About the Company

Nokia Corporation (NYSE: NOK) is one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturers. With headquarters in Keilaniemi of Espoo, Finland, this Finnish telecommunications company is best known today for its leading range of mobile phones. Nokia also produces mobile phone infrastructure and other telecommunications equipment for applications such as traditional voice telephony, ISDN, broadband access, professional mobile radio, voice over IP, wireless LAN and a line of satellite receivers. Nokia provides mobile communication equipment for every major market and protocol, including GSM, CDMA, and WCDMA. Nokia was established in 1865 as a wood-pulp mill by Fredrik Idestam on the banks of Nokia rapids. Finnish Rubber Works established its factories in the beginning of 20th century nearby and began using Nokia as its brand. Shortly after World War I Finnish Rubber Works acquired Nokia wood mills as well as Finnish Cable Works, a producer of telephone and telegraph cables. All three companies were merged as Nokia Corporation in 1967. The name Nokia originated from the river which flowed through the town of the same name (Nokia).

In the 1970s Nokia became more involved in the telecommunications industry by developing the Nokia DX 200, a digital switch for telephone exchanges. In the 1980s, Nokia offered a series of personal computers called MikroMikko [1], however, these operations were sold to International Computers, Ltd. (ICL), which was later merged with Fujitsu-Siemens AG. Nokia also began developing mobile phones for the NMT network; unfortunately, the company ran afoul of serious financial problems in the 1990s and streamlined its manufacturing of mobile phones, mobile phone infrastructure, and other telecommunications areas, divesting itself of other items, such as televisions and personal computers. In 2004, Nokia resorted to similar streamlining practices with layoffs and organizational restructuring, although on a significantly smaller scale. This, however, diminished Nokia's public image in Finland, and produced a number of court cases along with, at least, one television show critical of Nokia. Recently, Nokia joined other mobile phone manufacturers to embrace Taiwanese Original Device Manufacturers. Nokia signed a contract with BenQ, a Taiwanese Original Device Manufacturer, to develop three high-end mobile phones, which are scheduled to retail by the end of 2005.

Nokia streamlined its global organizational structure to strengthen its focus on convergence. It has since established a leading brand presence in many local markets.Nokia in the Region of Asia – Pacific A leading player in mobile communications in the Asia Pacific. product and solutions support to the 20 diverse markets and Nokia offices in the Asia Pacific. while Nokia Research Centre .the corporate research unit .

To fill the gap. To satisfy these business needs. there was a first version of project manual to follow. the starting point of software engineering practices in Nokia Mobile Phones/Information Management was that there were no clearly defined processes to guide the software development according to the business needs.

Nokia has rapidly moved from functionally oriented organisation to a business process oriented mode. IM organisation must learn and implement working methods which enable the creation of business process oriented information systems. and our information systems have not followed the change as fast as they should.
