Atos and IBM Further Partnership for Digital Transformation in the Financial Services Industry

Atos and IBM have announced they are expanding their global relationship to help banks and insurance companies address their increased security and regulatory compliance demands when moving their workloads and applications to the cloud. With the goal of helping companies modernize to meet consumer demand, Atos and IBM intend to support financial services clients through the creation of a new Atos Cloud Center of Excellence.

According to the companies, as financial services institutions balance the need to drive innovation by delivering high-value services while addressing strict security and compliance requirements, hybrid cloud environments have become increasingly important. To help move the financial services industry forward, Atos intends to migrate and modernize customer mission-critical workloads to the IBM Cloud for Financial Services using the platform's built-in security and compliance protocols. The IBM Cloud for Financial Services features security capabilities including confidential computing technology and “Keep Your Own Key” encryption.

The Atos Cloud Center of Excellence will offer technology and financial services expertise for clients backed by dedicated Atos professionals trained on IBM Cloud for Financial Services, IBM Cloud Paks, and Red Hat OpenShift, providing local language assistance.

Atos says its planned work to support the IBM Cloud for Financial Services through the new Atos Center of Excellence reinforces its mission to deliver application modernization and hybrid cloud transformation at scale, which is enabled by Atos OneCloud—an initiative from Atos to accelerate its clients' migration to the cloud through a one-stop shop offering industry specific go-to-market and organization.

Atos also offers automation services including Robotic Process Automation, AI-driven intelligent workflows and business processes reengineering accelerated by IBM Cloud Pak for Data and IBM Cloud Pak for Integration.

Atos and IBM announced the expansion of their global relationship in January 2021 with the intent to help clients accelerate their digital transformation efforts with hybrid cloud and industry-specific automation solutions designed to increase productivity and reduce costs.

Atos OneCloud combines a set of 10 offerings to help clients accelerate migration to the cloud. It also includes a range of services in collaboration with a world class partner ecosystem including IBM and RedHat, which encompasses cloud advisory consulting, application transformation expertise and prebuilt cloud accelerators underpinned by Atos' leading cybersecurity offerings.
