Nokia has selected HCL Technologies to streamline Nokia’s outsourced IT management services.
HCL will transition services from four incumbent vendors to establish an integrated IT services delivery & design framework and will implement a transformation roadmap. The deal is intended to help Nokia drive operational efficiencies in line with previously announced targets.
HCL will build upon a strong existing engineering-centric partnership to encompass IT services. HCL will leverage its industry-leading next-gen technology services portfolio to provide Nokia with services around key transformational areas; such as cloud orchestration, digital platforms, big data analytics, cybersecurity, autonomics and modern collaborative workplaces.
“This is an important development for Nokia and takes our digital transformation efforts to a new level, both for how it will enhance our IT and operational efficiencies internally for Nokia, and for how it will enable us to further elevate service delivery to our customers. HCL’s track record of delivering transformational services at scale makes them the right partner for this all-important initiative,” said Nokia Chief Operating Officer, Joerg Erlemeier.
“This expansion of the HCL-Nokia relationship to include IT services is yet another testament to the alignment of our Mode 1-2-3 services with our customers’ strategic imperatives and our impressive track record to deliver transformational services at scale” said C Vijayakumar, President and Chief Executive Officer, HCL Technologies.
