Some organizations want to keep control over their information systems while also benefiting from the catalysts to improve productivity and service quality that outsourcing can bring. Bull offers a highly flexible approach which can combine everything from on-site technical support to outsourcing, by defining scenarios that involve on-site delivery and shared services.

On-site outsourcing: stay in control of your information systems, while benefitting from our professional expertise

Every organization embarks on outsourcing in its own way, with its own particular structural or technical constraints and strategic choices. So if the solutions which it is offered are highly modular and adaptable, that is a major benefit. For businesses which do not want to hand over primary responsibility for running their IT, insourcing is a highly appropriate solution. It allows them to maintain full control over their information systems while at the same time benefitting from Bull's processes and expertise when it comes to running their IT – either completely or partially – on a daily basis.

As a major outsourcing supplier, Bull can offer you a range of highly flexible and scalable solutions. Its approach is based on its professional, industrial-scale expertise in service delivery, its experience of implementing governance processes (particularly ITIL) and its constant vigilance when it comes to meeting IT security demands.

Bull works across all the main activities related to operating and administering information systems and the applications that run on them:

  • Consulting: information systems analysis, process definition and implementation, industrialization of production activities, quality assurance
  • Systems integration and operational engineering: production automation and security, originating production, qualifying applications, capacity planning, optimization, package implementation
  • Management and administration of systems, applications, databases and networks
  • IT security management
