AWS has announced that Switzerland’s telecoms company and IT services provider Swisscom has selected AWS as its preferred public cloud provider for its enterprise IT. Swisscom is pursuing a cloud-first strategy and will use AWS to increase IT agility, drive operational efficiencies, and accelerate time to market for new information and communications technology (ICT) features and services.
As part of its overall digital transformation, Swisscom will migrate to AWS a wide range of core applications that power its enterprise resource planning, operational support system (OSS), business support system (BSS), analytics, contact center, and communications provisioning workloads.
Swisscom will also leverage AWS’s infrastructure and breadth and depth of services to explore how it can build a reliable, scalable, secure, and cost-effective 5G Core in the cloud that would enable rapid development and deployment of new 5G services for its customers.
In addition, Swisscom engineers and developers will be able to automate hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups, as well as deploy new applications in minutes.
Across the company, Swisscom will evolve their current data pipeline into a cloud-based Data Mesh, making use of AWS’s advanced analytics offerings, such as Amazon Kinesis for scalable and durable real-time data streaming.
