Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, and Siemens, a global engineering leader, today announce the reinforcement of their strategic co-operation, with plans to accelerate their joint business through an ambitious joint go-to-market plan and the strengthening of their joint innovation and investment program.
The program has been increased by €100 million, totalling €330 million – more than three times the original sum. This will further support the Siemens and Atos IoT MindSphere-Codex strategic co-operation as well as the joint go-to-market.
The joint innovation and investment program aims to enhance Siemens and Atos’ digital strategy and develop joint capabilities in data analytics, artificial intelligence, advanced IoT & connectivity services, cyber security and digital service technologies to support the digital transformation of their customers through an end-to-end IoT suite.
Roland Busch, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Managing Board of Siemens and member of the Board of Atos said, “We will further combine the strength of both companies and leverage the joint investment program to further expand our approaches in topics like Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence. It is also important for us to have Atos as a key ecosystem partner for MindSphere which comprehensively supports our ambitions.”
“The strategic alliance between Atos and Siemens, which we decided to create in 2011, is unique in our industry. Through our digital collaboration, we are combining our industry and technology knowledge to support together the end-to-end the digital transformation of our customers. With our combined MindSphere – Codex IoT suite, I am convinced that our customers will benefit even more from our strategic alliance,” said Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO, Atos.
