Swedish companies digitally weak

A study carried out by Fujitsu, and presented at Davos, shows that Swedish companies are lagging behind in terms of digitalisation. The report shows 52 percent of the 153 Swedish decision-makers who took part in the study consider the digital strategy in their company to be unclear and confusing. “We have infrastructure and networks that make it possible to work digitally but we do not have the knowledge to benefit from the technology,” says Karin Scheil Jonsson, MD of Fujitsu Sweden.

One explanation could be that there has been less demand from consumers in Sweden, compared to, for example, Germany. Another reason is uncertainty about who has control over digital projects.

Jacob Wallenberg, chair of Investor, says, “It is clear that we, on the board, must spend more time working on this than we have done previously.”
