This contract with Atos will enable Airbus to leverage its information assets
and will facilitate collaboration between its 59,000 employees, its customers
and suppliers, worldwide
Paris, 30 September 2013. Atos, an international IT services company, announces
the signing of a new contract with Airbus. The aircraft manufacturer, whose
success lies in its capacity for innovation, has chosen Atos to develop,
maintain and transform almost all of its Enterprise Content Management
five-year contract will be implemented by Atos teams in
Toulouse, Hamburg, Madrid, Seville and Pune.
The design and manufacture of an aircraft involves several years of
collaboration between teams of people from a variety of companies, professions
and nationalities that create, research, share and manage document retention for
a significant volume of information. This kind of distribution of creative
processes requires perfect organisation and synchronisation of knowledge.
In order to reach a new level of efficiency for its business processes and IT
solutions, Airbus has decided to transform and standardise its Enterprise
Content Management applications in a federated system working around a
rationalised infrastructure. This convergence project will enable it to optimize
content value by encouraging sharing and collaboration and by reducing costs as
a result of simplified support and maintenance. Airbus has chosen Atos to carry
out this ambitious project.
Jean-Marie Simon, CEO Atos France says: "We are extremely proud to have been
chosen, from a number of competitors, as Airbus' global partner to transform the
management of its information assets. Atos, with its best-of-breed Enterprise
Content Management solutions, will enable the aircraft manufacturer to improve
its productivity and to accelerate innovation and growth while simultaneously
bringing down costs. With its proven experience in the aeronautics industry and
its track record in Enterprise Content Management, Atos will bring its capacity
to deploy an efficient industrial model and its vision of 'future Enterprise
Content Management' observing the regulatory constraints."
The contract between Airbus and Atos involves a very significant component of
the aircraft manufacturer's information system, which is core to a large number
of key internal and external business processes (customers and suppliers). The
management of business needs and issues, the consolidation of the requirements
of a wide range of users and the technical complexity associated with diverse
content management components, are the main challenges that Atos must confront.
