Why atos?

Cities need a single Urban Data Platform to deliver smart integrated services to their citizens, visitors and economic partners. A single Urban Data Platform provides security and data privacy rules on data capture, storage and access. It is the backbone of a truly data-driven city and the enabler of a robust data economy.

The Urban Data Platform approach means that end users — citizens — are served with information on a large range of topics; it is important to put citizens at the heart of service design.

Whether it is safety, mobility or utilities, effective public data management is based on trust. Trust must come from the design of the systems-of-systems approach, fully secured with respect to privacy. In creating use cases for smart cities, Atos follows a strict privacy by design approach and brings deep knowledge of creating a trusted Urban Data Platform.

As a global systems integrator, we have been ranked by analysts as a leader in many of the domains involved in creating a smart city. Working with cities around the world on the topics of trust and open standards, we were invited to be the first corporate member of the Open Agile Smart Cities Community.

Atos was ranked a leader in the 2020 IDC MarketScape for European Professional Services for Smart Cities vendor assessment. As a recognized leader in the cybersecurity industry, Atos helps cities embrace trusted Urban Data Platforms.

In its Enterprise Edge Compute Market Landscape, TBR recognized Atos for our unique value proposition in the edge computing market, with a services-centric positioning and foundational hardware offering.

On data access security, Atos provides a unique range of knowledge and solutions, including IDnomic for secure IoT and data access based on multi-factor authentication. The infrastructure components we developed for the growing IoT and data-driven services market come with multi-factor authentication security access.

Atos was ranked a leader in the June 2020 TBR Market Landscape for Quantum Computing. High performance computing is a foundational technology required for near real-time response systems in a smart city.

In a system-of-systems approach, it is important to have open standards for connection systems and devices. To achieve this goal, Atos is an active member of standardization committees, including as a platinum member and founding partner of the FIWARE Foundation — where we contribute to open source solutions for Urban Data Platforms.

Atos has a center of excellence that supports smart city engagements on a global scale. Our platform research and development is done by a central team at our Innovation Lab in Bordeaux. As a global player, our support for delivery and partner engagement around the world ensures that we maximize the benefits we pass on to our clients. Working with Atos will position any city in a global network of Atos customers.
