VISION: “The Place to Be”
Atea’s vision was created by our own employees as well as with our partners. Our continued investment in our employees with every event building on The Place to Be, differentiates us from all others. Our vision unites us and gives us the energy needed to excel in our jobs while enjoying what we do.
Our vision reflects our main forums, which are;

• TechnoCamp, recurring technical training for our technicians and consultants.

One of Atea’s focus areas is Collaboration, the fastest growing area within the IT market today. We believe this fast emerging area will have a strong influence on both employees and individuals as the lines between personal and work environments are moving closer each day. Collaboration for most organizations means the sum of people, work processes, and technology, as well as the benefi ts realized as a result.
Atea delivers collaboration technology that supports our customers’ business priorities, thus enabling new business capabilities and more efficient business processes, through the introduction of new IT solutions.
We assist our customers in the process of developing state of the art collaboration solutions based on sound business cases. Furthermore, we assist our customers not only in building these solutions, but in the process of ensuring that the benefi ts from the business cases are realized accordingly.
