Sogeti was named winner of a 2014 IBM Beacon Award for Smarter Computing in the IBM SmartCloud Cloud Builder category. This honor is awarded each year to a select number of IBM Business Partners to recognize information technology excellence, commitment to skills attainment, industry knowledge and innovative solutions based on IBM technology and services.
Sogeti is proud to accept this tenth Beacon Award for our work around IBM PureSystems and IBM SmartCloud software, said Christophe Bonnard, General Manager, Sogeti France. Our footprint in the cloud computing area is what has made Sogeti such a valuable resource to both IBM and our clients. We strongly believe that organizations can dramatically improve their business agility, whilst containing or reducing costs, thanks to Cloud computing. Sogeti is no exception to this rule; this is why we are using these IBM technologies for our own Client Delivery Center in Europe.
