Atos was formed in 1997 as the result of a merger between two French IT services firms, Axime and Sligos, with a focus on infrastructure management services. It is headquartered in Bezons, a northwestern suburb of Paris, France.
Following the acquisition in 2011 of Siemens IT Solutions and Services (SIS), Atos became one of the top ten global IT services providers and the largest European IT service provider. Its Systems Integration unit was strengthened to ~ 22k employees with the addition of Siemens SIS.
In 2014, Atos merged its consulting, application management and system integration units into a single service line, Consulting & System Integration (C&SI).
On June 30, 2015, Atos completed its acquisition of the IT outsourcing business of Xerox Corp for $966m, with the transfer of 9.5k employees.
Xerox ITO, which had 2014 revenues of ~$1.5bn and an operating margin of 7.7%, now forms part of Atos' Managed Services unit. 93% of its revenues come from the U.S., which is now Atos’ largest single market.
