London, 26 July 2022 – Sopra Steria, a European Tech leader recognised for its consulting, digital services and software development, is joining forces with OVHcloud, a global player and the leading European cloud provider, to develop new open source tools. Sopra Steria and OVHcloud will participate in the drive to industrialise artificial intelligence (AI) and help step up the pace of companies’ transformation.
As demand for exploiting the value of data and AI reaches an all-time high across all business sectors and solutions are becoming available in all fields, scaling has become a priority. OVHcloud and Sopra Steria aim to industrialise the process of creating and implementing models using a Europe-based open source solution, and make these models widely available.
By combining OVHcloud’s AI offering with Sopra Steria’s AI-industrialisation capabilities, this partnership will enable companies to scale up AI rollout. It will provide a comprehensive solution, from orchestrating AI model training programmes to overseeing their secure, industrial-scale implementation via an MLOps (Machine Learning Operations) chain.
“Our partnership with OVHcloud will benefit from pooling our innovation know-how, enabling public and private stakeholders based in France and Europe to power ahead with their AI implementation. Alongside OVHcloud, we’ll be making our contribution to high-performance AI industrialisation that people can trust, so that verticals can leverage the value of their data”, commented Cyril Malargé, CEO of Sopra Steria.
“Creating a French and Europe-wide ecosystem to accelerate AI implementation and boost the open source community is a key step to reinforcing the tech-driven competitive edge of businesses and institutions throughout Europe. Our ability to harness our AI expertise on an international scale, underpinned by the excellence of Sopra Steria’s industrialisation capabilities, proves that Europe can produce state-of-the-art, high-performance, trust-generating solutions that will fan out across the world”, added Michel Paulin, CEO of OVHcloud.
