Companies Ink Go-to-Market Agreement After Successful Production Engagements at Top Global Brands

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and PARIS, FRANCE--(Jul 31, 2014) -  Atos, an international information technology services company, and Typesafe, the San Francisco-based provider of the world's leading Reactive platform and the company behind the Play Framework, Akka, and Scala, today announced a strategic partnership that will align sales, marketing and delivery strategy between the two companies. Atos -- one of Europe's largest systems integrators, with more than 84,000 employees -- will be named a Strategic Global System Integrator for large-scale applications built on the Typesafe platform. Through its partnership with one of Europe's largest and most respected systems integrators, Typesafe will increase its global reach.

Typesafe's Reactive Platform addresses the specific requirements of scaling modern applications across distributed architectures, and the need for the following characteristics:

  • Event-Driven: Enable parallel, asynchronous processing of messages or events with ease.
  • Scalable: Can scale elastically across nodes, and into the cloud, to provide compute power on demand.
  • Resilient: The ability to recover and repair automatically in order to provide seamless business continuity.
  • Responsive: Rich, engaging user interfaces that provide instant feedback based on user interactions and other stimuli.

"Just like the U.S., Europe is rethinking application infrastructure to support modern application scale requirements across distributed computing environments," said Francois Stieger, VP of EMEA Field Operations at Typesafe. "Atos is one of Europe's top systems integrators and has already experienced great success with the Typesafe Reactive Platform in modernizing production environments at major brands, and we're excited to engage the EMEA market with such a solid partner."

"During the past 2 years, several projects delivered by Atos have proven that the Typesafe Reactive Platform facilitates highly robust, scalable and efficient applications which help our clients to successfully address the business challenges of today and tomorrow," said Francis Meston, Executive Vice President, Global Consulting and System Integration at Atos. "Customers can now rely on the combined strength of both organizations to accelerate their transformation towards the digital business."
