Min Sky

Journey began

Joined Telenor in 2014 (consultant 2012-13)

Min Sky makes it possible to show all your photos in a timeline on any device.

This innovation emerged in 2012. While evaluating the service Telenor Sikker Lagring (TSL) I had an idea. As a photo enthusiast with more than 10,000 photos stored in different folders on multiple computers, I had a major challenge finding and sharing specific photos. Changing TSL into a service that could let you show all your photos in a timeline on any device became the main objective.

Memories are very important for our customers. Time after time when families meet, disaster happens or you want to recall something, photos are key. The memories that matter most to us need to be available and safely stored.

This was an excellent opportunity to make a service that solved a real problem. A limited number of photo services were available then, and none had a good view of the personal photo collection.

Min Sky now has more than 500 000 active users with more than 50 per cent active on a weekly basis. It is one of the most used apps in Telenor Norway and has been tested in most Telenor markets.

I use Min Sky every day. I really appreciate having a place where I can easily store and retrieve my photos, anywhere and anytime.
