About NDBS 2015

The management team of the Nordic Digital Business Summit would like to thank all sponsors, exhibitors, rising stars, partners, speakers, delegates and suppliers who joined us to make NDBS 2015 a resounding success. A special thanks goes out to our seminar hosts, Carl Wideman from Patron Sponsor DIGITICE Finland, and Jukka Kuusinen from Platinum Sponsor Tieto. A further special thanks is due to Hardware Hel for bringing the startup community together with NDBS for the first time so that young growth companies could meet and interact with experienced larger companies, which we have heard brought mutual benefit for many delegates.

If you didn’t manage to attend, or you’re interested in a few NDBS highlights, you can see our post-event press release here.

We value your feedback as we evaluate NDBS 2015 and consider improvements for NDBS 2016 so please get in touch if you have anything you would like to discuss.

Anastasia McAvennie, Managing Director, Onyx Group Oy – Event Director, Nordic Digital Business Summit.

“I guess it’s a sign of excellent networking event when – during the day – you do not have time to sit down and follow even a single presentation. Lots of talk and interesting contacts.” Tero Tuononen, CIO, CSC – IT Center for Science

    Cole Crawford, CEO at Vapor IO

    We’ve all witnessed the smart device craze and the growing IOT impact but what happens to our physical world when we enter the era of the yottabyte? A brave new world is upon us. We’ll explore the impact of smart everything and how we’ll have to innovate in order to keep innovating.

  • 10:00 - Bringing next-generation threat prevention to the data center

    René Bonvanie, Chief Marketing Officer, Palo Alto Networks
    Public and private clouds are getting a big boost as new innovations in network security extend what was once only available in the physical world, to the virtual. With the recent string of targeted attacks it's never been more critical that you build an effective strategy that extends the same levels of security used on your physical network to your virtual network.

  • 09:20 - The Era of Living Services

    Phillip Lindberg, Design Director, Fjord – Design and Innovation from Accenture Interactive

    You have heard of the Internet of Things, but how will businesses and brands use it? How will health services, transportation, insurance, utilities and security companies, for example, evolve to match our increasingly liquid demands and expectations in a world where almost everything is digitized?

  • 09:45 - Keynote: The SENSEable City - How sensors & complex big data are changing urban life

    Dr. Marguerite Nyhan, SENSEable City Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
    As layers of networks and digital information blanket our urban space, a new approach to the study of cities is emerging. The way we describe and understand the urban environment is being radically transformed. The mission of the Senseable City Lab is to anticipate these changes and study them from a critical point of view. In the context of smart cities, networks of sensors can offer fine grained information within cities. By understanding urban dynamics in the context of behaviour, mobility, the environment and commerce, the Senseable City Lab aims to improve the design of cities and the quality of life of urban populations for future generations.
