JEDDAH: Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) announced that it has signed a SR180 million ($48 million), three-year contract with Accenture to help speed the delivery and enhance the customer experience of mobile services for its Mobily subscribers in Saudi Arabia.

“As a result, we will be able to provide enhanced customer service by accelerating the delivery of new offers, and introduce new campaigns and promotions to our client base, as well as improve cost management across our BSS capabilities.”
Gerardo Canta, managing director of Accenture’s Communications and High Technology Middle East, said: “BSS is used by communications companies to manage their services and their customer base, so it’s truly the lifeline to customers.”
He said: “BSS transformation is an imperative for communications service providers such as Mobily that want to maintain their competitive edge and bring innovation to their customer operations.”
Accenture will also help Mobily achieve high service levels by implementing standard processes, methods and tools for software development and deployment, as well as data analytics to track performance, monitor progress, and measure and target subscribers’ requirements.

Nutanix offers cloud-hosted virtual desktop solution

DUBAI: Cloud-hosted virtual desktop provider Nutanix is offering a 30-day trial of its Xi Frame product that lets employees access company apps on any device and from any location.

“Physical desktops and laptops are becoming a poor fit for today’s dynamic, digital workplace.

A digital workspace provides greater flexibility, so that employees can access the applications and data they need— from any device and any location,” company statement said.

“This is a much better fit for the way many businesses, across many industries, operate today. Instead of running on a local device, the applications and services of the digital workspace run in a data center and output is transmitted quickly and securely to the user across a network.”

Nutanix touts its virtual desk solution as easy to use, has global scalability, elastic by design, secured and developer friendly.

“Users gain easy access to remote virtual desktops or the ability to stream one or multiple applications on any device, with a multi-cloud platform designed for agility, performance, security, and flexibility,” the company said.
