Atos Wins A Major IT Contract In The US With The McGraw-Hill Companies

NORWALK, Conn., July 27 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Atos, an international IT services company, announced today it has signed with McGraw-Hill, a leading global financial information and education company, a multi-year IT contract supporting the transition of McGraw-Hill from one, multi-sector company into two, independent companies, McGraw-Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education.
