How it started …
Back in 2007 Climber’s founders, Jan Sipek and Michael Nordstrom, had a vision, similar to how the Industrial Revolution in the 18th Century changed business and society, data and the technology encompassing it would ultimately lead to the “data revolution” of our times. Ten years later, and that vision has been more than established. Data and the way in which we use and consume it has become the single most important success factor in business.

Climber – a part of Digia, the Finnish powerhouse

On 15 December 2020 Climber joined forces with the Finnish Data Utilisation Powerhouse Digia Plc, founded in 2005. Digia Plc acquired the entire share capital of Climber International AB, including their business in Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands.

Digia is a digitalization powerhouse based in Helsinki with more than 1,300 employees and customers worldwide. Their offering covers all layers of digitalization and data utilization: digital services, business systems, integration and API solutions as well as solutions for data management and analytics.
