The latest it-operations agreement with Tech Mahindra is a considerable investment in a general modernization of the technological platform to the benefit of our customers. We are happy to welcome them as our new neighbours in Ballerup, and we are sure that the new office will give the team – including 60 former KMD employees - the ideal setting for the development of competitive solutions for KMD,” says Executive Vice President i KMD, Michael Holmberg Andersen.
Vikash Chowdhary, Business Head of Tech Mahindra’s in Denmark agrees: "The fact that KMD trusts us to run the entire cloud infrastructure project is a great endorsement of the quality of work we have delivered and a testament to the success of the partnership between our two companies.”
“Denmark is an interesting and in many regards front running market. This is something our company would like to contribute to and benefit from through even more Danish engagements. Our new setup in Ballerup is a good starting point.”
