A Year of Challenges and Accomplishments
2022 was an eventful year for Oivan on our mission to be the digital force for good. The tragic European war that started in February cast a dark shadow on the world and has weighed heavily on our minds since.
Oivan’s Business Success, Key Projects and Accomplishments in 2022
On our business side, our highly international operational model, with the most production talent and leading clients outside of Europe, allowed us to maintain our seven-year streak of over 20% annual revenue growth.
Large-scale digital transformation projects, such as our work for the National Housing Company (NHC) in Saudi Arabia, critical operations teams, and deep-level cybersecurity work, kept us busy as ever.
A positive highlight was the rapid progress of our recently launched design business unit, which grew to over 15 people and currently works for international clients, such as the mobile operator AIS in Thailand.
A Bright Spot in a Year of Challenges
While Oivan’s remote-work-friendly operating model, Enhanced Distributed Teams (EDT), made us resilient against the adverse effects of Covid on our business performance, the downside was the inability to meet our colleagues in person. However, in the second half of 2022, the ease of travel restrictions allowed many of us to travel to our international offices and clients, bringing a new source of inspiration, innovation, and joy to our work.
Conference Attendance and Delegation Visits in 2022
We attended many top conferences, such as Web Summit, LEAP, Global Cybersecurity Forum, Bitcoin 2022, and SLUSH, and welcomed two high-level delegations from Saudi Arabia in Helsinki: In May, NHC’s CEO, His Excellency Mohammad Albuty, and the top leadership team visited us under bright spring skies to discuss our partnership’s future. In November, we received the Saudi Arabian business delegation led by His Excellency the Minister of Commerce, Dr. Majid bin Abdullah Al Qasabi to make progress on Finnish and Saudi business cooperation, facilitated by Business Finland.
Looking Ahead to 2023
We want to thank our valued clients for your trust and business. Our team is ready to work smart and hard to accomplish even bigger things in 2023 for our client’s benefit. We wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to a fantastic 2023.
