IT partnership approach

IT partnership approach

The need: When the DSP joint venture was established in 2011 between the Dutch company DSM and China’s Sinochem, it looked for a long-term partner, a single service provider who could help implement a strong and simple IT governance structure and combine global consistency with local responsiveness.

The solution: DSP has entrusted Atos with three key areas of IT responsibility: the IT infrastructure, the SAP environment and the non-SAP environment. These have become the operational and communications foundation of the new company.

The benefit: Working together, Atos and DSP have enabled global delivery of the new IT services environment on time and within budget, with high levels of satisfaction from end users and a commitment to continuous review and improvement.
