This year again, and for the sixth consecutive year, Societe Generale is in the small circle of the most mature CAC 40 companies in terms of digital transformation. The 2019 eCAC40 Awards* recognised Societe Generale as 1st bank and 4th of the most advanced CAC 40 companies in terms of digital maturity. In addition, Societe Generale was awarded this year the “strategic continuity” Award for its digital transformation.

The eCAC40 Awards winners are selected by the editorial team of Les Échos Executives and Gilles Babinet, Digital Champion of France at the European Commission. The jury** members, recognised for their digital expertise, evaluated the level of digital maturity of CAC 40 companies on the basis of a questionnaire and precise criteria regarding digital culture, level of technology expertise, relations with the ecosystem, communication and security.

The jury particularly highlighted the consistency of Societe Generale digital transformation and innovation with the Strategic Continuity Award, and consolidated the Group’s position among the most advanced companies in their digital transformation for the past six years (ranking 4th in 2014, 4th in 2015, 3rd in 2016, 2nd in 2017, 1st in 2018 and 4th this year).

We want to be among the most innovative banks in Europe and the most innovative in France, to invent the bank of tomorrow by capitalizing on our technological lead. Technology, like innovation, is not an end but a means to create value for our customers, our employees and all our stakeholders. We want to invent new banking services combining the best of the digital technology and human expertise in a responsible manner to contribute to building the future”, says Frédéric Oudéa, Chief Executive Officer of Societe Generale Group.
