Banque des Territoires sign alliance to offer the reference solution for trusted cloud services

Paris, October 26, 2022 - Docaposte (digital subsidiary of La Poste group, and project leader), Dassault Systèmes, Bouygues Telecom and Banque des Territoires have signed an alliance uniting their expertise and strengths at the core of a French industrial consortium in order to create NUMSPOT, a company1 dedicated to the development of a full offering of sovereign and trusted cloud services in Europe.

NUMSPOT primarily targets French economic and institutional organizations that currently lack solutions meeting their needs : the financial sector (banks, insurance), the health sector (hospitals), and the public sector (state and local authorities, operators).

Available in 2023 in France, NUMSPOT is targeting commercial development in the European marketplace with the ambition to become the benchmark in trusted cloud offerings.

NUMSPOT will provide a technologically and commercially competitive, reliable and secure solution that responds to needs for regulated hosting in accordance with SecNumCloud (certification from ANSSI, the French cyber-security agency), Health Data Hosting and the future European cybersecurity schema EUCS standards. For this, NUMSPOT will rely on the synergy of the technological expertise and investment capabilities of the four French consortium partners.

The company will offer services having the highest standards in the marketplace in terms of performance, scalabiliy, security, cost and environmental responsibility. It will rely on the sovereign cloud infrastructure of OUTSCALE from Dassault Systèmes, which benefits from SecNumCloud certification and guarantees the highest level of industrial reliability and security with data operations exclusively in France.

Beyond infrastructure services (IaaS), the aim of NUMSPOT is to offer a sovereign technological platform (PaaS) providing software solutions and services (SaaS), based on the trusted solutions of Docaposte in particular, which meet core business needs.

In addition to responding to three main challenges of cloud computing (data sovereignty, digital architecture security and data portability), NUMSPOT will represent a European pillar for building cloud standards by offering an open and sustainable approach guaranteeing customers long-term solution maintenance, balanced economic conditions and the reversibility of their commitment.

Lastly, NUMSPOT will develop a European ecosystem of reference, positioned at the highest global level, that incudes software companies, digital service companies and startups. NUMSPOT will work jointly with research laboratories, notably Inria, to accelerate French and European technological innovation.

Olivier Vallet, CEO, Docaposte :

Docaposte is leading this ambitious trusted cloud project based on the complementarity of four major French players. Docaposte will help drive the success of NUMSPOT through its precise understanding of the needs of the public and health sectors and its ability to support the transformation of organizations as well as its recognized expertise in trusted digital services.

Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes:

We are just at the beginning of the experiential transformation of society. In this context, the NUMSPOT alliance creates a decisive coupling between public and industrial organizations. It opens a new leadership that will benefit the transformation of local authorities, hospitals and administrations. This project responds to strong marketplace and citizen expectations. It’s made possible by our extensive technological expertise, thanks to the proven technological assets of OUTSCALE infrastructure and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes over the last 10 years. In a new geopolitical context, this alliance will bring together a sovereign ecosystem having the ambition to become a digital pillar for citizens in Europe.

Benoit Torloting, Managing Director, Bouygues Telecom :

Bouygues Telecom has reached a strategic milestone with NUMSPOT It’s the recognition of our large expertise in communication networks, and this announcement supports our strategy to become the telecom operator of reference that helps public and private organizations in their digital transformation.

Olivier Sichel, Director, Banque des Territoires :
