The Enterprise Solutions business developed according to the plans, excluding a few exceptions, and grew moderately in 2011. Towards the end of the year, consumer caution increased in the general economy. Regarding major investment decisions in early 2012, slight delays are expected. Nevertheless, in the longer term, Digia forecasts that the demand for these solutions will remain high.
The demand for ERP systems has remained strong, and the business has grown steadily. Last year was characterised by marked growth in the role of industry-specific sector verticals. Digia's recent vertical deliveries include solutions for the retail and logistics sectors.
The demand for Digia’s integration solutions grew steadily in 2011 and growth is expected to continue. In particular, demand for service-oriented architecture (SOA) as well as event-driven architecture (EDA) delivery projects increased throughout all sectors.
