Context

In the wake of the data and AI revolution, the demand for digital professionals has surged exponentially. As businesses increasingly rely on data-driven insights and artificial intelligence technologies to gain a competitive edge, the need for AtkinsRéalis to provide skilled professionals adept in digital technologies across the globe is paramount.

Recognizing the abundance of talent in India, we are strategically shifting our focus to tap into this valuable resource pool. Embracing this shift will allow us to stay ahead in the ever-evolving digital landscape while fostering cross-cultural collaboration and diversity within our teams.

Our clients are awash with data, but often struggle to realize the business value from it. Our Technology Solutions teams work collaboratively with our clients to develop innovative technology solutions to their complex problems. We support clients across many industry sectors, and see our Indian talent being integral to delivery for our Energy, Water and Transport clients in particular.

We’re vendor-agnostic, meaning we’re not tied to any platform or software. We enable our clients to find and integrate the most cost-effective solution for their unique needs. User buy-in is key, which we achieve through embedding modern user-centric design methods at the heart of what we do.

The Technology Solutions service is part of our Digital practice. It sits alongside two other services: Data Intelligence and Enabling Services. Data Intelligence helps our clients set data strategy and governance, architect and manage their data and generate insight from it through artificial intelligence and powerful visualizations. Enabling Services encompasses our digital internally managed services that support our wider business.
