GREENFIELD

On two separate sites 10 km apart near Chartres (Eure-et-Loir), the Crédit Agricole Group is putting the final touches to one of Europe’s largest computing centres. Known as Greenfield, the aim of this project is to store every bit and byte of Group data in two enormous datacentres. The buildings occupy sites as big as 4 football pitches!

Inside, 10 computer suites and 5,000 servers will enable every Group company to conduct its branch banking, insurance, credit, savings and market trading business to the highest standards of reliability and security.

CA STORE

Drawing on its experience in mobile applications, Crédit Agricole decided to develop a new method for creating and distributing its applications with the CA store, which received the customer relations award for its technological innovation at the Fifth Annual “Palmes de la Relation Client” Awards.

The innovation of the CA Store lies in:

  • the development of a new avenue for customer relations based on co-creation
  • the extension of the banking data model to third party developers for the production of web and mobile applications for Crédit Agricole through a series of secure open-data services.
  • The digital cooperative, “Digiculteurs”, is a federation of French mobile development companies.

OUR KEY CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

    

Maîtrise d'ouvrage

Project Management specialists have a direct working relationship with the business line departments of each Group company. Project Managers analyse requests from senior management, identify the requirements to be met, draw up the corresponding specifications, and schedule the resulting projects. Once a project is underway, their task is to ensure that its organisational structure and working methods are fit for purpose. As projects approach completion, Project Management tests and validates all software developed, and monitors the resulting product in its operational phase.

Project Management works closely with Project Implementation and other disciplines to support development of the projects adopted.

Project Implementation

Project Implementation specialists work closely with their counterparts in Project Management and IT Production. Following the recommendations and indications provided by Project Management, their role is to adapt and develop Group software. Project Implementation specialists are responsible for the technical delivery of systems implemented in accordance with the specification and schedule prepared by Project Management.

They also ensure that these systems are fully integrated into the IT production environment.

IT Production

The main responsibility of IT Production specialists is integrating software developed by Project Implementation into the Group IT Production environment. They ensure process functionality, security and data integrity under real-life operating conditions.

Lastly, IT Production is responsible for the normal functioning of all the hardware, infrastructures and environments under its management.

Infrastructure

Infrastructure specialists work closely with their counterparts in Project Management, Project Implementation and IT Production. Their tasks focus on the dimensioning of networks and machines. The Infrastructure function is responsible for identifying and implementing solutions that maintain the integrity and security of Group networks, machines and data.
