Nokia

With more than 60,000 people in over 150 countries, Nokia Siemens Networks is one of the largest telecommunications hardware, software and services companies in the world. It offers a complete portfolio of mobile, fixed and converged network technologies as well as professional services including consulting and systems integration, network implementation, maintenance and care, and managed services.

The Challenge

NSN has dozens of websites in different countries that use multiple language sets and serve various audiences. For years each site was managed by a local team using different platforms. This became extremely cumbersome when it came to updating branded copy and changing information across

its global and national sites. With operations in multiple countries and dozens of websites to be managed, Nokia needed an effective way of maintaining all site properties by migrating all of Nokia’s web sites to a centralized location.

The Analysis

To fix this, Icreon would need to conduct a large-scale database to bring all of Nokia’s site properties to a single instance of Drupal that could power every country’s website as well as the global website at large. Nokia would need a platform that can support inputting data from multiple languages such as English, Spanish, Italian and others. In addition, the CMS has

ample tools to allow content creators to pull from a vast repository of past information written by other writers for plug-n-play content and media insertion. Because NSN has such a large, distributed team, the platform is also designed with non-technical users in mind, with built in tagging & search tools to re-use and re-mix content.

A User-friendly System
We built a platform that can support inputting data from multiple languages such as English, Spanish, Italian and others. In addition, the CMS has ample tools to allow content creators to pull from a vast repository of past information written by other writers for
plug-n-play content and media insertion. Because NSN has such a large, distributed team, the platform is also designed with non-technical users in mind, with built in tagging & search tools to re-use and re-mix content.
Development
Icreon conducted a deep data migration to pull information from multiple legacy SQL Server and MySQL systems to create a master copy of data within Drupal.
Today, Drupal’s database now powers the Nokia’s web content across dozens of countries simultaneously.
