Tieto Corporation   PRESS RELEASE   26 January 2011 at 12.00 am EET

Tieto and ABB Finland have renewed their service agreement which covers the
maintenance services of critical business application servers and the SAP
enterprise resource planning system platform.

Lari Niemi, CIO of ABB Finland, says: "We have a long history as Tieto's
customer and we are used to relying on our partner's ability to come up with
flexible, customer-centric solutions. The ongoing service renewal offers us new
technology server environments which are reliable and scalable according to our
needs both technically and commercially."

Ari Järvelä, Executive Vice President, Tieto Finland and the Baltic countries,
says: "Tieto's service package ensures that the company's IT always corresponds
with business needs. Production plants and other service points of industrial
manufacturing - often geographically dispersed - process large amounts of
information. The latest technology together with Tieto's service model form an
entity offering local customer service combined with the advantages of a
centralized solution."

"IT is increasingly packaged and consumed as a service. Tieto's strategy drives
for higher differentiation and specialization and going forward, more focus is
placed on productizing our high value adding services and offerings," Ari
Järvelä sums up.
