Building blocks for the future: Managing change in a large-scale IT infrastructure
For Telia Company, the leading telecom service provider in the Nordic region, managing change has always been part of the business. But as the business undergoes further digital transformation, it becoming increasingly challenging to carry out large data centre upgrades. To leverage the most efficient new technology, and to enable cloud migration, Telia has established an IT architecture which combines standardisation with a vision for growth and innovation.
The FlexPod reference architecture allows for stepwise migration and adoption of new technologies
Telia values Proact’s flexible approach to solutions and services delivery, adapted to individual customer needs
Proact has excellent knowledge of Telia’s IT environment and real-world needs, which makes for better advice
