Einar & Partners Luxembourg

Einar & Partners launches in Luxembourg

Starting Q2 in 2022, Einar & Partners are happy to announce that we’re officially launching our Luxembourg office to innovate with customers- and partners in the French- and German speaking markets of EU. With a long track record of success in ITOM transformations, the new office aims to bring market leading expertise in ITOM- & AIOps. Both in- and outside of Luxembourg.

Targeting new markets- & verticals

According to many professionals, Luxembourg is the beating heart of finance in Europe boasting major banks and active innovators. With local expertise around regulations and data security, the office of Einar & Partners will serve a wider base of customers and companies in the finance sector of Luxembourg. Additionally, the expansion into Luxembourg will act as the delivery-center for the offerings of Einar & Partners in the French- and German speaking parts of Europe.

Officially founded in October 2020, Einar & Partners have seen major successes in the areas of AIOps- & ITOM already. With a deep commitment to engage with the ITOM community, as well as the formation of strategic partnerships and alliances, Einar & Partners have experienced an impressive growth trajectory.

Michel Conter, the local managing partner at Einar & Partners Luxembourg, explains:

“With a rock-solid reputation in the ServiceNow community, and our pin-pointed focus on ITOM strategy, we’re excited to expand into new regions and verticals from Luxembourg. Having already worked on some of the largest ITOM transformations in the greater region, we believe our local presence will make a big difference.”

AI Operations + Luxembourg is the perfect combo

The Grand Duchy is the gateway of choice to the European market, and the country is hosting more than 350 active start-ups within FinTech, IT and AI – as well as over 15 incubators. For Einar & Partners, who is also involved in ITOM for public sector as well as finance, the Luxembourg launch makes perfect sense.

The aim of Einar & Partners Luxembourg is to grow rapidly the coming next 2 years and refine our offerings especially in the verticals of Finance and Public Sector. With experience having worked with some of the largest banks already in EU, as well as with public sector in Sweden and Norway, the expansion into Luxembourg constitutes the next step.

Einar & Partners reveals research unit for AIOps & ServiceNow

Starting Q4 2021, Einar & Partners are unveiling a unique research unit focused on the industry of AIOps with special attention on the ServiceNow ecosystem. According to valuate reports market research, the global AIOps Market size is projected to reach USD 23.9 Billion by 2027, from USD 4.0 Billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 30% during 2021-2027.

Bringing transparency to promises of ROI

AIOps is a fairly new terminology coined by Gartner in 2017, and with such a significant new market also comes big promises. Today, many decision-makers and IT leaders ask themselves if AIOps truly gives return on investment, if the products are mature enough, and what is the impact of implementing AIOps across the IT org?

Vendors have many promises of what AIOps can do—such as lower time-to-resolution for incidents, improving service quality, faster root cause analysis, and ultimately decreasing outages. Yet, the cost for implementing AIOps across an IT org is high, and the time-to-value is not always clear.

The Einar & Partners research unit focuses on independently researching the impact of AIOps on IT and the business. The research unit will verify and measure ROI, common challenges, time-to-value, implementation timelines and other important variables when considering an AIOps project.

Behind the research unit are leading industry experts in AIOps as well as volunteers.

Akif Baser, the new R&D Lead at Einar & Partners, explains:

“We are currently developing methodologies for data measuring, collection and presentation. Our research unit aims to provide industry-leading data that decision-makers directly can use as a basis for their AIOps budget- & project decisions.”“On a long-term basis, we aim to connect academic institutions in the Netherlands to assist in analyzing market trends and new innovative ways AIOps can help.” – Akif adds.

ServiceNow Benchmarks, Reports & Applied Research for ITOM & AIOps

One of the key players in the AIOps market is ServiceNow. With multiple acquisitions done in the past 24 months, such as Loom systems and Lightstep, the platform is on a trajectory to become one of the leading vendors for AIOps.

ServiceNow today has a strong IT Operations portfolio, namely their famous ITOM suite (IT Operations Management). The company is projected to hit a subscription revenue of 15B$ within the next five years – of which ITOM & AIOps is a significant piece.

The Einar & Partners research unit will be among the first research bodies that divert special attention to the ServiceNow ITOM & AIOps ecosystem. The goal is to provide the market with benchmarks, analysis, strategic workshops and in-depth content around ServiceNow ITOM & AIOps.

“Our content has already received an enormously positive response in the ServiceNow space, and now we want to take our material around ITOM to an even higher level.” – Says Alexander Ljungström, founder of Einar & Partners.

Einar & Partners adds ITOM expertise to The Cloud People in new partnership

Einar & Partners have entered a partnership with The Cloud People, a ServiceNow- & Google partner based in the Nordics. The partnership will strengthen the mutual cooperation between the companies in the areas of modern IT Operations powered by Machine Learning & AI.

The Cloud People – Smart Resourcing

The Cloud People approaches projects and engagement through a new method of “smart resourcing” for consulting – leading to the right skills getting involved at the right time. The methodology aligns well with the philosophy of Einar & Partners, where we believe in pinpointed and target efforts as a good substitute for more traditional implementations.

ITOM Expertise to the Nordic market

The partnership’s goal is to expose Einar & Partners resources (with their unique industry insight and experience in ITOps) towards the eco-system of The Cloud People.

The IT landscape is growing more complex, with IT shifting more workloads to the cloud and experiencing a surge in modern DevOps practices. As a result, the demand for strategies that reduce complexity is massive, with machine learning & AI knocking on the doorstep.

This is where Einar & Partners meet with The Cloud People, providing A+ ServiceNow ITOM resources to companies who want to simplify the nature of their ITOps.

Below are some comments from the leadership team. 

“We’re thrilled to expose our expertise to the network of The Cloud People. But perhaps more importantly, we feel there’s fundamentally a strong common ground between how projects should be delivered, with a no-fuzz approach and full transparency. It will be an exciting future, that’s for sure.”

Alexander Ljungström, Managing Director @ E&P 

“The Cloud People are all about finding the right talent for the right job. With the partnership of Einar & Partners, we are taking our ServiceNow ITOM skills and capabilities to a whole new level. We look forward to working with Einar & Partners team to bring added value to our customers around the world.”
