Bernard Bourigeaud, CEO and chairman of the management board at Atos Origin
said: ‘Asia is a major focus for Atos Origin. Following the opening of a
state-of-the-art twin data centre in Hong Kong in October 2004, this latest
Asian addition to the global Atos Origin infrastructure shows the company’s
commitment to the region and can be seen as a step forward in the expansion
plans of Atos Origin in this part of the world.’

The firm said it would expand its Malaysian base to include a regional
business process outsourcing centre for fleet card management. It added that the
