Siemens Awards Atos Contract to Provide a Platform Built on SAP HANA® and Based on the bullion Server for a Range of Data Services

Press Releases   •   Jun 17, 2015 09:01 BST

Paris, 17 June 2015

Atos, an international leader in digital services, and Siemens, Europe’s largest engineering company, signed a six-year, multi-million Euro contract to provide a platform running in the cloud and built on the SAP HANA® platform for data services to meet Siemens’ growing business demands. The platform – based on bullion, the enterprise high-end x86 server from Bull – will be deployed on a worldwide basis to support more than 100,000 Siemens personnel across the whole Siemens Group.

The contract is leading-edge in terms of size and also in the use of technology, which includes both Bull and EMC hardware and software. When complete, this project will be one of the largest implementations of the SAP HANA platform in the world.

Siemens is implementing SAP HANA – the scalable, in-memory and cloud-enabled SAP platform – as part of its drive for innovation and its visionary move to a more collaborative business model. The move of a large proportion of its core business systems and processes from the classic SAP® ERP application to SAP HANA will increase cost-efficiency, agility and scalability, while also enabling improved organizational agility.

Atos will manage the transition to SAP HANA as one integrated project with measurable client outcomes such as cost reduction, in addition to IT deliverables. Atos also proposed an innovative business model, based on bullion, the latest generation of x86 servers developed by Bull integrated with EMC storage.

Norbert Kleinjohann, Siemens CIO, said: “The project is an essential enabler for the new Siemens business vision, providing the environment in which we can innovate to the benefit of our business. Atos, as our longstanding IT partner, is perfectly positioned to help us make the transition from SAP ERP to SAP HANA.”

Kari Kupila, CEO, Global Siemens Account at Atos, said: “Atos is proud to be the design and implementation partner for a project that is helping to improve the future of Siemens. We are delighted that Siemens has once again placed its trust in Atos to deliver this business-critical project.”

The Siemens-Atos alliance was founded in 2011 and forms one of the largest strategic relationships ever between a global engineering company and a global IT provider. It is built on three pillars. First, Siemens and Atos are business partners focused on driving new business opportunities and customer value through technology. Second, Siemens is the largest client of Atos, and Atos is the preferred provider of Siemens for systems integration, managed services and consulting services. Third, Siemens is the largest industrial shareholder of Atos.

Atos moves in as trailblazer with a new offer to enhance the drone value chain

Press Releases   •   Jun 17, 2015 08:58 BST

Le Bourget France, 17 June 2015

Atos, an international leader in digital services, presents its know-how in civilian professional drones and Bull technologies for the protection of sensitive areas at the International Air Show in Le Bourget, June 15 - 21, 2015.

As legislation moves forward, the civilian professional drone sector in France is on the up and up, across a range of areas: media, industry, public services, agriculture etc. The civilian drone sector has now reached a turning point, as players struggle to meet the expectations of major buyers. Civilian drones are also now playing a much heightened role in the protection of territory, defense, transport and industry. Their increasing numbers, their discretion, size and the simplicity of their operation, however, do entail certain risks. It is in this context that the Bull experts working at Atos have developed a ground-breaking solution to create a protective shield for areas vulnerable to drones.

Atos is industrializing and extending the entire drone value chain


Thanks to its expertise in spatial systems and work in close cooperation with its partners over the last 15 years with the main French and European earth observation entities (SPOT Image now AIRBUS DS Geo, CNES, ESA), Atos has the capacity to extend and industrialize the entire drone value chain. Atos is approaching customers with a unique offer to enable them to secure immediate benefits in terms of quality, security, costs, rapid deployment, and products built to last.

Atos has entered into and intends to pursue partnerships with players in the drone sector to produce a turnkey offer: consultancy and deployment in SAAS mode, including flight authorizations from the French civil aviation authority, collection of information picked up by drones, and analysis and correlation in real time with other earth observation data sources to provide results and innovate with new services and usages beyond the present scope of the profession.

Atos is capitalizing on its capacity for innovation, especially Cloud & Big Data, already deployed on recent projects: the SparkIndata consortium, a platform federating earth observation data sources (agriculture, town planning, security, climate, health etc.); datalift, a management solution for massive flows of heterogeneous data to administer and upgrade drone sector data and assist with the emergence of new ecosystems.

Bull technologies to protect sensitive areas against drone risks


The Bull solution aims to protect against two types of drone risk:

  • Infringement of confidentiality: images of industrial secrets, private life etc.
  • Physical risks to people and vital infrastructures, in the case of drones with offensive equipment.

When the area to be protected has been defined (buildings, monuments, events etc.), it takes only a few minutes to install the electronic surveillance equipment.

The Bull solution scans the area permanently, automatically pinpointing threats and threat levels by radio waves across a broad spectrum.

As soon as a threat is detected, the solution can act on the drone in two ways:

  • It forces the drone to land, enabling the law enforcement authorities to conduct the necessary investigations on the basis of data carried by the drone.
  • The Bull solution can also force the drone to retrace its steps, giving the authorities an insight into the geographic and human origins of the threat.

This ground-breaking, fully reliable system was produced thanks to the experience of Bull engineers in security, which has helped create intelligent jamming solutions for remote-controlled explosive devices, for example.

Atos, an international leader in digital services, has published its 2014 Corporate Responsibility Integrated Report following the guidelines set out by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

Our focus is to guide and accompany our clients on the path to environmental and social excellence using our own experience as well as our digital expertise. The fact that Atos is, this year, one of the first ICT companies to reach the GRI G4 Comprehensive level recognition demonstrates our excellence in sustainability and the progress we continue to make in our four priority areas: being a responsible employer, delivering sustainable excellence to our clients, being ethical and fair in all our business relationships, and reducing our corporate environmental footprint. The dedication of the Atos Business technologists is crucial to maintain a leadership position in the corporate and social responsibility area, thus meeting the high expectations of our stakeholders and at the same time helping our clients in their digital journey towards a more sustainable society.”

During 2014, Atos delivered on its sustainability commitments in the following areas:

  • In April, Atos launched a new employee shareholding plan “Sprint 2014,” helping to strengthen the relationship between the Group and its employees.
  • In May, Atos won the Forrester Groundswell Award for Excellence in Social Collaboration for its Zero email program in the Business-To-Employee: Employee Collaboration category.

Blue Yonder and Atos expose MBA students to the power of data analytics

Press Releases   •   Jun 04, 2015 10:37 BST

Leading predictive analytics specialists, Blue Yonder and digital experts, Atos team up to show London Business School MBA students how data analytics can solve real-world problems

London, 04 June 2015

Award-winning predictive analytics provider, Blue Yonder, and Atos, a leader in digital services, have partnered with London Business School (LBS) to create a unique event for MBA students to explore the power of data analytics to solve a range of business and public sector challenges. The event will demonstrate that technology and data analytics has moved from the IT department to the heart of business.

MBA students were introduced to the opportunities and challenges of collecting and analysing data for the benefit of business, at an event in Atos’s Business Technology Innovation Centre in London. Following a presentation of analytics business scenarios by Atos, students were able to hear from industry experts who had used data analytics to effectively improve their business outcomes, before coming back in two weeks’ time to present their own solutions to a panel of experts. On the panel were Rakesh Harji, MD, Blue Yonder and Christian Benson, Head of Analytics, from Atos.

Gah-Yi Vahn, Assistant Professor of Management Science and Operations, London Business School, who chaired the event, commented: “Big Data is an elusive buzzword everyone is talking about, and I am very pleased to have clarified what it means by introducing the students to successful business cases Blue Yonder and Atos have worked on.

“Existing analytics technology (both hard and soft) is already quite sophisticated and is waiting to be tapped by the right people who can identify the right business problems to apply it to. As using Big Data correctly can generate so much value, increased use of analytics technology in organisations is an inevitable trend. We added this course to the MBA program because future executives need to understand how Big Data analytics can affect decision-making and strategy to lead companies.”

Discussion groups and roundtables at the event were chaired by Blue Yonder and Atos to allow students to think for themselves about how they could apply data analytics to a range of real-world business issues.

Christian Benson, Head of Analytics, from Atos, said: “The students were given a high level overview of the complex world of data analytics and how it can be applied to make a real difference to some of the key challenges facing communities locally and across the globe. Data and analytics will play a larger than ever role in the 21st century; particularly in the way businesses or organisations compete with each other or improve cost efficiency. It has been a great experience to see budding business leaders from London Business School actively participate in building business cases for the science of data analytics.”

Rakesh Harji, MD, Blue Yonder, said: “Educating our future business leaders on how they can apply data science to their strategy is incredibly important in a competitive global economy. Analytics technologies can make a fundamental impact on the business landscape by weeding out inefficiencies, optimising workforces, reducing waste and enhancing the customer experience. The MBA student teams were very innovative in their application of Blue Yonder’s technology and successfully highlighted the broad value it can bring to business.”

Atos also announced that it is working in close partnership with Digital Guardian to offer this solution—a one-of-a-kind service in Europe.

Companies are increasingly threatened by both insider threats and by advanced malware. A single incident can have catastrophic consequences, including loss of revenue, negative publicity and reduced brand equity. In today’s massively interconnected world, it is increasingly difficult to protect confidential information—but Atos’ Data Loss Prevention service helps to do just that. It does so by combining the advantages of both data loss prevention and advanced malware detection using Digital Guardian’s unique single agent technology.

Since it is cloud-based, Atos’ Data Loss Prevention Service is deliverable anywhere in the world. This enables rapid deployment, scalability and a short payback period. This fully managed cloud service incorporates Atos’ Security Operation Center and expertise in DLP to provide a robust risk management service. It vastly simplifies deployment and ease of integration into already existing environments. It can also be deployed on-premise or as part of a risk management systems integration program.

The benefits provided by this new service include:

  • Cloud delivery for accelerated deployment and rapid investment recovery
  • Protection of critical business information
  • Regular reporting for improved management of critical information protection
  • Escalation of critical events
  • Combining with advanced malware detection technologies to help thwart today’s most sophisticated threats

Executive Perspective “ Atos is very excited to launch this new cloud offering in partnership with Digital Guardian,” said Chris Moret, Vice President Cybersecurity at Atos “Atos is already providing data loss prevention services to multiple customers today and through this partnership we hope to bring our unique service to many more clients. What is particularly exciting is how this service is delivered via the cloud and combines Digital Guardian data loss prevention technology and Atos SOC capabilities to provide an end-to end service that’s able to monitor, detect and mitigate data leakage 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.”

"Sensitive data is the lifeblood of organizations today – whether intellectual property, trade secrets or confidential client information,” said Doug Bailey, chief strategy officer at Digital Guardian. “Many companies do not have the resources and expertise to implement a data protection solution in the required time frame. Atos’ world class delivery capabilities combined with Digital Guardian, the market’s most comprehensive data protection solution offers customers the fastest time to protection of their critical assets."

ARAMIS, led by Atos Worldgrid, selected as a world-class R&D initiative by the French government programme called "Investments for the Future"

Press Releases   •   May 28, 2015 11:03 BST

An unparalleled level of cyber security for critical infrastructures

Paris 28 May 2015

The ARAMIS consortium (Robust Architecture for Critical Industrial Control System Infrastructure) was nominated to be funded by the Investments for the Future program and endorsed by the global competitive cluster, Minalogic.

The ARAMIS consortium is composed by key players with a unique expertise in industrial control systems and cyber security:

  • Seclab, an innovative business which designs and markets a unique physical network segregation technology,
  • Grenoble Universities chosen for their expertise in the field of encryption and software engineering,
  • CEA LETI, a research institute for electronics and information technologies, and the benchmark in trust anchors**, renowned for its CESTI certification for electronic components and onboard software,
  • Atos Worldgrid, world leader in Smart Energy, and publisher and integrator of industrial control systems (SCADA*) for Critical Operators, is leading the consortium.

The ARAMIS project involves the development of an innovative system capable of bringing an unrivalled level of security to existing or new industrial control system architectures. The innovation consists of physically partitioning networks and filtering data exchanges to reject all data flows identified as unauthorised and, thus, potentially malicious.

The specific aim of the ARAMIS project involves supplying these functionalities in a single, robust system which can be implemented without impacting on applications in the existing industrial control system, while simultaneously providing protection from attacks, whether generated externally, via the internet, or internally.

Philippe Vannier, Executive Vice-President, Big Data & Security, and CTO of the Atos Group says: "The cyber security of industrial control-command systems, and particularly of Critical Operators, is a key concern of players in this field (operators, integrators, hardware manufacturers) and of government authorities, particularly of ANSSI, the French national agency for IT systems security. Interconnectivity with other networks and through the internet is a source of value added but also of vulnerability. Our ambition is for ARAMIS to mark a turning point in the cyber security of critical infrastructures.”

The security of industrial control systems is one of the priority areas of the "digital security" call for proposals, organised under the Investments for the Future initiative steered by the Commissariat-General for Investment. The selected proposals aim to bring innovative and high-performance solutions to confront the latest threats to these systems.

The ARAMIS proposal involves the development of a system that enables data exchange between networks with differing security levels by providing physical isolation while preserving each network's respective security with a trust anchor**, and is capable of filtering the industrial protocols and data exchanged (business-specific aspect) for intrinsic safety.

ARAMIS has been developed based on the most rigorous standards in force in the fields of cyber security and systems security. This system addresses the principles of partitioning industrial IT systems by level of criticality, as described in IEC standard 62443 and ISO 27019 on the energy sector, and by ANSSI in its recommendations concerning the cyber security of industrial systems and the secure management of IT systems (DAT-NT-22/ANSSI/SDE/NP of 20 February 2015): "to protect data flows, it is necessary to simultaneously implement partitioning, filtering, encryption and inbound and outbound network traffic authentication."

* SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition): a large-scale remote management system, enabling real-time processing of a high volume of telemetric data and remote supervision of technical installations.

** Trust anchor: The trust anchor can be equated with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), that is, a high-security hardware component that stores and manipulates sensitive data (cryptographic keys, certificates, signatures), with complementary functions, such as authenticity guarantee, but also providing a guarantee of the integrity and authenticity of a variety of data exchanges (messages and communications) within the system.

Option to receive the 2014 dividend payment in shares

Press Releases   •   May 28, 2015 10:33 BST

Paris, 28 May 2015

The Company’s Combined General Meeting of Shareholders, held on 28 May 2015, approved the proposed dividend for fiscal year 2014 of €0.80 per share, and has decided that each shareholder will be allowed to elect to receive the dividend payment either in cash or in new shares of the Company.

The option to receive the dividend payment in new shares of the Company can be exercised by the shareholders between 4 June 2015 and 17 June 2015 inclusive, by sending their request to the financial intermediaries authorized to pay said dividend or, for shareholders listed in the issuer registered accounts held by the Company, to its authorized representative (Société Générale, Département des Titres et Bourse – Services des Assemblées – SGSS/SBO/CIS/ISS/GMS – 32, rue du Champ de Tir, CS 30812 – 44308 Nantes Cedex 3). After 17 June 2015, or if the option is not exercised, the dividend shall only be paid in cash.

The maximum total number of new shares which may be issued for the purpose of the dividend payment in shares is 1,275,544 shares, which represents 1.25% of the share capital and of the voting rights of the Company at the date of the General Meeting of Shareholders.

The issuance price of the new shares of the Company which will be issued in consideration for the dividend is set at € 63.38, and is equal to 90% of the average opening prices on Euronext Paris regulated market over the twenty trading days before 28 May 2015, i.e. the date of the Combined General Meeting of Shareholders, minus the dividend amount and rounded up to the next highest euro cent.

If the amount of the dividends for which the option is exercised by a shareholder does not correspond to a round number of shares, such shareholder shall receive the immediately lower number of shares and the balance in cash.

The ex-dividend date for the 2014 fiscal year dividend shall be 4 June 2015 and payment will start on 26 June 2015.

The new ordinary shares of the Company issued in consideration for the dividend will carry dividend rights as from 1 January 2015 and shall be the object of listing requests on Euronext Paris.

The newly-issued shares will be of the same class and equivalent to the ordinary shares of the Company already listed on Euronext Paris (Compartiment A – code ISIN FR0000051732) and will therefore carry the same rights and restrictions as common shares in circulation, as described in the Company’s Articles of Association and the 2014 Atos Registration Document (available on www.atos.net).
