Green Data at the heart of the 3rd digital revolution

Paris, 6th July 2015

Atos, an international leader in digital services, will set out during the tenth Global Conference how Green Data must be at the heart of the third digital revolution[1]. Atos is partnering with Planet Workshops for the sixth year running. This year’s theme for the event is: “All actors of rupture”. The Atos Group will participate as speakers in this event demonstrating how their digital solutions contribute to the required evolutions to shape a more sustainable society.

Gilles Grapinet, Senior Executive Vice President at Atos and Worldline CEO, said: “We are proud to be the official partner of the Global Conference which is in line with our strategy to involve our stakeholders around the world contributing to make a more sustainable society. This event is also an excellent opportunity to remind how digital innovation is a successful enabler to meet environmental and human challenges in a connected world. Our constant investment in technological and collaborative innovation ensures that Atos continues to be a leader in both digital services and corporate responsibility, providing the best expertise to support our clients in their digital journey.”

During this event, Atos and Worldline will demonstrate how “Green Data” is at the core of the third digital revolution. With 4.5 billion smartphones and 25 billion connected objects expected to be producing data by 2018, it will be essential that the data is hosted, managed and kept secure in a sustainable way. To support this new digital world which brings opportunities across all aspects of our life including medical research, urban traffic and pollution management, m-services in the city and agricultural production, Atos has developed the “Green Data” concept, which uses energy efficient, secure and intelligent datacenters.
