EU computing vendor announces consulting business
Atos has announced the launch of Technology Consulting, a new portfolio of advisory services for C-suite executives, designed to enable them to best leverage existing and new technologies to achieve their business objectives. First launched in France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK, Technology Consulting will operate on a global scale, advising clients how to achieve concrete business outcomes. This new offering is pivotal to the transformation strategy of the Atos Tech Foundations business line.
At its Analyst Day in Paris on June 7, Atos announced a redefinition of the Tech Foundations’ portfolio to better address key customer priorities. Today, businesses must stay innovative and agile to survive and thrive amidst the complexity of the edge and cloud continuum. This requires a stronger alignment of IT decision making and implementation with business strategy.

As part of a global IT leader, Technology Consulting has the footprint to deliver at scale, while being able to create customized digital journeys thanks to its local presence and client proximity. It leverages expertise from the entire Atos ecosystem, including technology partners, hyperscalers and the academic world. Technology Consulting is orchestrated by a team of global and local experts, and will grow through internal mobility and external hires. It aims to maximize the potential of generative artificial intelligence, data, analytics, automation and Internet of Things to help clients manage increasingly complex digital environments while addressing local market specificities.
Stéphane Richard, Global Head of Technology Advisory & Customized Services, Atos, said: “Technology Consulting builds both on Atos’ business insight and IT expertise and leverages proven methodologies, global capabilities and local touch. We are doers — leaders in employee experience for instance — with hands-on experience demonstrated by long-term customer relationships that average more than 20 years. Technology Consulting supports the multidisciplinary nature of digital transformation and ensures technology is fully leveraged, acting as a solid foundation for ever-evolving business strategies.”
