HCL In Norway
Norway’s citizens are among the most wired people on the planet: 94% of households enjoy Internet access, and more than 50% have mobile broadband access. This level of adoption and sophistication of information technology in Norway is mirrored in its companies and the country’s robust IT sector— a crucial part of Norway’s highly productive economy.
As Norwegian companies have become increasingly global, they have embraced IT outsourcing. HCL, a prominent IT company in Norway, has been operating in this region since 2008, serving Norwegian companies through an office in Oslo and a Delivery Center in Stavanger.
HCL’s Nordic journey began in 1999 with a regional headquarters in Stockholm. Today HCL has 6 local offices and 3 Delivery Centers with over 2500 consultants doing transformational work for over 30 Nordic customers. 5 of HCL’s top 10 engagements, providing business improvement technologies, come from Europe.
- Statoil engaged HCL to provide strategic infrastructure management services across 36 countries through an engagement that involves the end-to-end monitoring and management of Statoil’s entire IT infrastructure across global locations and offshore production sites. HCL’s Delivery Centre in Stavanger, Norway will service Statoil.
- DNB, Norway’s largest financial services institution has entrusted HCL with running its IT operations. HCL, a notable IT company in Norway, takes prime responsibility for running the IT infrastructure and applications operations for all DNB businesses across Norway and its key international locations.

HCL’s IoT solution will enable significant growth of the client’s service business.
Dynamic business environments, competition, and challenging economic conditions have resulted in a rapid escalation of operational costs which have a direct impact on a company’s P&L. The answer to this conundrum lies in the company’s enterprise functions such as Finance, Procurement, Marketing, Legal and HR, that form the central support to the organization.
HCL’s unique technology-driven proposition - “Enterprise Functions as a Service” or EFaaS™ - enables a reduction in the cost of business operations. While traditional IT and BPO focuses only on optimizing IT costs, EFaaS™ integrates business.
HCL’s ALT ASM™, which dwells on the concept of Proactive Obsolescence, is creating a paradigm shift in applications outsourcing.
While other IT vendors are motivated to keep growing their ASM engagements, we proactively try to eradicate this. By focusing on a cut down of wastes in an ASM engagement, we work towards achieving the ‘ZERO Incident’ status for many of our customers, allowing CIOs to strategically benefit from their ASM offshoring engagement.
HCL puts its employees first, empowering them to believe in everyday ideas that create immense value for customers, making HCL the world's largest Ideapreneurship™.
Our fixation on “value centricity” is dedicated to delivering more value for clients, putting their interests ahead of ours and delivering value that goes beyond the contract. Our belief in “trust, transparency and flexibility” drives us to step into our customers' business reality, guaranteeing outcomes with great enthusiasm. Our Ideapreneurs are transforming global businesses one relationship at a time.
Technology is constantly changing, often making even the best contracts appear outdated or ill-conceived. That’s why at HCL we focus on developing relationships beyond the contract — not just by optimizing costs or enhancing efficiency but by thinking well into the future on behalf of our customers. Our alternative propositions such as ALT ASM, Enterprise of the Future, Digital Systems Integration, Enterprise Functions as a Service, Innovation Monetization, and zCMO ensure that we deliver “relevant” business value in real-time, despite the changing times.
