This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective provides a summary of the recent Atos 2016 Analyst & Advisor Global Conference held April 2016 in Boston. Atos is a global IT services company with headquarters in Bezons, France, and Munich, Germany. The company was formed in 2011 from the acquisition of Siemens IT Solutions and Services by Atos Origin (founded in 1988), a provider of IT consulting, outsourcing, and systems integration services. Today, the company has revenue of €11.6 billion and more than 100,000 employees located in 72 countries. The Manufacturing, Retail and Services vertical is the company's largest, representing 34% of revenue. Geographically, North America is Atos' largest global business unit, which made Boston a fitting venue for the event. The event itself was a two-day session of presentations and discussions held for a small group of targeted industry analysts and trusted advisors with the objective of sharing current events and strategy at Atos and taking the feedback and thoughts of the analysts and advisors about the company's offerings and strategic direction.
