New Area Manager System & Applications!
We are excited to announce that, due to our remarkable growth of 1 063% over the last 4 years, and still expanding, We are fortunate to welcome Jonas Persson as an Area Manager System & Applications. Jonas will support as well as build his successful (S&A) team helping our clients with System & Applications, IT Management and other related opportunities as well as challenges in Hisland’s journey towards SMART CITIES.
Jonas brings +20 years of experience to the Hisland family from a career in large corporation companies (HCL, Volvo Group, IBM, PostNet, Posten IT, Lindex) within the IT industry. He started his career as system engineer and with persistence grew in his role to roles as teamleader and moved to new areas, joining IBM, where he was trusted with the role as Operation and Project Leader. After IBM he joined Volvo IT (part of Volvo Group) as an SQL Server Specialist. During his 10years in Volvo Group he developed and was trusted with the role as Global Product Manager SQL Server and developed a global product team based in countries such as US, France, India, Belgium, Brazil, and of-course Sweden, delivering 15 000 databases for internal and external customers. His career within Volvo continued supporting global Enterprise infrastructure environments for both internal and external customers to Volvo Group.
Jörgen Brörk, CEO and founder of Hisland Group, says quote: “Jonas Persson is a key person in our journey towards becoming a Solution Provider towards SMART CITIES supporting our customers challenges with expertise and system knowledge. We are proud and inspired having Senior players like Jonas as a Hislander.”
Jonas grew up in the ”tiny” town of Alingsås, close to Gothenburg and attended Göteborg Universitet. His background is system engineering. When not immersed in Software & applications, IT and System Architect opportunities, Jonas spends time with his wife Marie and son’s Ludvig and Sigvard, and they all love to travel and boat life in the summertime. Further Jonas believes in building relationships through personal interactions, so send him a lunch-invitation on his LinkedIn and make sure you follow Hisland Solutions as well and our development towards creating a better world with technology!
Autonomous cars a threat or an opportunity?
Hisland is closely supporting the #AI technical and business development part of the automotive sector and we are experiencing an exponential development within the automotive area, especially within electrification and #autonomous technology challenging traditional business models. This is partly due to the real-world testing companies pushing traditional models driven and today lead by companies like Waymo and Tesla.
Hisland believe it is of high importance for all markets to try to understand and follow both market trends and technology evolution. Year to date Tesla has recorded over 3 billion miles of Autopilot data for use in its research.
How can this extensive data knowledge impact your existing business model(s) (i.e. transport, taxi, public transportation etc. food delivery sector etc.)? Can you adapt to this threat/opportunity? Is this perhaps a part of the Smart City opportunity and challenge?
We believe that a good starting point is to engage or start following traditional business adapting to this trend and learn as well as start follow companies such as Waymo, Einride, Tesla, etc.
An amazing video shows what Tesla #autonomousvehicle / Autopilots neural network sees on the road.
Tesla says, quote: "Our per-camera networks analyze raw images to perform semantic segmentation, object detection and monocular depth estimation. Our birds-eye-view networks take video from all cameras to output the road layout, static infrastructure and 3D objects directly in the top-down view. Our networks learn from the most complicated and diverse scenarios in the world, iteratively sourced from our fleet of nearly 1M vehicles in real time. A full build of Autopilot neural networks involves 48 networks that take 70,000 GPU hours to train. Together, they output 1,000 distinct tensors (predictions) at each timestep."
However Austin Russel, CEO of LIDAR maker Luminar says, quote:
“While Tesla will certainly continue to introduce better assisted driving features over the coming years, true autonomy is a completely different game altogether and requires a completely different approach,” said Austin Russell, “There’s no longer a backup driver, hands on the wheel, taking over when things frequently go awry. No doubt it will get [twice, three times] or maybe even [10 times] better over the vehicle’s life cycle. But for autonomy, it has to be, quite literally, near perfect ... to achieve safety greater than that of the average human driver.”
We at Hisland continue to be part of the movement, development and of course closely follow the (disruptive) technology race.
Hisland Solutions proudly presents our new Finance, Project and Sales Coordinator! Danielle Åkesson has been assigned, as a strategic resource, to develop and coordinate Hislands Solutions transformation and focus towards new challenges and continued growth.
In recent years, Danielle has been a key person within the organization Norex International AB, with great insight into the entire Group's operations as a CEO Assistant. There, she had a multidimensional role as CEO assistant, project coordinator, responsible for coordination of salaries and all other HR-related tasks, events, etc.
Danielle has also played a central coordinating role in the implementation of new business systems (CRM), company acquisitions; establish communication plans, integration processes and external communication in general terms. Her experience with fast-growing companies but also her understanding of a process approach is longed-for and an important strategic puzzle piece for Hisland. Danielle's experience as a consultant at Volvo Financial Services and insight into Corporate Governance give us opportunities to gain and develop an even better structure in the management group and board work.
- "I believe that by lifting each other up as colleagues and working together as a team, the business can and will reach the desired heights," says Danielle Åkesson.
Her areas of responsibility, in our new organization, will be in PMO (Project Management Officer), FINANCE and MAD (Market Admin). This means that she will have a broad role commuting between CAO (Jörgen) and CMO (Kenneth). Danielle starts her job at Hisland Solutions on the 9th of January. The idea is to strike a balance between the strategic work and the operational where the strategic has been left aside for a while.
“The consulting industry is undergoing a major change. Hisland will continue its journey and undergo several important transformations in the coming years. We want to continue developing ourselves as a modern innovative consultancy company with delivering front edge experts that delivers potent holistic solutions to cities. We are confident that, with Danielle on board, we will continue this journey by further strengthening our positions with our employees and the strategy we are jointly laying down," says Jörgen BJÖRK, CEO & President of Hisland Group.
