Share this post:

As the coronavirus pandemic caused lockdowns around the world during the month of March, we were rapidly forced to work from home. To stay updated under these new circumstances, I turned to the use of the virtual tool of webinars and initiated a series titled How Nordic Companies Are Using IBM Solutions.

The webinars consisted of 11 sessions each with a focus on use cases from the Nordics, revolving around various reference stories to elaborate on IBM solutions that help companies gain tangible business value. Over the course of three months; from April to June, key experts and speakers within their respective fields provided insightful knowledge and inspiration on various subjects. This blog post is to provide an overview of the webinar series and let you know that they are still available on demand. Click the titles to register.
