Infopulse Turned 30: Celebrating Anniversary in the Open-Air Film Festival
In over 30 years, Infopulse passed through a series of transformations to match the needs of our constantly growing customer base. By adopting and integrating the business culture, values, and high standards of our parent company TietoEVRY into our services portfolio, Infopulse has become a result-driven and technology-agnostic IT services provider. Each year Infopulse’s accomplishment box is filled with recognitions, nominations, awards, and global acknowledgment of successfully delivered projects.
30 years in a few flashbacks
A myriad of events, trips, partnerships, and experts, who joined the company, are those who write the history of Infopulse. However, if you asked Aleksey Sigov and Andrey Anissimov, the founders of Infopulse, they would say that everything started from a university friendship, lasting for more than 45 years already. Together, two friends decided to start a business in times when that was more than a challenge in the country of the former USSR.
The company took a huge leap towards foreign partnerships in 1992, a year after it was born, by signing a promising contract with a French enterprise. This partnership gave a great impetus for ramping up teams and jumpstarting a new business. Later, a partnership agreement with a Netherland-based company brought a whole lot of new opportunities on the western market of IT services.
The long-term partnership with TietoEVRY started in 2007, when Infopulse became a part of EDB (later EVRY) and thus, entered the Scandinavian IT market. As Infopulse amplified its capacity and began opening offices in different countries, in 2016 EVRY and Infopulse decided to expand cooperation in other areas. In 2019, Infopulse received even more business opportunities from the merger of EVRY with Tieto Corporation (now TietoEVRY).
Since the early 2000s, Infopulse has also established long-standing partnerships with Microsoft, SAP, AWS, IBM, Cisco, strengthening its expertise in the implementation of the related solutions and technologies. We keep on receiving high recognition of our growing capabilities from these tech giants. Only in the last few years, Infopulse became a 2019 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year and gained exclusive Azure Expert MSP and SAP Gold Partner statuses.
Today Infopulse is…
- A global IT services provider with offices in 7 countries already and clients in 40 countries worldwide. We keep trailblazing new markets and domains to help our clients innovate and transform their businesses.

An open-air film festival “Infopulse-30”
30 years of history can hardly fit in a single evening, yet a single evening is enough to commemorate the 30-year story of the company.
In August, Infopulse held a special corporate event to celebrate its birthday with the entire Infopulse family. Specialists from across Ukraine and our international offices joined the party. With over a thousand participants, it still had an atmosphere of a heartfelt, long-awaited family reunion, perfectly reflecting our shared values.
The evening felt especially prominent, being the first occasion for many of the infopulsers to meet their peers in person after switching to remote work in 2020 due to COVID-19. Moreover, it turned into an opportunity to welcome newcomers who joined the company during the quarantine.
The event granted us a trip to the past through a series of short films that demonstrated 30 years of fascinating journey and adventures of Infopulse in the Ukrainian and international IT market. The founders of the company, Alexey Sigov, Infopulse President, and Andrey Anissimov, Infopulse CEO, shared the backstory of the company and their experience of building one of the biggest IT companies in Ukraine, as well as the challenges and milestones they met on the way. They also highlighted the role of the individuals and teams for the common success and presented a number of Infopulse specialists with awards to mark their contribution.
While cherishing the past accomplishments, Infopulse President and CEO made a special focus on the future of the company with its ambitious plans, global strategy, and further growth.
