Accelerating Cloud Transformation for Telecom Providers – Ericsson and AWS

Are you a telecom provider looking to transform your business on the cloud? If yes, then we have an exciting announcement to share with you. Today, APN Consulting Partner Ericsson announced plans to form a global business, technology, and services alliance with AWS to accelerate cloud transformation for telecom service providers. Ericsson is creating a global team of experts focused on AWS, and is opening cloud innovation centers with customers, with AWS support.

Why Ericsson and AWS?

As the Ericsson team explained today in their press release, “New technologies such as mobile broadband and the cloud have transformed the competitive battleground for service providers. Today’s leading telecoms companies seek to capitalize on new opportunities such as Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics and at the same time, leverage the latest technologies to improve productivity and efficiency, increase agility, reduce complexity and risk, as well as create unique value for their customers.

Ericsson will leverage AWS’ services and expertise to work closely with service providers to implement a cloud adoption framework to fit their unique business objectives. The Ericsson teams will consist of program directors, solutions architects and system engineers who are trained on AWS and Ericsson technologies and bring together deep service provider industry and cloud domain expertise. AWS is supporting Ericsson in this effort with a broad range of resources that may include solutions architects, professional services and training. The companies’ efforts are designed to accelerate cloud adoption through cloud transformation programs, data center consolidation and application migration.”
