We look far ahead.

A long-term perspective, combined with long experience and innovative power, is at the core when we develop technology that will solve the biggest challenges in digitalising the public and private sectors.

There is safety in knowledge.

People are our greatest value. We have a team of experienced managers, professionals, and developers. Together, we have broad technological experience and are ready to handle complex digital issues together with our clients. For us, it is important that our knowledge is reused, further developed, and made available across areas of society – for the benefit of the client.

We have been here a long time.

Still, we are just getting started. We have a long investment horizon in both established companies and pioneering start-up companies. With our insight and experience in technology and software, we are a solid and future-oriented partner.

We develop technology for the next generation of welfare societies.

That is the core. That is why we are Kernel.
