About the Customer

Headquartered in Espoo, Finland, HMD Global Oy is the new home of Nokia phones and tablets. HMD designs and markets a range of smartphones and feature phones targeted at a range of consumers and price points.

Scope and Challenges

To support the company’s new business model, moving from in-house manufacturing to an outsourcing model, HMD Global’s ‘Project Polaris’ was launched to reduce IT costs while enabling a large business transformation from on-premise ERP to a new cloud-based architecture.

Outcome and Implications

SAP Business by Design, a cloud solution covering financials, supply chain, and indirect sourcing, was chosen as the best fit.

The solution was rolled out in 33 legal entities in 30 countries in nine months using the SAP Activate methodology (formerly SAP Launch), an agile implementation approach that was recommended by implementation partner Sofigate Oy (former Headstart Oy) to secure quick wins while the business model evolved.

HMD Global managed to significantly overachieve its original target of 50% reduction in IT costs thanks to the solution and an amazingly committed and motivated team.


"HMD Global has been aiming to build a light and agile information management business from the start. A cloud-based SaaS ERP application makes this possible. SAP Business ByDesign Cloud ERP covers the needs of a global business in different countries and provides standardized business processes for use by different unitsIt also provides us with analytics and mobile applications that are part of a modern and fast-paced mobile work organization." - said Jussi Sorvali, CIO at HMD Global.

"Using the Pilvet Application Agility Implementation Model, we can quickly and step-by-step in multinational groupings. The advantage of cloud-based applications is their scalability, so in addition to basic functionality, we can easily deploy new functionality as needed. In addition, cloud solutions are updated quarterly, so we always have the latest software and the latest functionality. "continues Sorvali.
