HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announces a partnership with consultancy firm CGI and Google Cloud to move and store phone activation and performance data at the Google Cloud Region in Hamina, Finland. The move will deliver an even better customer and device experience for Nokia phone users, by improving the speed and accuracy of device enhancements delivered to Nokia phones. By using Google Cloud's advanced data analytics and machine learning technologies, combined with CGI´s cloud and data science expertise, HMD Global can fully leverage data analytics to benefit Nokia phone fans around the world. The first Nokia smartphones to begin storing data to the new centre will be new Nokia smartphones starting from the Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2 and the Nokia 2.2, with data from earlier Nokia smartphone models* being migrated to Hamina after the Android Q update starting later this year and completed in 2020.
This move further reinforces HMD Global’s commitment to adhere to all applicable European security measures and legislation, including EU data privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
CGI created the world-class infrastructure between the back-end data collection and smartphones with an efficiently built architecture and optimised cost structure. HMD Global also leverages CGI’s expertise in advanced analytics to carefully operate and monitor the solution to maximize its potential.
