Industrial Cloud Sandbox Pilot

Reference number
Coordinator Ericsson AB - Ericsson AB, Torshamnsgatan
Funding from Vinnova SEK 387 600
Project duration January 2019 - April 2019
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The ICS pilot aims to plan and enable ICS as a future component for the digitization of Swedish industry. The goal is to establish a national cloud platform with a focus on digitalisation and innovation, where Swedish digitization projects are given access to advanced computing resources and storage capacity. The result of the pilot is a project plan, detailed description of services and training packages. The design of the ICS activities is based on discussions with needs owners and related initiatives.

Expected results and effects

We have developed a functioning model for financing, identified expectations for a cloud platform, and mapped out obstacles to digitization among potential needs owners. The end result is an attractive platform with the potential to strengthen Swedish companies in the digitization process.

Planned approach and implementation

Pilot was conducted through interviews with potential users to understand how ICS should be best designed. In addition, discussions were conducted with related initiatives, such as the Digital Main Line, AI Innovation of Sweden, iHubSweden to find ways to reach out to stakeholders and maximize synergies. Finally, it has done an external analysis of digitization and clouds.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
