Outstanding System Integrator Atos Origin Benelux wins Oracle Partner 2006 Award

Atos Origin has won the Special Oracle Partner 2006 Award in the Outstanding System Integrator category. This award is made on the strength of the innovative skills which Atos Origin has used to bring new Oracle solutions, such as Oracle Fusion, onto the market.

Caroline Wouters, Alliance & Channel Director of Oracle Benelux: “This year the Outstanding System Integrator Award, targeted specially at system integrators, has been awarded to Atos Origin. Atos Origin won the prize for its innovative approach in technology-oriented market solutions – particularly Oracle Fusion Middleware – and for the very healthy flow of orders to clients in the pipeline.”

Atos Origin is investing heavily in technology-oriented solutions; not just in financial terms, but also by forming a special Fusion Middleware project team of 10, originating in various divisions. Skills are built up with this team – not just by taking training courses, but also by creating an environment for demonstrations. A range of services is built up and marketing initiatives are worked out. Moreover, Atos Origin has devised a migration program and the Utility-Based Computing concept, together with Oracle Consulting.

Pieter Buijs, Chief Technology Officer, Atos Origin for Northern Europe area, concludes: “This award is recognition of our multi-disciplinary, innovative approach, with which our Consultancy, System Integration and Managed Operation divisions and partners have worked in close co-operation with each other. We are very pleased with the positive market response to our pro-active common approach with Oracle.”
