The Avasant report notes Atos generates practice maturity by delivering horizontal and vertical offerings. Further, Atos’ leverage of its initiative Atos OneCloud enables the cloud migration of several public sector clients, and results in data security and protection for regional financial services firms.
The report highlights Atos as one of the few providers supplying distinctive decarbonization offerings.

To elevate customer experience, firms in the region are partnering with providers such as Atos to enable secure digital adoption. Atos has driven its clients’ digital transformation by leveraging its diverse capabilities across AI, cloud, and cybersecurity, its partnerships with prominent cloud players such as Google Cloud, AWS and Microsoft, and proprietary solutions such as Atos OneCloud,” said Amrita Keswani, Lead Analyst, Avasant.
Prompting Atos’ Innovator ranking by Avasant is its rigorous expansion in Canada. In early 2021, Atos acquired In Fidem, headquartered in Montreal, to boost cybersecurity services, and acquired Processia, headquartered in Laval, to reinforce its local and global capabilities in product lifecycle management. In December 2021, Atos acquired Toronto-based AppCentrica, a technology and management consulting company specializing in Cloud Application and Salesforce services.
