Global IT Services Leader to Sell and Support Managed Objects BSM Solution in the French Market

Managed Objects, the Business Service Management company and Atos Origin, one of the world's largest IT operation services companies, announced today they signed a partnership agreement where Atos Origin will resell the company's Business Service Management (BSM) software in France. In addition, Atos Origin will provide a base of consultants for customers seeking assistance with BSM project management or implementation. The agreement presents exponential growth opportunities for both companies in the BSM market which is predicted to exceed $1 billion in the next two years.

The agreement enables Managed Objects to tap the global reach, support and expertise for which Atos Origin is especially well known and by extension – balances a combined direct and indirect sales strategy. On the other hand, Atos Origin will add Managed Objects' leading-edge BSM technology to its portfolio of offerings, and enhance its capabilities to design and integrate value added solutions, for improving the IT operations of its customers.

“There is a clear trend in France towards solutions that simplify the complexities of managing information technology infrastructures,” said Frederic Glaudot, Atos Origin. “Managed Objects BSM accomplishes this by enabling large enterprises to effectively monitor, manage and measure the services IT provides to the business. BSM is essential to complete our consultancy and integration solutions for IT production – we are pleased to count Managed Objects as a partner for BSM solutions.”

“BSM continues to outpace growth in the enterprise software sector because it solves a pressing pain universally felt in markets around the world,” said Sean Larner, managing director of Managed Objects' European operations. “The partnership with a global leader like Atos Origin adds considerable strength to our presence in France and indeed adds value to our overall channel strategy. We are very pleased to have the earned backing of a world-renowned consultancy such as Atos Origin.”
