Atos wins contract to migrate the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management SAP Core to public cloud
Amstelveen/The Hague, October 19, 2022
The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW) has awarded Atos with a contract for the housing, hosting, management, maintenance and public cloud migration of its SAP centric IT infrastructure, as part of the tender ‘housing, hosting, beheer en onderhoud van het Bedrijfsvoeringssysteem IenW’.
The initial term of the agreement – in which Atos will be responsible for supporting the SAP centric operations system for the purpose of financial processes, procurement and budget execution within the Ministry - is five years, with the possibility to extend the contract for a further five years.
With this new contract Atos will continue in its role as a primary SAP partner to the Ministry and for the transformation of its SAP system and requirements. In a two-phase approach enabled by Atos OneCloud, the Ministry’s SAP system will be migrated to Microsoft Azure public cloud and then business processes will be optimized to be moved to a Software-as-a-Service model. During the term of the contract, Atos aims to reduce its own carbon footprint over the lifecycle of the contract by 5 to 10 per cent annually.
In this second phase of the transformation, Atos will focus on the redesign of processes, change management and the implementation of BPI tooling.
Hillie Beentjes, Deputy Secretary General of IenW and Mirjam Werges, CIO of IenW explain: “With Atos, we look forward to an assured continued partnership with focus on a managed and secure transition to deliver an SAP system to strengthen our innovative capacity and deliver complete scalability in line with our changing capacity requirements, while driving efficiencies and, critically, providing absolute continuity of service throughout."
“In partnership, we are focused on delivering the next stage in the SAP transformation of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management”, says Peter ‘t Jong, Head of Atos Netherlands. “It is our responsibility to deliver seamless critical back-office operations, drawing on our deep SAP, public cloud and secure migration capabilities and the power of Atos OneCloud. This will enable the Ministry to continue to build powerful connections by road, rail, water and air in the Netherlands."
