SINTEF is a knowledge enterprise making a living from their intellectual capital. They needed to move from their legacy systems to keep up with the ever-growing volumes and changing forms of information generated in their day-to-day work.
SINTEF wanted to move away from the data isolation that dedicated systems keep, and provide a universal access to information.
