The Danish Prime Minister at Systematic: "It’s good we have you"

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Aarhus Mayor Jacob Bundsgaard paid a visit to Systematic in Aarhus to take a closer look at our SitaWare command-and-control system, used by an increasing number of NATO countries.

During today's visit to Systematic, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Aarhus Mayor Jacob Bundsgaard gained insight into how the larger NATO countries use the company's SitaWare system to collaborate, command armies, and share information on the battlefield.

After the visit, the Prime Minister addressed the company's 750 employees in Denmark about the global security situation and the need for continued support for Ukraine and strengthening the Danish defence.

"We stand on the brink of a new era where we need to gear up, and we are in a hurry. We must strengthen our national defence and be actively present on NATO's eastern flank. Denmark has a special obligation regarding the Arctic, the Baltic Sea, and the Balkans. There is a lot happening in artificial intelligence, quantum physics, and space. At the same time, misinformation, fake news, and influence campaigns are rising. All this considered – it is good we have you," she said to the employees in the packed canteen.

"You have shown that you can quickly scale up and that you are able to support and collaborate with the major NATO countries. It is important to have Danish companies that can adapt their products quickly and effectively to fit the world we operate in. It makes me hopeful and proud, so thank you very much for your great efforts in the defence area," said Mette Frederiksen.

Healthcare is always important

However, the Prime Minister had not overlooked that Systematic also delivers critical IT solutions to the healthcare sector, and to the employees in that part of the company, she said:

"I also know that several of you here are deeply involved in the healthcare sector - and that is always important. The Mayor and I discussed exactly that, especially when it comes to artificial intelligence and the work you do in this area; there is enormous potential to ensure that the patient is at the centre and to free up resources in our healthcare system for the most urgent tasks. So, thank you all. There will not be fewer tasks in the future when it comes to these two areas. Thank you for your excellent work."

After the meeting, Mette Frederiksen greeted several employees and inquired about their areas of work.
