Sigma Technology and Malmö University Start a Licentiate Project in Data-Driven Systems

Malmo University Sigma Technology IoTaP

Sigma Technology Solutions and the IoTaP (Internet of Things and People) research center at Malmö University have started a research project in the area of data-driven systems and business intelligence. Gustav Erling will perform a three-year program combining research with consultant work assignments.

The IoTaP research center is a part of Malmö University and focuses on making the Internet of Things useful and usable. The three-year licentiate project is within the framework of the industrial graduate school Data-Driven Systems and is a way to connect academia with business. Sigma Technology Solutions will contribute with experience in business intelligence and data analytics areas. Sigma will also act as a business enabler through industrial mentoring and networking activities. The project is partly financed by the Knowledge Foundation.

Gustav Erling has made a journey from software developer to data and analytics expert at leading telecommunication companies. His recent work includes driving a project to make a software development organization of 500 people adopt a data-driven way of working. Gustav’s professional experience combined with his knowledge of Big Data and Machine Learning made him a perfect candidate for the project.

During these three years, Gustav will be employed at Sigma Technology Solutions combining research with consultant work assignments. The scientific focus of the program will be on data-driven systems and decision making in the analytics value chain.

“Today, many organizations use data analytics as a supportive function. In the coming future, however, data and analytics will become major contributors to business development. According to Gartner, 80% of organizations will invest in data literacy development by 2020. We believe that cooperation with IoTaP is a great way for us and our clients to prepare for this change,” says Robert Åberg, Unit Manager in Software Design & Digital Development at Sigma Technology Solutions.
