The Atos OneCloud initiative is a great example of the unique cloud transformation capabilities of Atos. We are delighted to be able to participate in Atos OneCloud as a strategic technology partner”.
Atos has a strong history of working together with AWS services in over fifty large customer environments worldwide. Atos and AWS worked closely together to successfully build a cloud-native SaaS solution on AWS Cloud for Miller Heiman, the global leader in sales training, consulting, research and technology solutions.
“Atos has been a trusted partner for many years and continually demonstrated their ability to bring the right, highly skilled and motivated people to the table. We worked closely together to successfully design, develop and support one of our most strategic platform offerings leveraging the scale and technologies provided by AWS cloud services,” said Byron Matthews, Miller Heiman Group.
