feeling the challenge of internationalization in your guts, do not be worried, Finpro is there to help you. Our first advice for the companies is to be very focused on customer value. Next, is to start developing and piloting and then proceed to commercializing and most importantly, start cooperating together with other companies to create globally competitive solutions. Finpro is here to support you in all those steps to bring growth to Finland.
