Transforming the IT environment in order to provide Linedata customers with a scalable business model and with services more efficient, secure and responsive
Working closely with Canopy, its Cloud subsidiary, Atos, an international leader in digital services, has signed a new 5 year contract with Linedata, a global solutions provider dedicated to the Investment Management and the Credit community. Linedata is to continue working with Atos, which has been one of its main IT partners for more than 10 years, by entrusting it with its transformation trajectory and the virtualization of its new SaaS (Software as a Service) package based on the Linedata Chorus solution, an integrated, modular and international software package which meets the requirements of the asset management industry as a whole.
Thanks to the Chorus Asset Management virtualized environment, Linedata customers (Institutional, Collective and Alternative funds) will be able to enjoy new more efficient, secure and more responsive services.
"We chose Atos, because it is recognized by the market as a standard setter in major transformation and outsourcing projects*, and for its expertise in Cloud Computing and Virtualization, as well as for its ability to assist in our international development, thanks to its global reach. Atos provides quality services on-time and on-budget. We intend to continue with this partnership in which Atos will play the vital role of developing even further our information systems which are one of the key ways for us to remain competitive in the market place. We have built up a relationship based on trust which is conducive to the expansion of our business and to the success of the services that we provide to our customers, with whom Atos is known for its professionalism," says Thierry Soret, Linedata Managing Director Southern Europe for asset management, savings and insurance.
"Along with EMC/VMware and Dell, Atos has provided assistance to Linedata since the design phase of the transformation project. We appreciate having been given this opportunity to provide our expertise in managed services and virtualization to Linedata as part of our continued business and technology partnership. Atos has demonstrated its ability to implement the Cloud dedicated to the Chorus application, by capitalising on the expertise and comprehensive solutions portfolio provided by Canopy, the Atos Cloud, as well as the quality of its partner network. The new solution fosters IT reactivity whilst reducing operating and energy costs", adds Laurent Barbet, SVP Head of Managed Services Atos France.
