Paris, France, June 18, 2019
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, has signed a 6-year contract with Damart, the international fashion and home-shopping retailer and brand of Damartex Group, to digitally transform its business by moving its infrastructure to the cloud. Damart will use a cloud solution combining Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Atos’ Digital Private Cloud platform.
Atos will fully manage the migration of Damart’s infrastructure, currently hosted in Damart’s local and Atos datacenters, to a mixed cloud solution, based on GCP public cloud platform and Atos’ Digital Private Cloud platform.
Atos’ expertise in end-to-end cloud orchestration and management will enable Damart to take advantage of Google Cloud’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities, so that it can run AI-powered workloads leveraging ML analytics for valuable business insight and enable them to develop new business opportunities.
This fully-managed cloud solution will provide Damart with a flexible, agile, scalable and secure infrastructure and bring the benefits of increased operational efficiency, fast application deployment, agility, cost optimization and faster time to market.
As a global Leader in Managed Security Services (MSS[i]) Atos brings its expertise in security and protection to ensure that Damart has all the access and control requirements that European and global regulations demand.
“We chose Atos as the trusted partner in our digital transformation journey because of its strong expertise and experience in cloud solution development and management. By moving to the cloud, and more specifically a hybrid cloud model, we will have the flexibility to support the fluctuations in our network consumption throughout the year. This will enable our business to become more agile, responsive and flexible to be able to accommodate the continuing shift in how customers shop, now and in the future.” said Thomas MASUREL, CIO, Damart.
“We’re delighted that Damart has chosen Atos as its partner in digital transformation. The benefits of adopting a hybrid cloud strategy go beyond reducing costs and increasing productivity and will enable Damart to remain competitive in today’s every-changing retail landscape.” said Wim Los, Senior Vice President, Enhanced Google Alliance, Atos.
