HiQ enters partnership for Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) with Ivar Jacobson International

As digitalization rapidly swoops over all companies and organizations, the need for frameworks for agile development becomes critically important. The step-change in capability however, when those principles are scaled, is mind-blowing! At HiQ we are a trusted partner to a vast majority of the large cap companies in the Nordics and we constantly strive to sharpen and develop our expertise in this area. Accordingly, HiQ has partnered up with the godfather of software engineering – Dr Ivar Jacobson – and his great team at Ivar Jacobson International.

“This is an important step in our development. Ivar Jacobson International is truly the epicenter of knowledge and experience in scalable agile development. To cross that with our vast competence in embedded development, digitalization and transformation, will make our offering within Research & Technology and Business Critical IT significantly stronger”, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO and President of HiQ.
