Atos and IBM announced the expansion of a strategic global alliance to help companies accelerate their digital transformation and optimise business processes.

The expanded alliance includes an intended focus on the development of joint offerings built on Atos’ vertical decarbonised solution and service delivery assets, powered by IBM.

As a result of the alliance, clients can expect to have access to industry-specific automation solutions using AI and hybrid cloud technologies to enable digital acceleration and increase productivity and reduce costs. Atos and IBM will work together to address business challenges to serve the Manufacturing, Energy and Utilities, Oil and Gas, Retail and Transportation sectors.

The expected areas of focus will include:

“This alliance marks a new step in Atos’ strategy to provide concrete business applications to its customers by working with the world-class leader IBM to power the next wave of innovation. It also resonates with our industry-specific approach focused on delivering tangible business outcomes,” says Nourdine Bihmane, head of Decarbonisation Business Line and head of Growing Markets at Atos.

“IBM and Atos share a similar vision of an AI and data-driven digital transformation. Together, we will address some of the most pressing challenges facing organisations today to optimise their operations within plants, buildings and public infrastructure.”

“Expanding IBM’s alliance with Atos reinforces our mission to work with some of the most forward-thinking, customer-centric ecosystem partners in the world to accelerate client digital transformations,” says Bob Lord, SVP cognitive applications and ecosystems, IBM.

“Atos delivers leading solutions that optimise business processes to produce tangible outcomes for asset-heavy industries.
