Founding story

In 1994 Novo Nordisk merged the IT departments in two of its divisions, Healthcare and Enzyme and Novo Nordisk Data Service. It named the new entity Novo Nordisk IT and spun it out as a separate company. In 1997 Novo Nordisk IT became one of the first Danish information techology firms to achieve ISO 9001 certification. In 1998 it was incorporated as a limited liability company.

In 2000 Novo Nordisk IT received PCMM certification, the first European firm to do so. Between 2001 and 2003, it formed alliances with SAP, Oracle, Siebel, and Microsoft. In 2004, it shortened its name to NNIT to distinguish its identity from Novo Nordisk. The same year it was converted to a wholly-owned “aktieselskab“ and in March 2015, it was listed on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic.
