In a joint statement Kristian Hansen CEO of Genia and Carsten Weis CEO of Advania Denmark say:
“When IT operations and business operations are one and the same, it is the terms and focus of the business that apply to CIOs. Risks need to be mitigated proactively and effectively through increased agility, intelligent security, and the transition from capital-intensive IT functions to as-a-Service solutions. Allocating resources and managing administrative processes must be simplified, automated, and self-service enabled where possible. Stable IT operation and fast problem-solving demands 24/7 access to full-time experts and monitoring services - also when companies do not have full-time positions for this. Both our companies have seen significant increase in demand for our knowhow, solutions, and services. Together we can deliver more value to even the most demanding projects. CIOs can rest assured that both their current and future demands can be met by Advania Denmark."
