Siloed data, complex infrastructure
In 2016, Stockmann began to evaluate better ways to engage and serve its customers. Rather than investing in multiple separate solutions, they wanted a unified approach to gain transparency on customer data across their entire organization, and to build a foundation that could withstand scalable solutions and the passage of time. Stockmann saw cooperation with Fluido and the Salesforce ecosystem as the best step forward on their transformation journey.
In March, I am embarking on a trip together with our friends from Salesforce to Ghana to support the Adanu non-profit organization in building schools and equipping them with computers. At Fluido, we have been supporting Adanu previously by donating our old laptops that were refurbished for kids in Ghana. When the opportunity to contribute even more to supporting this organization came along, I immediately jumped at it; and I am glad that Fluido has also decided to continue supporting this cause.

MTV is a Finnish media company with roots firmly anchored in the early television days of 1950s Finland. MTV was one of the first commercial television companies in Europe — only ITV in the UK and RTL in Central Europe were established earlier.
This once-small startup has grown into a media company that broadcasts news and entertainment, and creates new experiences for viewers 24/7. MTV3, Sub and AVA are free channels popular among viewers throughout Finland. The programs on the MTV channels can be viewed online via MTV Katsomo, while paid content is accessible through C More streaming service or by subscribing to channel packages via operators. The content includes entertainment from Finland, the Nordics and Hollywood, and of course live sports broadcasts.
The main focus of MTV in the 2010s was establishing a stronger connection with the Finnish population and bringing the MTV media family to the attention of content producers and advertisers.
The new MTV offers Finland the best in content and experience regardless of time and place —meeting the individual needs of almost everyone. MTV is owned by Swedish media company Bonnier AB.
