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.

Our Work

With operations in multiple countries and dozens of websites to be managed, Icreon worked with Nokia to create an effective way of maintaining

all site properties by migrating all of Nokia’s web sites to a centralized location.

A multi-dimensional Content Management System

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. To fix this, we conducted an large-scale database migration 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.

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.
Legacy Data Migration
With dozens of local websites for national branches of NSN, we needed to support a way to get all the data from different databases into a single location. We 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.
