Introduction

Atos isn’t going to compete with other SIs on labor arbitrage or low cost in the North American market. Instead, it will focus on the customer journey to hybrid IT and service quality through automation. Its biggest challenge will be to grow organically in the US.

Highlights

  • Atos has become a leading European SI through acquisition. The acquisition of Xerox ITO has more than doubled its North American revenues, but it’s still an unknown brand in the region. It is banking on its ability to execute on its IT transformation strategy to bring success – an expertise it has honed on possibly the largest IT transformation project in the world.
