Rob Enslin, President at Google Cloud, said, "It's an honor to work with Nokia to help modernize its infrastructure on Google Cloud. We look forward to bringing our leading networking, data analytics, AI/ML, and other technologies to empower Nokia to deliver a cloud-first strategy and better serve its customers. We are excited to help Nokia revamp its IT infrastructure with our backbone network and our approach to data security, using advanced software-defined networking. We look forward to providing the full menu of our capabilities to help Nokia deliver on its cloud-first strategy and reach its performance requirements."

Ravi Parmasad, VP Global IT Infrastructure at Nokia, said, "Nokia is on a digital transformation path that is about fundamentally changing how we operate and do business. This is crucial for how our employees collaborate so that we continue to raise the bar on meeting the needs of our customers. We are very pleased that Google Cloud, with its engineering and operational excellence, is joining our transformation work to help us deliver on the many goals we have set.

Nokia and Google Cloud

Nokia revealed that the deal reflects the company’s operational shift toward a cloud-first IT strategy. The cloud move is also meant to help Nokia manage its digital operations journey and expand collaboration capabilities for its employees working remotely amid the pandemic.

Under this new deal, Nokia will use a suite of G Cloud products and services, with its infrastructure and applications running in the public cloud or with the Saas model.

The company has also worked out a customized migration schedule that will allow Nokia to exit its data centers more easily and quickly.
Google Cloud will deploy strategy system integrators, solutions specialists, and engineers to ensure a stable migration.
