Siemens has strengthened its partnership with Atos after awarding the digital transformation specialist two contracts worth a total of €200mn.

In March, Business Chief reported that Siemens and Atos had grown and extended their collaboration around advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).

Now the pair are to work together on delivering app management systems for Siemens as part of its wider digital transformation programme, with the contracts stretching out for the next five years and beginning in the final quarter of 2018.

"Atos has been convincing, particularly with regard to our important selection criteria, including statements on employment conditions and locations, cost efficiency and prospects based on its market positioning. We look forward to working together with Atos on building a Collaborative Global IT business."
