Odda kommune is taking advantage of the Enterprise Agreement campaign offered by G Suite.

The campaign gives them the opportunity to exchange their existing solution for G Suite without license costs during the remaining period of their Microsoft EA.

We look forward to implementing a modern and solid tool for our organisation, and thanks to the campaign we can start today, says Andreas Sigvaldsen, Head of IT at Odda kommune. With G Suite in place we will be able to focus on preparing our municipality for the future, instead of spending time on system and hardware support.

Odda kommune is also managing the IT systems for several other municipalities in Hardanger. Four of them are already using Google Apps for Education.


Sigvaldsen will now lead a project looking at an overall solution for the use of G Suite in Odda municipality, and hope that the project will convince the other municipalities in the region.


To digitalize the work processes requires new solutions that are both secure, and can meet the expectations of tomorrow about accessibility and flexibility. G Suite has that capability, says Sigvaldsen.

This is a wake up call to the Norwegian public sector. We see more and more municipalities like Odda going Google, says Robert Udnesseter, Sales Manager, Avalon Solutions. With the EA campaign your organization can start using tomorrow’s technology today, even though you are stuck in an enterprise agreement. This is a huge benefit of the cloud ecosystem!
