Atos is playing its IoT cards well
In Internet of Things (IoT), Atos (Nasdaq: ATOS) leverages several structural and practical advantages. The company’s acquisition of Siemens IT Solutions and Services in 2011 gives Atos a strong base in operations technology (OT), the driving force behind IoT and a challenge to most IT companies. Also, Atos’ engagement model for business transformation, including IoT, is well suited to the current state of IoT maturity among customers, vendors and within the IoT market.
The model facilitates customer choice among feasible, moderately sized projects that are completed, deployed and delivering positive ROI within a year, engendering a process of agile continual innovation that TBR believes serves most customers well. Each project generates further innovation and contributes to a growing body of business-relevant data from which additional value can be extracted through further analysis and integration, expanding Atos’ ongoing engagement with the customer. TBR believes this evolutionary approach to business transformation is a better and more common choice for most customers than a revolutionary business-model-changing approach to digital transformation.
