The Nueva Pescanova Group, Telefónica Spain and Hewlett Packard Enterprise will work together to advance the digital transformation process of the Spanish multinational dedicated to the fishing, farming, processing and marketing of seafood.
Specifically, the agreement contemplates the centralization of the information of the Nueva Pescanova Group and the homogenization of its technological platforms in the different countries in which it operates. In this way, the company will have a shared environment with which it will improve the security, control and management of its information and, therefore, gain in terms of efficiency and productivity.
This alliance is committed to a co-location model that will improve the performance of the Nueva Pescanova Group’s digital infrastructures and will be essential for the interconnection of all the multinational’s headquarters. Telefónica Spain will be in charge of the design of this system, hosting the multinational’s data processing center in its facilities in Madrid and managing the project’s connectivity and security solutions. This will allow the Group’s IT teams to focus their work on tasks with high added value and will have a positive impact on environmental sustainability.
For its part, HPE has based its technological proposal on HPE GreenLake, which offers, under a single cloud platform and in a hybrid model, to increase the productivity of Grupo Nueva Pescanova’s IT department with security, resilience and greater energy efficiency. HPE’s proposed technology consumption model helps promote sustainability in technology by eliminating over-provisioning, making it easy to adapt technology infrastructures as needed, and enabling asset recovery at end-of-use.
Likewise, Telefónica Spain and HPE will jointly develop new solutions in the field of security, integration in the cloud and the improvement of the usability of the Group’s ERP and will manage the entire data network and fixed communications of the multinational, with the final result of a homogenization and standardization of the company’s headquarters throughout the world, even contemplating the casuistry and particularities of each country.
The agreement was ratified during a meeting held at the Telefónica headquarters in Madrid between the CEO of the Nueva Pescanova Group, Ignacio Gonzalezthe president of Telefónica Spain, Aemilius Gaiusand the president of HPE in southern Europe, JOsé Maria de la Torre.
Ignacio González has stated that “at the Nueva Pescanova Group we are immersed in an ambitious process of digital transformation and the alliance with HPE and Telefónica Spain is key to achieving our objectives in this regard. The unification of our technological platforms and information throughout the world not only implies advantages in terms of security, access and efficiency, but also better information management, which will allow us to be more agile in decision-making”.
In the words of Emilio Gayo, “at Telefónica Spain we are very happy with the project to transform the digital infrastructure of Nueva Pescanova and also do it in collaboration with a leading multinational such as HPE. The work that we are going to develop in the Nueva Pescanova Group, and which has to do with connectivity and digital services, forms part of the broad portfolio of high value-added solutions that has made us a benchmark partner in this field for companies, inside and outside of Spain”.
For his part, José María de la Torre commented that “in order to meet the challenge that the Nueva Pescanova Group had before it, we proposed that they commit to an as-a-service model with our market-leading proposal, HPE GreenLake, which provides them with a hybrid model in which workloads have the same consumption experience, regardless of their location. In this way, we help to achieve greater flexibility and agility in the provision of corporate services at a global level, as well as an improvement in availability and security and greater alignment with its environmental and sustainability objectives”.
