Spearheading quantum computing in Europe

In recognition of its expertise in the emerging field of quantum computing, Atos has been selected to participate in two projects of the European Union’s €1bn 10-year research initiative, the Quantum Technologies Flagship.

The initiative aims to support the development of a competitive quantum industry in Europe, making the results of quantum research available as commercial applications and disruptive technologies.

Innovation ecosystem dedicated to clients

Client satisfaction is one of the strongest indicators that our innovations are creating value for customers. Atos takes a client-centric approach to innovation, which engages all our partners, along with a rich variety of external third parties from startups to universities and trade associations.

In London, in 2018, Atos unveiled its first artificial intelligence (AI) lab, developed as a result of our partnership with Google Cloud.

Digital eyes in the sky

Since June 2018, the scientific, research and corporate community worldwide has been able to access and combine satellite data in an unprecedented way. Its use and combination with information from multiple sources creates services that address some of society’s greatest challenges. Atos is the leader of a consortium that manages the new Earth Observation Platform, officially named Mundi Web Services, on behalf of the European Commission and the European Space Agency.

Partnering with the energy industry

Atos is working closely with Enel, one of the world’s leading energy companies, to prepare for a new era of digitally enabled services.

In Europe and in Latin America, Atos is providing critical support to Enel’s Infrastructure & Networks division as it upgrades its core processes mainly around Billing and Credit to support front office, back office and other services for energy traders, producers and consumers.

In 2018 Atos and Enel also both joined the Charter of Trust, a major global cybersecurity initiative to secure data and protect critical infrastructure in the energy sector and elsewhere.

Supercomputing in Africa

Atos is a key player in encouraging the rapid development of the digital economy in Africa.

Following our delivery in 2017 of our high performance computing infrastructure to create the National Digital Simulation Center for the Ivory Coast’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in 2018 Atos worked to establish the National Digital Simulation Center (CNCS) in Senegal, in partnership with the Ministry of Research and Innovation.

The computing infrastructure and the ability to engage in digital simulation will establish Senegal as a major player within this field in Africa. In addition to giving researchers access to immense capacities, it will lower the costs of computing and have only a minimal environmental footprint.
