Nokia Reorganizes: Promises Inovative Services Faster

Posted by Kallan Dahn Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Nokia is going to do some proverbial house cleaning in their "Services and Software" Unit. Nokia has decided that it needed to consolidate the software delivery services into one nice package. (not a bad idea if you ask me) The companies Internet-Centric focus will remain unchanged, and current content delivery services are not expected to be discontinued, just consolidated. Lucky for employees that Nokia maintains a good track record with regard to pink slipping their employees. Nokia expects most of the 200 affected workers will be able to be re-assigned to new projects, or given a different role within the unit.

"This year we plan to hire more people into the Services & Software unit than the number of affected employees, so we expect that many employees will be able to transition to new jobs within Nokia," said Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President, Services & Software.

Nokia hinted at "Context Aware" Services delivered to users pockets. Nokia may be trying to hit the inside track to user targeted Advertisement on Cell phones, or they may have something a little less sinister up their sleeves. Either way they believe the re-organization will give them faster time to market with emphasis on new innovative products and services.
