Atos, an international leader in digital services and the number two European IT Services partner for the Financial Service industry announced its expansion into Myanmar at the Partnership agreement signing ceremony with Myanmar Millennium Group (MMG) in Yangon, Myanmar on 17 October 2015.
The agreement between Atos and MMG will facilitate the introduction and deployment of Atos Banking as a Service solution to accelerate future expansion of the banks and financial institutions and the services to support the anticipated growth in Myanmar.
Atos BaaS is a state-of-the-art banking platform that manages and supports the full spectrum of banking operations, from current and savings accounts, deposits, to credits, loans and collections.

The solution reflects industry best practices, guarantees compliance for current and future regulatory requirements and ensures complete security and confidentiality at all times.
Leveraging MMG’s local capabilities, Atos will offer banks in Myanmar a proven turnkey solution to supplement their core platforms that includes consulting and design services, applications transformation, rationalization and migration, testing and acceptance management, comprehensive security and access management services, smart mobility and contextual services and IT outsourcing, data management and applications management. These solutions are modular and standards-based, and therefore, they can be customized to fit the bank's specific growth needs as well as its existing infrastructure and application platforms without the need for upfront capital investment or the disruption of a costly re-engineering project. Through this collaboration, Atos and MMG aim to contribute to the modernization and long-term development of both the financial sector and the economy of Myanmar.
Min Zeyar, Founder & Chairman, MMG said, “This cooperation marks a new era for Banking in Myanmar.
