Atos recently signed a contract with McGraw-Hill to help separate the company into two independent companies, McGraw-Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education. The company operates in multiple sectors now, but the move will help it focus its operations to 30,000 end users in 40 locations around the world.
According to the IT contract, Atos will provide IT management consulting, as well as deliver service transition, operation and ongoing operational improvements. The move will affect McGraw-Hill's six service towers - data center, service desk, end user computing, network, product and solution engineering and cross functional services.
"The opportunity to support McGraw-Hill through the transition into two strong public companies is very exciting," said John Evers, CEO of Atos North America. "Our business has proven expertise in large-scale carve-outs and a consistent global delivery model that will support McGraw-Hill through their transition period. We are focused on delivering a high-quality service that will enable The McGraw-Hill Companies to meet its commitments and future aspirations."
