In an environment as demanding as the one we face right now, every information system should effectively combine power, control, agility and security. As a European leader in mission-critical information systems, Bull is innovating, anticipating and making a commitment to its customers, as the projects featured in this latest edition of Bull Direct clearly illustrate.
Computer simulation is one of the most powerful technologies that are shaping our future. And this is one of our areas of excellence. Having joined the leading group of global players, we will soon be delivering our third Petaflops-scale supercomputer, this time in Japan, to join the other ten or so currently in the world. The supercomputer – which delivers 1.3 Petaflops of power, making it one of the most powerful in the world – is destined for the ITER program and will enable highly complex simulations of controlled nuclear fusion.
Security is the essential pre-requisite for trust in the digital society for States, businesses and individuals alike. As a European specialist in critical systems and digital security, Bull protects information, networks, transactions and people. Stéphane Salies shows how, in the face of the growing complexity and diversity of threats, Bull is well placed to deliver a precise response, adapted to your business activities and proportionate to the risks you incur.
Given the extraordinarily demanding nature of EUROCONTROL’s activities, the contract we recently won with them to support air traffic control and ensure aviation safety in European airspace is emblematic of Bull’s expertise and capacity to build and secure extremely critical digital systems.
And finally, commitment is an essential value among Bull’s teams which is greatly valued by its customers, as Gilles Lassarre and Hervé Le Bars of the French State Modernization Agency (the DGME) make clear, especially when it comes to the large-scale innovative applications that the Agency is developing – with our support – to make the lives of French citizens easier.
So you can see that Bull, which is 80 years old this year, is your trusted partner anywhere in the world, helping you and your teams to successfully achieve even your most ambitious projects.
Thank you again for your continued confidence in Bull.
