Data is now the real power source fuelling business. But to convert this abundant raw energy into concrete benefits – and respond to the priority issues of the Cloud, Big data and the Internet of Things – a whole chain of expertise needs to be brought into play. Understanding the quantity, diversity and sensitivity of the information that you’re dealing with; knowing how to choose and implement the best technology options; learning to identify and translate business challenges, while delivering all the necessary performance and security… being an integrated operator means mastering all these links in the chain: from data infrastructure to data management. And that’s Bull’s great strength.
Bull aims to become the trusted operator for enterprise data. To achieve this goal, the One Bull plan will harness all of the Group's resources to develop solutions and services that will enable businesses to capture the full value of the data they produce and use. The plan aims to double the Group's EBIT margin over the period to 7% of revenues by 2017, establishing it on a sustainable course for profitable growth.
Philippe Vannier, Chairman and CEO of Bull Group, commented: "Our goal for One Bull is to unleash the value of data. The ramp-up in cloud services, big data and the internet of things means that organisations need to refocus on how information is transforming their business. Bull boasts a unique combination of three areas of expertise - computing power, integration of complex architectures and security - that meets their needs. One Bull should enable customers to move away from conventional digital environments and focus instead on their core business."
