Accenture and Nokia have established the Nokia Accenture Business Group, a new strategic alliance that aims to help communication service providers (CSPs) and other enterprises rapidly transition to modern digital networks. 

The expanded group is the result of the recent acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent by Nokia and built upon the success of the Accenture Alcatel-Lucent Business Group, announced in September 2014.

The Accenture Alcatel-Lucent Business Group has helped a variety of CSPs - including Telefonica, TIM, and WIND Telecom - and other large enterprises enhance customer experience and optimize their networks across the globe, said Accenture.

The partnership will also see both companies jointly develop, sell and deliver new industry solutions including customer experience and analytics, network and business transformation, next-generation enterprise services for CSPs, software-defined data center solutions for large enterprises and next-generation IP and digital solutions for the mining, oil and gas industries.

Kathrin Buvac, Chief Strategy Officer, Nokia
Today’s pace of technological change, driven by the transition to 5G, the Internet of Things and the cloud, is demanding extraordinary new capabilities from the network.

Bob Sell, group chief executive of Accenture’s Communications, Media & Technology operating group
While software-defined networks provide great operational efficiency, even more importantly, they offer tremendous potential for developing new services and revenue streams.
