HiQ has been recognized as a Representative Vendor in the April 2016 Market Guide for Hybrid Integration Platform-Enabling Technologies by Gartner, Inc - the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.

“We believe being acknowledged by Gartner is a clear sign that we are doing the right things, and creating value that is relevant not only in the Nordics but also on a global level,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ.

Gartner delivers technology-related insight that supports organisations worldwide in making the right decisions. The Gartner Market Guide focuses on emerging trends and helps companies to understand new and developing markets and enabling technologies. In recent research Gartner has identified HiQ as a representative vendor within the iPaaS category, which focuses on integration platforms.

“We see hybrid integration as vital for all companies pursuing natural growth and organizational flexibility. The interest for this approach is growing strongly, as is the demand for our services, which feels great,” says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

HiQ has vast experience and deep know-how in helping companies to digitalise their business and their processes. One tool that HiQ uses is the FRENDS Hybrid Integration Platform that is developed by HiQ and designed to make complex business processes smooth and simple. For over 20 years, both large and small companies across vertical markets have depended on FRENDS for efficient and streamlined integration solutions.

”The digital and connected business operations of today require frictionless sharing and flow of data – between networks, applications, processes, and people, not to mention IoT. This is something that we can create with the help of, for example, FRENDS,” says Jukka Rautio. 

“HiQ’s driving force is to simplify and improve people’s lives with the help of technology. One way of doing this is by helping our clients to streamline their operations, for example through smart integration, in order to reach better quality and competitive edge,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
