Saab chooses Semcon for outsourcing its IT platform for product development Against competition from several of the world's leading IT companies, Semcon has been chosen as a partner for outsourcing the operation and system support for Saab's product development platform. The partnership is initially over a five-year period. Semcon will be responsible for System Management, parts of the application operations, advice to users and housing. To meet its commitments, Semcon will open an office next to Saab. -Development is the key to Saab Automobile's success. Having seamless support for our product development systems is vitally important. Because Semcon understands our development activities, it is natural for us to select Semcon as a partner.
