Societe Generale’s Cloud First strategy enables the Group’s information systems to increase their agility, openness, resiliency and efficiency in order to offer clients a wider variety of services, faster. By launching its Hybrid Cloud-based infrastructure services platform, the Group speeds up to meet its target of migrating 80% of its eligible servers to Cloud (Public or Private) by 2020.
A Hybrid Cloud platform
Societe Generale’s infrastructure services platform integrates multiple Cloud providers (Private and Public Cloud). Public Cloud provides considerable opportunities for innovation and scaling. It is also working on a pre-defined specific environment to ensure compliant and secure use of the services made available by the main Cloud service providers.
New cloud strategy
Carlos Goncalves Head of Global Technology Services at Societe Generale Group
Three important elements of our Cloud system: security, billing and monitoring. The Cloud allow for better scalability, resilience and allows to broaden horizons, therefore to innovate and attract talents.
A centralised platform for all the Group’s business lines
60% of the Group’s infrastructure is currently in the Cloud (eligible servers). It was built and is managed using agile practices and offers rapid, self-service access to around ten infrastructure services.
In 2020, all the Group’s infrastructure services will be fully automated and accessible. The platform will provide a consolidated view of all Private and Public Cloud services, ensuring full control over monitoring, security, compliance and cost/financial management.
A new world is emerging, bringing with it challenges for all companies. At Société Générale, we are convinced that an entrepreneurial spirit is a powerful tool with which to reinvent ourselves.
With the goal of constantly improving the service it offers to its customers, while effectively anticipating changes in society and creating the ideal conditions for flexible growth of its ecosystem, Societe Generale is gearing its digital transformation towards enhanced performance combined with an evermore solid com-mitment to environmental and social issues.
