Tieto Stays, But JV Off

HELSINKI — Finnish IT company Tieto has agreed with Moscow-based I-Teco to pull out of plans announced in September 2010 to establish a joint venture.

The companies concluded that, in the current market environment, the benefits from a joint venture would be smaller than initially estimated. The companies will, however, continue their cooperation in the data center field in Russia. It was announced previously that Tieto has a data center on I-Teco’s premises.

Tieto’s sales in Russia have grown during the past year in several industry and service segments, including projects related to the data center services. Tieto provides IT services that include cloud and SaaS (Software as a Service) services.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
