Paris, 16 October 2018 – Sopra Steria has for many years been working on the beneficial impacts of new digital interactions on society, aiming to eliminate the boundaries between virtual worlds and the real world, and to transform its customers’ businesses. As a result, Sopra Steria is now an official Microsoft partner for mixed reality in Europe. Together they offer a new approach which makes it possible to enhance user environment customisation. Sopra Steria thereby confirms its leadership in the creation of new digital experiences.
Mixed reality in support of businesses’ digital transformation
Already recognised as a major player in the management of mixed reality-related projects, especially in sectors such as aerospace, transport, energy, industry and health, Sopra Steria joined Microsoft’s Mixed Reality Partner Program in early 2018. The group becomes one of the first large European integrators to join this program and at the same time reasserts its commitment to mixed reality.
“Today Sopra Steria can offer not only business and technology expertise, but also the more specific skills and techniques required in new digital landscapes, such as design, 3D industrial and artistic creation, and even serious gaming”, explains Yoann Yvon, head of mixed reality at Sopra Steria. “Thanks to Microsoft’s Mixed Reality Partner Program, we can go further still and create new interactions as we optimise processes or design new services for our customers and make mixed reality and 3D technologies accessible to firms that want to improve their productivity and working methods”, he adds.
“We’re delighted to welcome Sopra Steria, a long-standing Microsoft partner, to our “Mixed Reality Partner Program”. As a company it has demonstrated its great ability to develop mixed reality projects integrating technologies such as artificial intelligence, the cloud and IoT, and is consolidating its position as one of Microsoft's major integrators in Europe”, explains Florent Pelissier, HoloLens & Mixed Reality product manager at Microsoft France.
