Mikael's focus is in transforming business with technology. His past experience include developing strategies and business plans for mobile services and managing the development of several applications including a machine learning based recommender system. Implemented solutions range from AI/ML proof-of-concepts to in-production applications that have been deployed in the scale from several thousands to millions of users.

Recently Mikael has been managing the first public cloud based machine learning pilot in a large European financial group. Previously Mikael has advised on cloud strategy and developed migration plans including application roadmaps. He modernized a legacy SAS database application with a self-service process running on a web platform to provide better user experience and visibility to frequently updated data.

Mikael uses design oriented methods, such as design sprints to effectively facilitate project workshops. Examples include leading the creation of a mobile advertising strategy and the development of an operating model for portfolio management in a heavily regulated industry.
