Alliance focuses on cybersecurity, enterprise 5G-led transformation and digital transformation for communication-service providers.

Ernst & Young Oy and Nokia have formed a strategic alliance that is being rolled-out to other EY member firms across the globe to help enterprises and communication service providers (CSPs) accelerate their digital and business transformation journey and unleash the business potential of private wireless and 5G network capabilities. The alliance will also support enterprises in maintaining resiliency beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

The EY organization will collaborate to address the management and security challenges relating to these emerging technologies, and the expansive data they generate.

"The impact of 5G across industries is a growing priority for EY clients undergoing digital and business transformation, as new use cases become a critical focus looking beyond this period of crisis," said Greg Cudahy, EY global technology, media & entertainment and telecoms leader. "Nokia’s leading capabilities in private wireless and 5G deployment complement the EY strategic alliance ecosystem in this evolving landscape. The alliance with Nokia helps deliver end-to-end solutions to address clients’ most pressing challenges as they respond to dramatic shifts in market dynamics and strive to accelerate growth and productivity gains.”

Added Raghav Sahgal, Nokia president of cloud and network services, “Together with EY people, we will bring leading, high-performance, and secure network solutions for operators and industrial players around the world, and the experience required to develop innovative business models and 5G use-cases for enterprises. This means an acceleration of the digital transformation journey for customers as they seek to reinvent themselves in a post-pandemic world.”
