Bull Direct:


November 2006

Making the transition to fast-forward mode
The Group’s recently announced results for Q3 2006 confirm that we have achieved the transformation we committed to make towards a more services-oriented business model, and a focus on high added-value products. Indeed, we recorded a growth rate of 20.8% in our revenues for services, and a 35% increase in orders (making an overall figure of 16.6%) while our products business – where we recently appointed a new Director – has suffered somewhat from strong pressure on prices.

Ensuring availability
As Information Systems become increasingly complex, customers need the quality of support Bull can provide

By Edgar Snoijnk, General Manager, Group Field Engineering and Customer Support
"Today Information Systems tend to be increasingly complex and increasingly heterogeneous – with systems, storage, networks, often from different suppliers, all integrated into a sophisticated infrastructure, most often performing mission-critical operations. This is why ensuring availability is the top priority of Bull’s customer support teams which are our key intimacy forces at customer sites. Such proximity is unique for the company’s customers." >>
