In early May, Atos announced the launch of Atos Business Outcomes-as-a-Service (Atos BOaaS), a 5G, Edge, and IoT offering jointly developed with Dell Technologies. Atos BOaaS leverages the benefits of Cloud-to-Edge (edge) and Cloud-to-Far-Edge (remote edge) architecture to extract commercially usable data through artificial intelligence. The implementation, piloting and control of the solution is automated from end to end.
Atos, a French digital services company founded in 1997, is an international leader in digital transformation with 111,000 employees, with an annual turnover of approximately 11 billion euros. European number one in cloud, cybersecurity and supercomputers, the group delivers integrated solutions to all sectors in 71 countries. Atos is a pioneer in decarbonization services and products and is committed to providing secure and decarbonized digital solutions to its customers.
On 30 April 2018, Atos ‘general meeting approved Atos’ raison d’être and enshrined it in the company’s articles of association: “contribution to shaping the information space”. Thanks to its skills and services, Atos supports the development of knowledge, education and research in a multicultural approach and contributes to the development of scientific and technological excellence. Internationally, Atos enables its customers, its employees and, more generally, the largest number of people to live, work and develop sustainably and with full confidence in the information space.
Dell Technologies, an American company created by Michael Dell in 1984 under the name PC’s Limited, based in Round Rock, Texas, is a major player in the design and construction of computers, but also a provider of technological solutions for information (IT). It offers multi-cloud and big data solutions, which are based on a modern data center infrastructure.
Its data storage platform, Streaming Data Platform (SDP), allows companies to access a single solution for all their data (streaming or not). This solution delivers out-of-the-box functionality and supports high-speed data capture with an open source, automatic scaling streaming storage solution. The offering leverages open source technologies like Apache Flink, Spark and Pravega and application connections like Boomi and Kafka to enable accessibility to a wide range of features and engines. With a programming model that drives functionality across multiple engines, SDP helps reduce application development time and allows real-time business insights to be extracted as data is ingested, eliminating all operational and storage inefficiencies.
Edge computing adds complexity to digital systems, and IoT generates large amounts of valuable unused data. By combining Atos and Dell’s expertise, Atos BOaaS enables companies to quickly achieve tangible and repeatable business results from IoT data streams and analytics. The solution also makes it possible to control an IoT ecosystem from a single dashboard.
Atos BOaaS Introduces Dell’s Streaming Data Platform, one of the most innovative edge AI applications that creates pipelines reliable, fast and secure data from edge to cloud, enabling data analysis. Atos brings together all technology components in complementary services in an on-demand consumption model that allows customers to focus on the operational benefits of data analytics, on the edge and in the cloud.
Atos BOaaS revolutionizes digital operations by freeing companies from on-site technical support, reducing their CO2 footprint and saving every customer hundreds of tons of CO22 Per year.
The annual economic and environmental impact of Atos BOaaS can be calculated as follows: At 1,000 retail companies, the solution saves 66,000 hours on maintenance, compliance and updates; and up to + 1% to 2% in revenue, equivalent to $ 4.2 million in digital media savings.
Atos’ innovation capability was recognized on May 4 at Dell Technologies World in Las Vegas with Dell Technologies Global Alliances 2022 – Global Excellence in Innovation Awardwhich marks Atos’ commitment to supporting the success of its customers in the data age.
