Atos said it will use its expertise to deploy an efficient industrial model that “respects” the constraints of Safran’s core businesses
Aerospace industry technology group Safran has selected IT services company Atos to support it in the transformation of its IT infrastructure.
The contract to optimise Safran’s data centres across the globe will run until 2021 with an option of extending it by a further two years.
“By getting Atos to optimise our data centres, we are transforming our IT foundations in order to be able to offer our various core businesses a range of flexible and secure services,” said Loïc Bournon, chief information officer, Safran. “We expect to see some technological breakthroughs with these innovative digital solutions.”
Atos will deploy a flexible hybrid cloud orchestration service, as well as standardised process management to harmonise Safran’s management of all traditional infrastructures across public and private clouds.
In Europe, Atos will work with its operational centres based in France, as well as in Romania and Poland, to provide a cloud platform with Atos’ Canopy Digital Private Cloud. Services in the US will be provided at a local level.
The security solution will transform Safran’s current standard model into a data-centric model that interfaces with the assets in place at Safran, reinforcing them and controlling all access, said Atos. Surveillance will focus on data flow, taking into account each country’s specific regulatory requirements.
“With this contract, we are aiming to rapidly transform our entire information system over the cloud,” added Thierry Milhé, VP international production of IT services, Safran.
“The collaboration between the Safran and Atos teams will help us spring into this new era.”
Atos provides cloud services, infrastructure and data management, business and platform solutions, as well as transactional services through Worldline, a payment services provider.
