Managed Cloud Operations
Managed Cloud Operations from initial introduction to full implementation
Operators are increasingly looking to move their operations to the cloud to take advantage of the flexibility, scalability and cost benefits of virtualization. To do this succesfully, they need a partner with the skills to help them on the journey from initial introduction to full enablement.
With its Managed Cloud Operations, Nokia offers cloud transformation services as well as cloud-based operations that can be continuously improved.
The solution consists of a DevOps framework, an OSS strategy and a strong governance framework for the transformation of operations. Nokia also works with strategic partners to support a cloud open ecosystem.
Setting up cloud operations typically involves multiple interactions between different partners in a multivendor network. Nokia simplifies this process by becoming your "Single Point of Contact" with other vendors for managing your end-to-end network operations. Close co-operation between staff deploying the network and those responsible for operating it is also encouraged.
The Managed Cloud Operations integrated delivery framework is supported by Nokia’s highly skilled global delivery centers, but can also be supported locally to meet specific operator requirements.
