Creating a 'molte nuvole' service for private and public sectors
Under the Oracle agreement, the Telecom Italia (TIM) Group plans to use ‘advanced cloud infrastructure’ technologies to expedite Italy's digital modernisation, while making its cloud operator Noovle the de facto enterprise multi-cloud services in the country.
Noovle was launched in January 2021 and it has positioned itself as a public benefit company after its data centre techniques were officially declared in line with international best practices (LEED Gold). In May comms vendor Cisco was announced as a partner in the venture.
Big ask for Oracle
TIM has a nationwide sales network and its own blend of cloud and ICT services along with its fixed and mobile telco expertise in the internet of thing (IoT), 5G services and cybersecurity. Oracle was recruited for its cloud infrastructure’s built-in security, performance and availability.
Oracle's hybrid and multi-cloud strategy also aligns closely with TIM Group's objectives by allowing the customer data to be hosted in-country so that clients can meet their data sovereignty obligations, according to TIM Group.
TIM Group has also asked Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to migrate its own the mission-critical data management workloads to the public cloud, it announced. It has also selected Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) to improve its finance and supply chain processes and find new revenue streams.
TIM Group has public spirit
Oracle can help the TIM group become flexible enough to support the digitisation of businesses and public administration, said Noovle CEO Carlo d'Asaro Biondo.
“By adopting a multi-cloud model, we can enrich our offer of high value-added services. This partnership broadens the portfolio of solutions brought to the market by Noovle along with other major cloud players," said d'Asaro Biondo.
Oracle’s ‘considerable footprint’ in the highly-regulated enterprise and public sector will be the ideal complement to a telco embarking on a data-driven digital transformation because of its secure and high-performing cloud, according to Fabio Spoletini, Oracle’s SVP for South Europe.
In a related engagement, the TIM Group is campaigning to nurture digital skills throughout Italy through the Operazione Risorgimento Digitale project - which provides a free Internet school and raises the groups’ brand profile in the public sector.
