Atos BOaaS leverages the advantages of cloud-to-edge (edge) and cloud-to-edge (far-edge) architecture to extract commercially actionable data through AI. Solution deployment, piloting, and management are automated from start to finish.
Atos, a French digital services company founded in 1997, is an international leader in digital transformation with 111,000 employees and an annual turnover of around €11 billion. Europe’s number one in cloud, cyber security and supercomputers, the group provides integrated solutions to all sectors in 71 countries. As a leader in decarbonization services and products, Atos is committed to providing secure, carbon-free digital solutions to its customers.
On April 30, 2018, the Atos general meeting of shareholders adopted the raison d’être of Atos and made it into the company’s Articles of Association: “Contribution to Shaping the Information Space”. With its skills and services, Atos supports the development of knowledge, education and research in a multicultural approach and contributes to the development of scientific and technological excellence.

Dell Technologies, an American company created by Michael Dell in 1984 under the name PC’s Limited, headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, is a major player in the design and construction of computers but also provides information technology (IT) solutions. It offers multi-cloud and big data solutions, which are based on a modern data center infrastructure.
Its data storage platform, Streaming Data Platform (SDP), allows companies to access a single solution for all of their data (streamed or not). This solution provides off-the-shelf functionality and supports high-speed data ingest using an open source, automatically scalable, streaming storage solution. The offering takes advantage of open source technologies such as Apache Flink, Spark, Pravega, and application connectors such as Boomi and Kafka to enable access to a wide range of features and engines. With a programming model that powers functionality across multiple engines, SDP helps reduce application development time and enables real-time business insights to be extracted as data is ingested. Which eliminates all operational and storage deficiencies.
Edge computing adds complexity to digital systems, and the Internet of Things generates large amounts of untapped valuable data. By bringing together the expertise of Atos and Dell, Atos BOaaS enables companies to quickly achieve tangible and repeatable business results from IoT analytics and data flow. The solution also enables management of the IoT ecosystem from a single dashboard.
Atos BOaaS introduces Dell’s streaming data platform, one of the most innovative cutting edge AI applications pipe lines Reliable, fast, and secure data from the edge to the cloud, enabling data analytics. Atos combines all technology components into complementary services, in an on-demand consumption model, allowing customers to focus on the operational benefits of data analytics, both at the edge and in the cloud.
Atos BOaaS revolutionizes digital operations by freeing companies from on-site technical support, reducing carbon emissions, and saving hundreds of tons of CO2 per customer2 annually.
The annual economic and environmental impact of Atos BOaaS can be calculated as follows: on 1,000 retail businesses, the solution saves 66,000 hours in maintenance, compliance, and updates; and up to +1% to 2% in sales volume, which equates to $4.2 million in savings in digital media.
