“Nilfisk is committed to serving customer needs through innovation and a best-in-class customer experience,” stated Steen Andersen, head of CIO Office & Core IT at Nilfisk. “As we migrate more of our mission-critical applications to the cloud and implement IoT, we require an agile communications platform for both cloud and legacy infrastructure needs.”
