Information technology: providing powerful leverage in government and business dynamics
No-one would argue that today information technology is at the heart of innovation and performance, when it comes to nation states and businesses alike. The President of France himself underlined this fact when he recently visited the French Atomic Energy Authority (the CEA), which operates Europe’s most powerful supercomputer – designed, manufactured and implemented by Bull.

Local authorities: Bull, architect of an open world and champion of best practices
By Jean-Pierre Barbéris,
General Manager of Bull’s Services and Solutions business

"Information systems performance is one of the main factors when it comes to the dynamism of local governments. Bolstered by this belief and its in-depth knowledge of local authorities’ issues and constraints, Bull has developed a range of tools and services dedicated to meeting the new challenges they face, including skills transfer, cost management and service quality monitoring." >>

Director Software Strategy and Chairman of the OSDL/DCL Steering Committee.
