Hand-held globeMajor Projects: The Integration Challenge

The changing face of information systems architecture is enabling retail banks to make significant performance improvements, react faster to market demands and manage customer relationships more effectively.

For example:

  • In 1998 Société Générale appointed SchlumbergerSema as prime contractor, working in partnership with Compaq, for a strategic project to design and install a wide-area Intranet-based production infrastructure involving 2,000 branches and 23,000 users across France. The delivered solution has optimized the sharing of information at every level of the organization delivering benefits by reducing the cost of knowledge management over a widely disseminated business.
  • Banque Directe, France's leading direct bank, turned to SchlumbergerSema to implement its new IT architecture in very tight time scales, and to restructure its call center.
  • Delivery of a project to automate the monitoring and control of the lending portfolio at NatWest Bank
  • Implementation of Caja Madrid's new information system to support its insurance business
  • SchlumbergerSema delivered a global upgrade on the information system supporting two of Groupe Mederic's pension funds, creating an open client-server system.
  • GAN's health and general insurance production systems were re-implemented by SchlumbergerSema to enable the organization to update its range of insurance products more rapidly, delivering tangible business benefits in terms of cost saving, faster time to market for new products and consistent communication of product data to agencies.
