Africa, November 18, 2019
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, and LigaData, Silicon Valley big data specialist, are partnering to bring best-of-breed technology solutions to enterprises that are working through their digital transformation journey. The partnership will be worldwide, with a special focus on the Middle East and Africa regions, starting with eight countries in the first phase, then extending to over 30 countries in the region.
As part of this partnership, LigaData’s Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) product will integrate with the Atos Bridge services to enable monitoring and analysis of business-critical processes. Thanks to Atos Bridge, LigaData’s DaaS will monitor and analyze all the processes within a company real-time. This combination will create a powerful solution that transforms the nature of big data management for enterprises and maximizes real-time business process performance.
Regarding the cooperation, LigaData CEO, Bassel Ojjeh, said: “This partnership is exciting for us and our clients as it allows us to accelerate our technology roll-out, thus enabling our enterprise customers to extract real benefit from their digital transformation programs on a timescale of months rather than years. We believe the partnership creates a unique combination of our big data technology with Atos’ global footprint.”
Yannick Tabanon, Head of Middle East & Africa Sales at Atos, underlined the importance of this partnership as follows: “The Atos-LigaData global partnership will generate immediate benefits for all of our customers across industries. Since Atos and LigaData have already successfully delivered DaaS solutions in Africa, we will now expand abroad. We believe this fruitful collaboration will offer many opportunities for enterprises aiming efficient digital transformation.”
True insights for true transformation
With its DaaS solution, LigaData pulls in enterprise big data from a myriad of sources and utilizes its own decision-making engine and best-of-breed open source software to extract, process and deliver insights. Within this framework, the Atos Bridge solution enables real-time monitoring, measuring and management of all processes within an enterprise.
Collecting and analyzing availability data of an organization’s IT landscape and infrastructure, Bridge becomes a hub, managing daily operations successfully. It focuses on the health of critical business process chains, end-to-end, as well as service hot-spots and business peaks. In other words, it acts as a “bridge” between the application landscape and monitoring. Thus combining the power of big data with efficient analysis, Atos and LigaData will release the true value of vast amounts of data and drive digital transformation.
Atos has approximately 20 engineers trained specifically for this cooperation. These engineers work within an Atos Center of Expertise to make sure that the technology is rolled out six times faster than before, thus accelerating the benefits for their clients.
