To provide a wide array of services to companies in the Telia Group, Sweden based Telia is set to establish a Center of Excellence in Vilnius. The center will provide IT, tech and other internal services to Telia offices in Northern Europe, Central Europe and Central Asia. Located in the K29 business center in Lithuania’s capital, the office is set to be 4,500 square meters on the long term basis which will also accommodate the team from Telia Lietuva which currently employs almost 100 IT professionals in Lithuania.
According to Kęstutis Šliužas, the Manager of Telia Lietuva
“The successful operation of Telia Lietuva, and the competitive advantage it offers providing all telecoms and IT services as a single operator, is one of the main reasons the group has chosen Lithuania. The new Centre of Excellence will be a platform for greater integration with the entire Telia Group, facilitating the sharing of the latest technologies and knowledge.”
The availability of skilled professionals capable on working projects with a global scope is the reason Telia has chosen Lithuania.
