The agreement enables enterprises to create and operate a future state technology ecosystem that will support business growth, agility and sustainability.
Atos has vast experience in data centre consolidation, moves, virtualisation, optimisation and transformation projects, in more than 1,000 data centre projects over the last 10 years. ICTroom has delivered over 250 data centres and computer rooms across Benelux, Europe and other parts of the world. In the beginning the scope of the alliance agreement includes Benelux, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Central and Eastern Europe. More regions and countries will follow at a later stage.
Wim Los, senior vice president, technology transformation services at Atos, said, ‘Atos, a recognised leader in the DCO business now developing digital transformation services, has found in ICTroom a complementary Partner leading in the market of turnkey data centre construction solutions. We have complementary portfolios on data centre services in which ICTroom provides all facilities and Atos all IT related services. Our customers will benefit from our joined forces with added services that enhance implementation and reactivity time.’
Frank Brand, managing director at ICTroom, commented, ‘Strategic partnerships are no longer a “nice to have”. They are critical in building out competitive advantage in today’s more complex IT industry. The partnership of Atos and ICTroom delivers a full end-to-end scope of services in data centre design, construction and commissioning and allows for a tangible relationship that is greater than the sum of its parts.’
