Allow us to introduce Christian Thorwest. As of Feb 1, Christian is using his iOS expertise to develop the most magnificent things for screens of all sizes here at Invokers. We are very excited to welcome another talented member to our team!
The presence of a conspicuously cute dog at SAP TechEd should not blur the importance of the following announcement: As of today, Mikael Gurenius is taking the lead as Invokers' new CTO, scouting out the latest technologies and ensuring that the highest level of know-how is embedded in the digital solutions we deliver.
Throughout his 7 years with Invokers, Mikael has proved to be a strong analytical thinker with a wonderfully creative twist, and we are very much looking forward to follow his lead on technological development.
On a related note, our former CTO Rune Durhuus-Andersen has stepped down to devote his time and love to an Invokers/Trifork spin-off: Arkyn Studios. Alongside Thomas Juel Andersen and Morten Toxværd , Rune will create simple, lovable productivity Off-the-Shelf apps to augment the ERP systems of the 2020’s.
In November 2019, we decided to shut down operations for 3 full days to explore techniques to strengthen our mental resilience. One of the more tangible results of this seminar is our daily tabata routine. Coupled with individual meditations and team exercises, we are starting to feel the effect. Thank you, Center for Mental Robusthed and Velliv Foreningen for helping us making this happen.
The 00's brought us Web 2.0. The 10's added The Cloud to our vocabulary. Invokers are kicking off the 20's by introducing Smart Enterprise, a transformative take on how to increase business value through user-centric digital solutions and thus setting the scene for digital transformation perfected.
Wicked problems may seem unsurmountable at first. A team of Invokers is currently in Switzerland, working with a customer to explore new and innovative ways of defining and approaching challenges ahead - a first step in building smarter digital solutions. Oh and never missing an opportunity to turn work into art, our Michael Thøgersen is the gifted photographer documenting the solution to another wicked problem: Mountain infrastructure.
We are proud to announce that the Trifork Group has acquired a majority stake in SAPBASIS, a well renowned Danish SAP consulting and operations company.

We caught another Gazelle! For the second consecutive year, Invokers is awarded a Børsen Gazelle, celebrating the fact that we are in the midst of a remarkable growth spurt. And we are pretty close to bursting with pride.
Since 2006, we have been striving to create business value for our customers through simple, high-performing mobile and web solutions with a special focus on the end-user.
And our recipe for success seems to be working, based on our latest addition of the antelope species: First you take a group of customers who acknowledge the value of digital innovation and transformation anchored in the needs and ideas of the end-user. Then you add a dedicated and madly skilled group of Invokers that insists on creating cutting-edge yet simple digital solutions to optimize processes and workflows. The result is smarter, cost-reducing solutions that are easy to implement and use. Voila!

We have been expanding like there is no tomorrow during the past year – new faces, new location, new customers and as a new part of the Trifork family. So many changes in such a short time can prove to be challenging - which gives us even more reason to celebrate an outstanding score of 95%.

The pace is high at Invokers. Our days are unpredictable, and deadlines are never far away. This creates a fun and dynamic vibe – but also a need for tools to dismantle stressful situations. Thank you Velliv Foreningen for selecting us from among many other applicants - we are thrilled that you will support our efforts to establish a structured way of dealing with stress for all employees at Invokers. An important step in our quest for the best possible work/life balance, facilitated by Center for Mental Robusthed.

Great event, amazing people and powerful innovation.
SAP’s approach to digital businessdevelopment is continuously changing, improving and starting to focus more on custom development. With their new development paradigms, specially designed tools, etc., SAP encourages customers to develop their own unique, innovative solutions and the technology is now so mature that it provides the best prerequisites for creating differentiating solutions - All in all, SAP’s approaches are starting to match invokers' mindset and approach to innovation more and more and we look forward to trying out the new tools.
Another milestone in the history of the invokers-family has been reached

Mikael Gurenius on stage, at a recent event at our revered customer E.ON Sverige.
Thank you, Mikael!
Last friday - September 1st - was a very special day in the long continuity, that is our life at invokers. First, we are welcoming 4 new colleagues and second, we had a hell of a time throwing a housewarming for our awesome new Aarhus office!
After 11 years in Copenhagen, we have opened office in Aarhus.
So of course we would like to celebrate our entry into the Jutland capital, with a glass of bubbles, together with our customers, partners and friends.
That SAP and Apple have started strategic cooperation is hardly news to anyone who work with SAP daily. But what does it mean when the world's most advanced ERP system becomes available on the world's most intuitive platform?
We would like to highlight this in an exclusive "roundtable" at invokers' Design Thinking Studio in Copenhagen. Together with Apple, we will show the perspective of offering the company's users user interfaces of the same quality as we expect as private consumers. Combining native apps for iPhone and iPad with the capabilities of the SAP Cloud Platform, we share insights on how to streamline the SAP workforce. Both internally and externally.
This iconic address is in many ways at the epicenter of the great waves of digitalization that has swept across every part of civilized life for the past decade. While being firmly rooted in consumer space, Apple has recently made great strides into bringing equally high end-user experience capabilities to enterprises. Among these endeavours, is the great SAP/Apple partnership, which is the story behind this picture: The awesome invokers design team primed and ready for co-innovation and collaboration, on-site at the Apple Enterprise Design Lab in Cupertino (!)
So theres that....
Quote Martin Schirmer: "SAP Cloud Platform has become the designated extension and integration platform for SAP’s entire portfolio"
Luckily, SAP Nordic has partners in place, who have recognized and embraced this fact for some time ;-)

Also a great many thanks to everyone who came to our stand and had the patience to listen to us babble on about, what we ourselves think of, as a superbly great SAP technology scenario.
In case you missed it, we will be very happy to give private tours of the setup.
It is a complete, end-to-end scenario, including data from on-premise SAP ERP, many aspects of the awesome SAP Cloud Platform, Internet-of-Things, HANA, the new Apple SDK, predictive analytics, Augmented Reality and two ultra-cool LEGO wind-turbines as the center pieces.
In two days, the new Apple SDK for SAP Cloud Platform is released for General Availability.
Having been active participants in early adopter programs, our sublimely brilliant colleagues already have extensive experience with the ins and outs of the development kit.
Therefore, we can already from day 1 offer our clients advice and assistance in bringing consumer-grade apps to business users, using this great new piece of technology.
Interested participants at SAP Innovation Forum 2017 in Copenhagen, will also be able to get a live demo of how this fits into an amazing end-to-end scenario! Be sure to stop by our stand and have a peek :-)
At invokers we clearly notice an increasing interest for IoT among our customers. Some customers are far ahead, while others have just begun. But they all share the great interest in the new possibilities with the combination of IoT, Big data, A.I. and A.R.
NOTE: The post is in Danish.
At invokers we appreciate the fact that real value-creating solutions are products of the preciously delicate balancing of Feasibility, Viability and Desirability.
With that in mind (and also considering that we always like to learn something new :-)) we recently had a little stint into the artistic side of things, in the form of a drawing/sketching workshop, courtesy of https://www.sketch-it.dk/ .
Next up: Perhaps a programming course for our amazing visual designers :-) ?
Being at the vanguard of UX, and bringing consumer-grade experiences to enterprise users requires a lot more than slideware and buzzword . It requires skill, experience and passion. Luckily, all our invokers colleagues possesses these qualities in excess ;-) Exemplified here by Lars Raunkjær Arnbak and Chris Buch on stage, giving talk on Angular2 and Electron from real world experiences, implementing a super successful customer project. Guys, we are so proud of you!
And so our very own Thomas Ove Rasmussen was thrust upon the stage, among peer masters of technology and innovation :-)
Congratulations Asier Vega and Thomas Ove Rasmussen on a successful presentation, congratulations Vestas on the great digital vision and prowess, and congratulations SAP and Apple on delivering this great technology for us all to innovate with.
Are you going to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona?
And would you like to know more about what benefits the new collaboration between SAP and Apple gives you when creating new innovative digital solutions?
Then visit SAP & Apple's stand Wednesday at 1pm and hear how Vestas has planned to utilize the new iOS SDK to build future tools for their skilled people in the field.
"Imagine if we designed our offices for the employees the same way as we buy and design IT systems. This way, all the restrooms would be located at the ground floor at one end of the building, because it gives the shortest piping - and then never mind about all the trouble for the employees
Not to mention all the otherwise productive working hours that would be wasted from running around the building..."
Super interesting views from our very own Thomas Ove Rasmussen! Read the blog post here
NOTE: the blog post is in Danish
It's not a secret that invokers are leading within the field of UX, Design Thinking and Mobile Solutions for SAP ... But we're also already working on the new HCP SDK for iOS to develop exciting solutions with close integration to HCPms and SAP.

SAP invites to HR New Year's Seminar! And we have been invited to tell a little about why the user experience for internal applications - including HR solutions - is equally important for the company's results, as the customer experience is on external systems and solutions.
