We are proud to announce our first 6 silver sponsors: KMD, NETS, VP, Politikens Fond, NorduNet and e-boks:
Lars Monrad-Gylling, CEO, KMD: ”We in KMD are proud to sponsor the conference ‘History of Nordic Computing (HiNC4)’. Our company has actively participated in created and expanding the Danish welfare technology. Because of this we think it is obvious that we support the HiNC4 and in this way contrbute to the dissemination of know-how and experiences which will help support the on going development of digital welfare solutions in the Nordic countries”
Mette Kampsvåg, CEO of Nets: Nets focuses on handling digital values – that is digital money, digital information and digital identities. Since late 1960s, we have been part of the digitisation of the Nordic region and we have played a pivotal role in the development of the Danish and Norwegian payment infrastructure. Historical awareness is fundamental to ensure a continued development of value-adding IT services and the digitisation of the Nordic region, and, therefore, Nets gladly supports the History of Nordic Computing conference (HiNC4).
VP SECURITIES A/S in Copenhagen, was, as early as 1983, the first Central Securities Depository in the world to digitise all Danish bonds – in 1988 all Danish shares followed. In the fall of 1984 the Norwegian Central Securities Depository bought a copy of VP’s CSD-system. VP has since played an active role, and has a strong desire to contribute to standardisation and digitisation in Europe. Niels Olsen, CEO of VP SECURITIES, welcomes the great interest and look forward to letting VP contribute as a sponsor and speaker on HiNC4 in Copenhagen
NORDUnet is the Nordic Infrastructure for Research & Education. NORDUnet is a joint collaboration by the 5 Nordic National Research and Education Networks in Denmark (DeIC), Finland (Funet), Iceland (RHnet), Norway (Uninett) and Sweden (SUNET) and operates a world-class Nordic and International network and eInfrastructure service for the Nordic research and educational community.
Since it started in 2001, the story of e-Boks A/S has moved in one direction only: forwards
The idea behind e-Boks is to increase the efficiency of digital mail distribution between authorities, companies and private mail recipients, meaning lower postage costs, better service and not the least less strain on the environment.
e-Boks has built up a huge experience with secure and efficient digital document management and has today over 8 million users in Europe with a distribution of 205 million documents. In Scandinavia, there are currently more than 22,000 public and private sector senders. The large number of documents sent are obviously of benefit to those on the receiving end, as they have all their digital documents consolidated in one and the same secure place – inside e-Boks. At the other end, senders save large amounts of money on handling and postage costs.
Focus in 2014 is to obtain the same success in Norway and Sweden as in Denmark.
