Ericsson IT System Expert Cloud Adaptations in Madrid, Spain

Today operators & enterprise customers are looking into how they can reduce their costs associated to their IT infrastructure as well as how to decouple their network functions and applications from physical dependencies on bare metal monolithic architectures and OS’s. They are also looking at how to utilize their resources optimally. They are in a unique position to use future proof scalable, on-demand, automated, private, public and hybrid cloud solutions to secure service quality and security management. The main needs are as follows: minimize up-front investments, minimize operational (recurrent) costs – adopting cloud technologies while keeping outsourcing, energy, and data center expenses at bay, maximize resource utilization, identify underutilized resources, create compelling service offerings introducing new services that fully exploit the elasticity of cloud resources, become more agile without compromising service quality, differentiate from over-the-top competitors where the network should play to dramatically improve the customer experience, and guarantee security.

Cloud Solution & NFVI are passing long software engineering cycle and before delivery, requirement engineering, design and software development integrate the components of the solution. However, it is needed to anticipate the requirements of all users, and a single best or optimal system configuration is impossible and development of Customer adaptations integrated with main solution components through open API’s is mandatory: clear understanding of user and task requirements is a challenge in the development of computer-based interactive systems. Customer Adaptation gives guidance on user-centered design activities throughout the life cycle of cloud-based interactive systems.
