– The journey that we have made during these five years is fantastic, says Linda Henriksson, Business Unit Manager R&D at Sigma IT Consulting and responsible for Sigma’s team deliveries to Ericsson.

Sigma IT Consulting and Ericsson have a long tradition of team collaborations. In 2013, a partnership based on team deliveries was formed as part of Ericsson’s development project. This collaboration is now celebrating five successful years – and has focus on putting Ericsson on the map within 5G.

When the collaboration with team deliveries started in 2013, there were 12 consultants in two teams from Sigma. Today the partnership has grown to 9 teams and 70 consultants from Sigma. A large number of system developers work in agile cross functional teams to develop software for Ericsson’s radio base stations – fully integrated with other teams at Ericsson.

– The journey that we have made during these five years is fantastic. We have built a collaboration where Sigma can contribute with both the breadth and cutting-edge competence that Ericsson needs, says Linda Henriksson, Business Unit Manager R&D, Sigma IT Consulting.

Complete teams that strengthen Ericsson’s capacity

The collaboration demands deep knowledge within R&D. The teams perform requirement management, design, development, test and documentation for a complex software in a complex environment. Sigma’s high-performance teams work within expert areas such as development of new features for the product, development of delivery environment for continuous integration, and quality improvements of the software. Sigma’s delivery includes all functions, from software developers to scrum masters and product owners.

– This tight collaboration is very valuable for us, says Stefan Lekebo, at Ericsson. The team deliveries from Sigma are fully integrated with our own teams, which gives us a tremendous capacity. We get access to the competence we need to reach success within 5G and other areas.
