Paris, 13 September 2006

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, has been chosen by the Louvre Museum for the operation and application management of its website www.louvre.fr, developed using the Blue Martini software suite. With Atos Worldline, the Louvre Museum now benefits from hosting, development and maintenance services for its on-line interface from a single provider.

Following the creation of www.louvre.fr 10 years earlier, the Louvre Museum launched a new version of its website in June 2005 that put the focus on rich editorial content (35,000 objects and 140,000 pieces of artwork accessible). The overhaul included the content, user-friendliness and browser capabilities of the site. With this new site, the Louvre Museum offers its 7 million annual visitors a new cultural and information tool with fluid, horizontal navigation.

At the end of the website transition period following the overhaul, the Louvre Museum commissioned Atos Worldline to operate its website.
Atos Worldline is responsible for the hosting, operation and applications maintenance of the new version of the website, which was developed on software architecture from Blue Martini Software, a software publisher specializing in e-CRM and whose expertise Atos Worldline has integrated on its technological platform.
