TIM’s Noovle adds Oracle to multi-cloud services shopping list
TIM and its Noovle cloud offshoot are to offer multi-cloud services in Italy with Oracle, the companies have announced.
The three said they have announced a collaboration agreement as part of a plan to offer multi-cloud services for both enterprises and public sector organizations in Italy.
Noovle CEO Carlo d’Asaro Biondo (pictured) said: “This partnership also broadens the portfolio of solutions brought to the market by Noovle along with other major cloud players, facilitating openness, interoperability and flexibility.”
TIM – the former Telecom Italia – announced in May 2020 that it has acquired Italian Google Cloud partner Noovle, an Italian ICT consultancy and system integration company specialised in the supply of cloud projects and solutions in Italy.
TIM said then that the acquisition of a one of Google Cloud’s main partners in the Italian market would allow it to “gather significant speed through the future creation of its own newco dedicated to cloud and edge computing services”.
A year later Noovle said it was partnering with Cisco to develop cloud activities for business and the public sector.
The latest announcement adds Oracle to Google and Cisco on the roster of cloud companies that TIM’s Noovle works with.
TIM said that, under the latest agreement, it plans to use advanced cloud infrastructure technologies to support its goal of advancing Italy’s digital modernisation and establishing its position, through Noovle, as the market reference point for enterprise multi-cloud services in the country.
The three companies said they plan to bring their respective assets and expertise to develop and manage multi-cloud-architecture services for Italian enterprises.
Noovle said it brings an extensive data centre network in Italy, and TIM said it provides an extensive sales network across the country.
Oracle noted that it “brings its next-generation cloud infrastructure with its built-in security, superior performance and availability, which is ideally suited for mission-critical and cloud native workloads in large enterprise and public sector environments”.
D’Asaro Biondo said: “The collaboration with Oracle is a key element for accelerating our group’s transition to more flexible models and supporting the digitisation of businesses and public administration. By adopting a multi-cloud model, we can enrich our offer of high value-added services, enabling our customers to promptly seize the best business opportunities while simultaneously improving efficiency.”
Oracle’s Fabio Spoletini, senior VP for southern Europe, said: “We are pleased to be working with a major Italian operator in boosting digital innovation and the economic recovery of Italy. Oracle has a considerable footprint in highly-regulated and mission-critical enterprise and public sector environments, making us ideally suited to support customers with data-driven digital transformation objectives based on our secure and high-performing cloud.”
