Assignment: Technical Authority and Project Manager responsible for the design, development and implementation of a data analytics infrastructure for a leading telecommunication provider.
Term: 150+ days consultancy assignment.
Summary of services: An IBM Business Partner and Managed Servicers Provider required an experienced solution architect and technical project authority to lead a large project implementing a Hadoop based data analytic solution for a large telecommunications company. Due to illness this could not be provided using internal staff and Nubo provided the required consultant on a contractual basis.

Security was critical to the project, ensuring remote access to the system was only available to authorised users.
Nubo were responsible for the following elements:
As a result of the success of this project the MSP has further managed to secure support contracts for the maintenance of the hardware and firmware of the IBM infrastructure.
