Business Group Lead, Hybrid IT, Big Data and IoT at Microsoft Oy

Henriikka Åkerman is responsible for Microsoft Finland’s cloud and data platform solutions, which translate to business concepts like Hybrid IT, Big Data and Internet of Things. She has long experience with Microsoft, previously with Microsoft’s solutions for enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management. During her 15 years in the ICT industry, Henriikka has adopted a role of “translator” between technology and business needs.
