infrastructure and SAP Technical Application Management services, the agreement, with a term of at least three years, strengthens the existing relationship between the companies.

In this agreement flexible usage of resources are provided with which Atos Origin can support ThermPhos’ dynamic growth. With a good balance between on-site and remote service provision,
ThermPhos benefits from Atos Origin’s scale advantages and remote management concepts, and for some services execution from best shoring locations, in particular India. This also provides
optimal safeguards for local client knowledge. In order to ensure that Atos Origin’s service provision remains tailored to ThermPhos’ desires in the long term, clearly measurable parameters
have been included in the agreement.

remote specialists, is a guarantee for a good service level that is up to the standards and wishes of Thermphos.»

an optimal balance between its standardised service concepts and the custom work required to support our clients’ dynamism. I’m convinced that the solutions selected and Atos Origin’s
