Ambition 2016 is the Atos roadmap for becoming a Tier One player and the preferred European global brand for IT services. In January 2014, Atos started to implement its new three-year plan focused on delivering profitable growth through disruptive and innovative offerings and strategic partnerships.

Anchor global leadership in Managed Services Thanks to our scale, business mix and global coverage, Atos is a recognized top tier player in the marketplace for large managed services deals. As our Managed Services business rapidly evolves towards higher value added services, Atos is focused on enhancing the quality and efficiency of our offerings to further increase customer satisfaction.

Reinforce growth and profitability in Systems Integration Atos is strengthening its Systems Integration business with an enhanced vertical market dimension and differentiated offerings. Offshoring capability will be increased from 33% to 50% by 2016. We are also optimizing end-to-end processes, and developing new business opportunities globally with offerings in Application Management, SAP and Solutions, as well as key sustainability differentiators.

Bring to market disruptive and innovative offerings Around 40% of our revenue comes from innovative offerings that we have developed in recent years, in high growth areas such as Cloud services, Mobility, Big Data & Security (including Cybersecurity & Mission Critical Systems) through Bull technologies. We will continue to invest in innovation to anticipate new trends, working in strategic partnerships with technology leaders to enhance our solutions.

Enhance number one position in Cloud services in Europe Canopy is the leading European platform for Cloud services. Our acquisition of Bull in 2014 has reinforced this position and brought advanced technical capabilities. By 2016, our ambition is for Cloud services revenue to represent at least €700 million.

Expand foothold in the US and accelerate growth in emerging markets The acquisition of Xerox ITO business will transform our business in the US market, the largest global IT Services market. It establishes a broader geographic footprint for Atos as we seek to increase our position in Asia Pacific by leveraging existing global clients. We also envisage substantial growth in India, Middle East and Africa from strong customer demand for Atos’ industry expertise and solutions.

Provide strategic flexibility to Worldline The successful Initial Public Offering of our payments and transactional services subsidiary in June 2014 has positioned Worldline to play a major role in the consolidation of the European payments market through strategic acquisition in new geographies, accelerating the development of its innovative technologies and payment solutions, and contributing to the digital transformation of its clients.
