Their aim is to create new technological solutions for businesses and public administration.
Cisco, TIM and Noovle, TIM’s cloud company, have signed a partnership to develop cloud activities for the public and private sectors.
Under the agreement, the partners will strive to create “cutting-edge” cloud infrastructure and support the migration of businesses toward hybrid working models.
The parties will leverage their respective infrastructure and expertise, using the Cisco Co-Innovation Center in Milan which is dedicated to cybersecurity and data privacy and TIM Group’s sales network across Italy.
Noovle will provide multi-cloud services and solutions, data centres and about 1,000 dedicated professionals.
The signatories will jointly design cloud security solutions, ensuring alignment with European regulations.
They will also benefit from the TIM Group’s experience with cloud: it is a member of the GAIA-X project which is to set up European infrastructure for data sharing and access, in pursuit of digital sovereignty.
Cheaper and more secure
“The partnership with Cisco will allow us to assist businesses in the digital transformation challenge using advanced multi-cloud services that ensure efficiency, cost benefits and security”, said Carlo d’Asaro Biondo, CEO of Noovle.
He added, “We are providing the public and private sectors with automated platforms and cloud solutions that allow customers’ needs to be managed, from connectivity to services.
"The activities and projects that we will implement alongside Cisco are in line with the Group’s wider objective to contribute to Italy’s digitisation”.
Paolo Campoli, Cisco Vice President, Global Service Provider, said, “Together…we must develop a secure and highly automated infrastructure to integrate network and cloud, which guarantees security for the applications and services it supports, for any user, anywhere, with any device.
"It is a fundamental step for helping businesses and Italy make full use of the digital leverage”.
