BEA Systems, Inc., a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, and Atos Origin, an international IT services company demonstrated their common vision of customers' major business challenges at the sixth BEA user conference BEA Convergence Day 2007 which took place on January 16, 2007 in Paris-La-Défense.
As a Gold Sponsor of BEA Convergence Day, and the major IT services provider of its Exhibition Hall, Atos Origin underlined the commitment of both companies to develop a robust long-term partnership on state-of-the-art technologies and demonstrated through various workshops their shared vision of SOA challenges and value-added services dedicated to various markets and industries (Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Portals, etc.)
"The business requirements of our joint clients have evolved: the objective is no longer to demonstrate the technological performances of our solutions but to prove our capacity to solve business challenges and to implement a real-world solution," commented Laurent Matringe Regional Vice President, France, BEA Systems. "Atos Origin provides the long standing business experience we need to implement the vision of our customers. Through its exclusive global expertise from business, integration to support services Atos Origin is a key partner of BEA on the European market."
"The new constraints around ROI, regulations, and competitive pressure compel our customers to focus on new types of requirements," added Martin Guillaume, Solution Division Managing Director, Atos Origin. "Service-Oriented Architectures provide the foundation for tomorrow's infrastructure challenges in order to assess and improve processes at the speed of business. We consider BEA as a leading vendor to provide future-proof solutions supported by a global vision among the most relevant on the market."
Atos Origin also participated in BEA Convergence Day through various keynote presentations and workshops demonstrating a strong partnership on SOA, Portals, telecommunications, and RFID.
For the Telco Industry, Atos Origin and BEA Systems introduced their common IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) solution based on BEA WebLogic Communications Platform. IMS provides an IP-based, converged, multimedia network architecture and environment with powerful service-enabling capabilities. These capabilities can help network operators create, deploy and deliver higher revenue-generating interactive, multimedia services. BEA and Atos Origin also help operators concretely measure the initial impact of their innovations and model their complete services offering.
"Faced with competitive pressure and a complete transformation imposed by network convergence, Telco operators have to manage increasingly complex product and service offerings (triple-, quadruple-play) at a time when time-to-market has never been more essential," added Martin Guillaume "Therefore, it is now crucial to demonstrate our expertise in the business requirements and environments of network operators to help them anticipate their future challenges."
Atos Origin is a key partner of BEA on next-generation portals improving user performance. BEA and Atos Origin share the same vision on the benefits, portals can bring to enterprise infrastructures and their global impact on daily business workflows.
