Telenor Norway, Norway’s largest provider of telecommunications and digital services, is transitioning to the cloud with Accenture to help modernize its IT organization. This initiative is a crucial step in Telenor’s journey to become a software and product-driven company and will enable improved customer experience and revenue growth.

Building on more than 25 years of collaboration, both companies will combine the talent of Accenture and Telenor Norway’s teams to upskill Telenor’s IT organization with software and data proficiencies.

Øystein Langerak, a managing director who leads Accenture Communications, Media and Technology industry group in Norway, said: “Telenor recognized the urgency of transforming from a telco to a techco in order to accelerate their growth and create competitive differentiation.”

Torbjørn Eik-Nes, managing director of Accenture in Norway, added: “We are supporting Telenor in their digital transformation while also developing a lasting culture of innovation. This will enable Telenor to stay agile and competitive in the telecommunications industry.”

Torbjørn Larsen, CIO of Telenor Norway, said: “The key to our success lies in building the culture and cultivating the skills required to become a software-defined and product-driven company that delivers the best and most valuable products and services to our customers.

“I look forward to our collaboration with Accenture to accelerate the ongoing digitalization at Telenor.”
