Report Overview:

In April 2014, Atos announced a major reorganization of its professional services activities; the reorganization puts its technology services (e.g. staff augmentation), consulting, and systems integration units (which are now called practices) under one umbrella: Consulting and Systems Integration (C&SI).

Who is this Report for:

NelsonHall's Software Testing Vendor Assessment for Atos is a comprehensive assessment of Atos' software testing offerings and capabilities designed for:

  • Sourcing managers monitoring the capabilities of existing suppliers of IT services and identifying vendor suitability for software testing services
  • Vendor marketing, sales and business managers looking to benchmark themselves against their peers
  • Financial analysts and investors specializing in the software testing sector.

Scope of this Report:

The report provides a comprehensive and objective analysis of Atos' software testing offerings, capabilities, and market and financial strength, including:

  • Analysis of the company's offerings and key service components
  • Revenue estimates
  • Identification of the company's strategy, emphasis and new developments
  • Analysis of the profile of the company's customer base including the company's targeting strategy and examples of current contracts
  • Analysis of the company's strengths, weaknesses and outlook.

Key Findings & Highlights:

The reorganization has several implications, including the creation of new sub-practices e.g. Atos Global Testing (AGT).

Since 2013 AGT has been going through a major change in its structure, service portfolio and delivery. Before its re-invention, the former testing and acceptance management unit was a virtual line across Atos units including SI, TS and managed services.

One of the early actions of AGT's new management was to create a physical practice and identify career testers across the firm; nowadays, the practice has a headcount of ~5.2k (all career testers). Taking into account personnel who perform testing as part of their activities and who are certified in testing (either through internal or external certification), Atos has a testing headcount of ~7.4k.
