CASE STUDY | SEB
SEB started its development team with INSCALE in 2009. Originally employing three developers, the team has since grown to 90 IT professionals. They are recruited and facilitated by INSCALE. The team works in a very agile way with SEB colleagues in Europe. Hear VP IT and Offshore Manager Jakob D Nielsen discuss how SEB’s team was built in Malaysia and how it cooperates daily with colleagues in Northern Europe.
Seb's team at INSCALE:
SEB found it difficult to recruit and retain talented developers at their office in Denmark. Yet software development was becoming increasingly important in order to execute SEB’s business strategy.
Our colleagues in Europe and Malaysia work together daily, as equals. In our very Agile environment, everybody has a “fix it” attitude. Our Malaysian team has launched strategic new products that they built entirely themselves. With the Malaysian team comprising 14 different nationalities, we have truly created an international working environment with the best qualified.
On Mainframe, we have managed to build a capacity in Malaysia that eliminates the “generational threat” we had in Denmark due to an aging Mainframe workforce.
