Who are we? | About SA Enterprise Systems

We are Solution Area Enterprise Systems (SA ES) within Ericsson Group IT. Within SA ES, we run IT like a business which means focusing on the value we deliver, on top of costs we generate. We make the step from consuming technology to actively identify, analyze and deliver new technology – but only that which creates value for our customers.


On top and beyond a very strong leadership and culture framework that Ericsson possesses, there are 6 themes which further define and differentiate us as a team: growth mindset (we believe in human potential beyond current performance), wild cards (we respect and nurture unconventional ideas), change tribes (we move from “I’m great” to “we’re great” and are excited to work with others for the benefit of the entire company), bridging the digital divide (we believe in that the digital divide must not be feared but actively managed) disagree & commit (disagree while a decision is being made, but once a decision has been made, everybody must commit to it) and collective leadership (a group of people working together towards a shared goal). We also live by the motto CUSTOMER FIRST, ERICSSON ALWAYS.
