Hi Linda Malmgren, what can you tell me about Sigma Connectivity?
Our story starts in 2013 when Sony Mobile decided to downsize their world leading development unit in Lund. By switching focus from in-house development to external client needs we unleashed our true potential. Within 12 months we were over 200 employees with a successful global client base. Today Sigma Connectivity has grown into a world-class design and development house with the ability to transform ideas into reality. With over 30 years of experience we are driven by a passion to bring innovative products to some of toughest markets on the planet. Our engineers and ID designers, together with our advanced in-house labs, can rapidly design, build and deploy smarter connected experiences that bring new levels of power to our clients.
What is a typical product or service of yours?
We help our clients to design, build and deploy smarter connected experiences by working with experience-driven creation of products and solutions within R&D and production development. No matter what phase of the product’s cycle our clients engage us in, we help them launch their product with the highest quality and on time. Wherever they are today, we can help. We simply help them take their ideas from concept, design, testing, industrialization and all the way to market.

You’ve got 270 smart brains at Sigma Connectivity, are there any areas or instances where you would like a closer cooperation or exchange of ideas with any of the other 9000 people here at Ideon?

They distill complex design objectives and simplify them down to core requirements,then systematically build robust solutions from the ground up. We would love to cooperate and exchange ideas with all organizations at Ideon.
