“ Thanks to IBM Connections Cloud, we have achieved considerable cost savings—helping us to invest more in our music. ”
Truls Gulbrandsen, Director Personnel and Administration, Oslo Philharmonic
Media & Entertainment
The Oslo Philharmonic (Oslo-Filharmonien) is a symphony orchestra based in Oslo, Norway. Formed in 1919, the organization employs 108 musicians and 20 administrative personnel and plays around 65 concerts in Oslo each year. The company is organized as a non-profit, self-owned trust and is primarily financed by the Norwegian government.
As the global economic slowdown exerts downward pressure on government funding, Oslo Philharmonic wanted to optimize the cost of delivering vital collaboration tools to musicians and staff—but how?
Oslo Philharmonic worked with IBM® Premier Business Partner Item Consulting to migrate to a collaboration platform based on IBM Connections™ Cloud—shrinking on-premises infrastructure costs.
Oslo Philharmonic achieves considerable savings, enabling it to increase its investment in revenue-driving activities and encourage greater collaboration within the orchestra and the back office.
