Atos kicks off Expert Community Convention with over 300 attendees and partners from across the globe

Paris, September 19, 2018

The Atos Expert Community, launched in 2017, is a network of over 2,100 Atos thought leaders from across all sectors of the business from infrastructure and quantum to digital workplace. The experts help steer Atos’ business strategy and build its technology roadmap and also contribute to the development of key innovating technologies, such as Quantum computing, cybersecurity and Blockchain.

Today the community meets in Madrid for its annual Atos Expert Convention, together with some global partners, including Google Cloud, Intel, Cisco, Hitachi Vantara, Oracle, DellEMC, VMWare, RedHat and Gigamon. Three new partners will be joining this year, these are start-ups - The Blueprism, IDQuantique & RegData. The event is an opportunity for the community to road-map future activity, share progress and best practice, increase knowledge on future technology as shared by the partners, and reinforce their networks.

In just 2 years, the Expert Community has significantly expanded and today it brings together 2,140 experts from almost all geographies - 300 of which are gathering from today to Friday in Madrid.

With the aid of a 250+ million euro investment in Research & Development last year, Atos is looking at further developing its scientific and technical expertise, as well as enriching its technical culture through expertise sharing and dissemination across the organization.

The Community continues its dynamic development by recognizing and valuing the technical skills of its members:

“Expertise is a key driver of success, performance and differentiation in our market. By providing our experts with a supportive and stimulating environment, we encourage innovation, improve R&D capabilities, and spread expertise-related know-how” explains Philippe Vannier, Atos Group Advisor for Technology.
