Italy can express high and advanced competence also in technology. In a hitech era dominated by Analytics, Unified Communication and Collaboration solutions, virtualization through Telco over Cloud and Big Data, two top Italian companies, Italtel and Exprivia, have joined forces for a compelling offer to the Italian and foreign markets.
The Italtel and Exprivia partnership
Italtel, the Italian telecommunications company specialized in next-generation services and all-IP communication, and Exprivia, the Italian provider of process consultancy, technology services and IT solutions, signed a partnership agreement that strengthens their presence in the domestic Service Provider market, with particular focus on Operational Support Systems (OSS) and Business Support Systems (BSS), domestic large enterprises (Finance, Healthcare, Government and Energy and Utility sectors) as well as Service providers in a number of international markets.
For the Service Provider segment, Italtel and Exprivia will propose a joint offer which will integrate their expertise, products and services in OSS and BSS with typical IT components, resulting in solutions that better fit their customers’ core businesses. The cooperation extends to international Service Provider markets in regions already covered by the two partners, such as Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru and Turkey.
For Italy’s Large Enterprises market, Italtel and Exprivia will offer joint solutions based on Exprivia’s IT solutions (web portals and applications such as Application Outsourcing, Back Office Applications and Analytics) which strongly complement technology developed by Italtel for next-generation Data Centers, Enterprise Data Networks and Unified Communication and Collaboration services.
In addition to the business partnership, the agreement between Italtel and Exprivia includes an industry partnership to design and engineer innovative solutions for specific projects relating to topics such as virtualization through Telco over Cloud and IMS Mobile Wi-Fi offload, as well as new fields like the use of Business Intelligence technologies and Big Data in the Service Provider context.
“The world needs joint developments to optimize customer solutions and make them more flexible and adaptable”, says Stefano Pileri, CEO of Italtel. “We are a valid example of two Italian companies with a strong competence in Information & Communication Technology that can work together to convey competitiveness and growth to their customers”.
“I am convinced that together we can expand our operation area, leveraging each other’s strengths, skills and demand”, says Domenico Favuzzi, President and CEO of Exprivia.
