Telefónica Business Solutions has signed a four-year contract with NEC that sees the Japanese vendor becomes its global integrator of enterprise cloud services. 

NEC has acted as the operator’s “software as-a-service services broker" since 2009, providing cloud services to enterprise customers.

Under the new agreement, NEC will deliver Telefónica’s (SaaS) platforms to SME customers in Europe and Latin America that are looking to create new cloud solutions.

The contract also sees the vendor deploy its NEC Cloud Brokerage Suite (NCBS) for Telefónica’s Latin America operations, in order to help the telco speed up the delivery of new cloud services and packaged commercial offers.

Juan Manuel Moreno, Cloud Global Director of Telefónica Business Solutions, said: “SMBs need to use new ICT technologies to compete and interact with customers in an increasingly digital world, but more often than not they find the technology expensive and difficult to manage.

“To help them in this transformation, Telefónica gives SMBs a way to take full advantage of technology, without the need for additional investment or capacity concerns.

“The agreement with NEC will enable us to accelerate the deployment of these solutions on a global level, and provide customers the best possible support when using them."

The operator said the new contract reinforced NEC’s position as one of its most important suppliers.

Jaime Serrano, Vice President of NEC Europe Southern Cluster, commented: "The experience we've gained over the past few years thanks to [business application platform] Telefónica Aplicateca and more than 20 operators worldwide has helped us to design a very solid Cloud solution that is able to offer a very advanced service experience.”
