The Cloud People, formerly known as Symfoni Next, has years of experience developing software, implementing and delivering services in Europe. TJ Group and Symfoni Software was acquired in 2004, and we built a strong IBM Software partner in the Nordics over the following five years. The company expanded from 10 to 120 employees and had a revenue growth from €1,5 to €15 million by 2016.

We established the largest ServiceNow partner in EMEIA from 2011 to 2016, having acquired the HP Service partner Rubik Solutions in 2011. The company was restructured and the customers converted to ServiceNow. This part was sold to Fujitsu in mid 2016.

Symfoni Next sold out the Nordic collaboration business outside Norway in 2016, and started focusing on Google Cloud Platform and Google Workspace.

On our way to further develop the company, Symfoni Next changed its name to The Cloud People in December 2019. We expanded our proposition and developed a new business model based on transparency, predictability and simplicity as reflected in the new company name.

The Cloud People delivers Smart Resourcing on ServiceNow and Google Cloud Platform. In addition, we deliver everything from basic cloud hosting to custom development projects on desktop and mobile devices.

The Cloud People + WomenFuture

WomenFuture runs an annual nomination of Woman of the Year in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

The Cloud People is a proud partner, supporter and contributor, and we have been involved in the making and branding of WomenFuture. The company has contributed and run different activities where all collected funds were donated to project “Lilian” and the building of a henhouse farm on Zanzibar for local egg production. The henhouse is the first of many that is planned to be built, and will help more women to a better life by providing them with a way to earn a living.

The Cloud People will continue to contribute to the project and WomenFuture in the future.
