Atos has announced that it has been identified as a ‘Leader’ by global research and advisory firm NelsonHall in its latest Vendor Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) for Big Data & Analytics Services.
According to the report, Atos has a comprehensive offering (including consulting and system integration services, platforms, reference architectures, and a well-developed set of industry solutions). The report cites Atos’ strengths, including scale, CEO-sponsored strategic initiatives across all Atos’ units, and a high level of investment in its portfolio of offerings and IP.
The NelsonHall NEAT vendor evaluation study assesses 12 of the most significant service providers that deliver Big Data & Analytics services against their ‘ability to deliver immediate benefit’ and their ‘ability to meet future requirements’. Atos was positioned as a Leader in both capacities for three categories: Operational Improvement Focus, New Business Model Focus, and Overall.
Commenting on the research, Dominique Raviart, IT Services Practice Director at NelsonHall, said: “Within IT services, the share of spending related to mature offerings will decrease which means vendors are now challenged to grow expertise in high growth offerings such as big data and analytics. With Atos Codex, Atos has invested in new technologies, addresses challenges such as fragmentation of software tools, and has created a large number of industry use cases. Atos is also investing in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to bring further automation in analytics, and NelsonHall views this investment as very positive.”
Elaborating on Atos’ role as a leader in Big Data & Analytics, Sean Narayanan, Executive Vice President for Business Platforms & Solutions at Atos said: “We are proud to be recognized as a Global Leader in Big Data & Analytics Services by NelsonHall. This ranking further validates our expertise and commitment to deliver data-driven business transformation to our customers as part of our Digital Transformation Factory strategy.”
