To be able to develop new digital solutions that continually improve the customer experience, Societe Generale’s French Retail Banking IT department has been advancing on a DevOps transformation journey and practicing Continuous Delivery, with a focus on delivering value to the business and customers with speed and efficiency through daily innovation. This transformation includes the acquisition of new powerful tools to drive IT modernization—including on the mainframe.
The Group chose Compuware Topaz. Beyond features, the IT department of Societe Generale appreciated the easy installation, setup and startup of Topaz, as well as Compuware’s superior customer support. When it came to proof of concept, Topaz was installed by the bank’s developers themselves within an hour and was operational from day one.
“In less than two years, more than 90% of our IT employees are now engaged in mainframe DevOps!” Gatien Dupré, Head of Societe Generale’s zDevOps IT initiative for French Retail Banking.
