Finnish Mobile Wallet Pivo Wins Red Dot for Interaction Design

HELSINKI, August 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Finnish service design and innovation agency Nordkapp and Finland's largest financial services group OP-Pohjola have won the sought-after Red Dot for interaction design in the Red Dot Award:  Communication Design 2014, for the interaction design of Mobile Wallet Pivo.

Pivo is a mobile wallet application that follows your consumption habits and shows the state of your personal finance in a clear and intuitive manner. The application was launched in May 2013. The development is being driven by OP-Pohjola's development team in Oulu, and complemented by design agency Nordkapp in Helsinki. According to its users, it is the best finance app in Finland. It looks beautiful, feels easy and effortless and most of all, has become an integral part of people's daily lives. The majority of the users open the application at least weekly while one third uses the app daily. These numbers are quite extraordinary and are being surpassed by only by the likes of Tinder and Facebook.

Despite the extremely tight development timeline, Pivo has exceeded all expectations we set for the app. In addition to this, the quality of the app is just outstanding, and hasbecome the pride of the whole organization. 

- Kristian Luoma, Business Development Manager, OP-Pohjola

Pivo is an exceptional example of results where modern, lean and multidisciplinary way of working can lead. By combining product management, development and design tightly together, we've created something that is quite special - a finance application that users love, and that feels easy and effortless. At Nordkapp, we would like to thank our clients at OP-Pohjola for an opportunity to work with such a great product team and partners. 

- Sami Niemelä, Creative Director, Pivo Design Lead, Nordkapp

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow. In his session at DevOps Summit, Marc Hornbeek, Sr. Solutions Architect of DevOps continuous test solutions at Spirent Communications, explained the best practices of continuous testing at high scale, which is rele...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of D...
Why do your mobile transformations need to happen today? Mobile is the strategy that enterprise transformation centers on to drive customer engagement.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
