Wireless Telecommunications: Nokia

Show Summary Details

Preview

Good telecommunication systems, especially wireless telecommunications play no small part in the development of effective IT strategies. Nokia also incorporates the same totally integrated management (TIM) in its operations as the ones used by other Level 3 IT users which is demonstrated through partnering strategies between clients and suppliers, compromising the standards of the open industry, and the supply chain management that the company uses on an international level. Because Nokia is one of the most successful players in the mobile telecommunications industry, this chapter concentrates on the strategies and technologies involved in how Nokia's products facilitate the strategies of leading IT users. Also, the chapter provides an account of Nokia's rise to success, and an examination of how IT is integrated within the company' demand and supply management system.
