In line with Frends' earlier announcement, Boliden needed an integration platform capable of seamlessly handling both cloud and on-premises data. Boliden selected Frends iPaaS as the ideal solution. To facilitate the transition, the IT consultancy Enfo, today its subsidiary Epical, was chosen to ensure the smooth migration from the current solution while enhancing and optimizing the existing integration platform. On the 1st of June 2023, Enfo adopted a new corporate structure and separated its business into two independent businesses. Epical was established as a subsidiary of Enfo and is a Nordic pure-play data consultancy with services and expertise to support and enable the management, utilization, and protection of customers’ data.

Today, Frends iPaaS and Epical announce their strategic partnership, strengthening their presence in the Nordic region and expanding their offerings. Through this partnership, Epical combines its extensive expertise in integration development alongside the offering of Frends. As a result, both new and existing customers can utilize modern and secure technology for renewing and evolving their integration platforms, while seamlessly integrating with legacy systems.

Together Frends and Epical offer tailored solutions and assist customers in managing complex integration challenges. Through their partnership, the companies effectively integrate diverse systems, and create a seamless and secure connection between on-premises and cloud-based environments. This results in enhanced efficiency and drives digital transformation for customers. Collaboratively, Frends and Epical will assist organizations in optimizing their operations, fostering innovation and growth, while providing a high-quality, safe, and GDPR compliant solution.

"We are thrilled to embark on this strategic partnership with Epical. It propels us forward as we empower businesses with seamless integrations and drive successful digital transformations. By combining our expertise, we can provide comprehensive solutions that address the challenges and opportunities of today's rapidly evolving digital landscape. Together, we will optimize operations, foster innovation, and deliver high-quality, secure, and GDPR compliant solutions,” says Jukka Rautio, CEO of Frends.

"We are excited to join forces with Frends iPaaS in this strategic partnership, and it marks an important step ahead for Epical and our customers. Together, our synergies will bring substantial benefits to customers, enhancing their capacity to drive their businesses efficiently and successfully in a safe digital environment they can trust.
