Enabling efficient IT operations and revenue growth

IT Managed Services

With the introduction of 5G and cloud, the role of IT Managed Services has evolved to become an enabler of new revenue opportunities, in addition to delivering efficient cloud and IT operations for service providers on their 5G journey.

Key challenges

There are three key challenges impacting communication service providers’ (CSPs) cloud and IT landscape.

Stringent service levels

CSPs need to deliver stringent industrial grade SLAs such as 99.999 % up-time to reliably support business-critical services.

How we tackle these challenges: Ericsson Operations Engine

Today, service providers need a new operating model to tackle these complexities. Over a period of three years, we have invested heavily in defining a new operating model, digitalizing our processes and developing AI capabilities. We have developed more than 40 AI use cases and built an automation platform for the automated operations of 65 million subscribers.

This has resulted in the launch of the Ericsson Operations Engine.

With the introduction of the Ericsson Operations Engine, we have accelerated our journey from reactive and incident-driven, to proactive, data-driven cloud and IT operations.
