“SAP – the precious gem of Atos Origin”

Milan, Italy - February 16, 2004

Success in all industries in over ten years of SAP experience

Atos Origin, an international information technology services provider, is one of the major sponsors of the SAP Forum 2004 scheduled for February 18-19 at the Fiera di Milano.

In Milan, Atos Origin will be presenting its most recent experience developed together with clients as well as dedicated solutions for vertical markets, such as Paper and Film, CPG and Pharmaceuticals, illustrating some concrete examples of implementation.

One of Italy's foremost utility companies, striving for excellence in service, has developed, together with Atos Origin, the "Progetto PLM Nuovi Contatori" (PLM Project for New Electricity Meters). This project is designed to achieve real-time management of users and their power consumption. In the field of pharmaceuticals, recently faced with radical changes due to globalization of business processes and necessary focus on sales and distribution, Atos Origin has started working alongside a leading pharmaceutical company to develop an ambitious SAP project that fully integrates management and automated systems.

Another project developed together with a prominent manufacturing and services company operating in the design, development and activation of new generation integrated multi-service networks intends to implement an SAP HR solution, whose aim is the dynamic and fully integrated management of Human Resources: from initial recruitment to a wide range of career opportunities offered within the company. The project has been developed on the basis of a strategic overview of Human Resource management, as part of a far-reaching renewal process expressed in the corporate mission.

"To date Atos Origin has developed some 1,200 projects using SAP around the world," confirms Giuseppe De Gregori, Operations Vice President. "Out of these, more than 120 projects have been implemented in Italy, where Atos Origin relies on 350 highly motivated professionals, proving the existence of a thriving, solid partner-client relationship. Atos Origin's offer is further enhanced by expertise in managing SAP systems from the standpoint of outsourcing as well as ASP fruition."

Present at Booth 44 on the SAP Forum, Atos Origin will showcase its solutions on Enterprise Portal, Human Resources, Business Intelligence, Warehouse Management, Product lifecycle Management. A corner will be dedicated to the solutions for small and medium sized companies.
