The development of IS Management sourcing models answers three major requirements: optimising costs, coordinating digital transformation and respecting time to market.

To meet to these challenges, Gfi Informatique is committed to generating productivity gains on service provision, move to results-based sourcing models, standardising IT development processes and relocating some services to shared service centres in France, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Morocco and India. These actions will allow operational staff to focus on their jobs while improving the service for end users. The key: the quality of the partner is a measure of success.

An innovative and controlled industrial process

Our knowledge of economic performance and operational coordination is bolstered by a contractual and risk-based monitoring structure adapted to the customer's needs and the challenges of each of our projects. And our progress initiative, which was initiated at the launch and implemented throughout the transformation process, is reinforced by the exchange of best practice and supported by our knowledge of different market sectors. The goal is to boost our competitiveness while incorporating the specific characteristics of your markets.

Our catalogue detailing team units and service activities based models and industrial estimations allows us to address a wide range of issues and services from end to end.

How do we work? We apply tailored methods to specific industrial contexts backed up by distributed and agile service tools. Furthermore, the professionalism of our teams, our flexibility and the certification of our resources pool guarantee the highest level of expertise throughout the project. Finally, our ability to offer a partner approach for comprehensive outsourcing programmes assists in the transformation of the IS Management process as a whole.

Optimising our customers’ competitiveness

Gfi Informatique's industrial innovation is geared towards the market to guarantee our customers' competitiveness. This innovation is underpinned by know-how and dedicated structures:

  • A relocated industrial work branch covering every stage of the project, from scoping to commissioning, and organised into plants on Mainframe, NTIC, BI and integration, Testing, Infrastructure and outsourcing verticals.
  • Optimisation of service activities by automating some development work and tests: mapping, TPM support, language conversion, data migration and Extensive Testing through the staging of non-regression testing.
  • End-to-end handling of the software life cycle following a DevOps approach: Scrum or Kanban Agile methods, function point estimations, performance indicators, communities and a continuous integration platform.
  • Systematic monitoring of security and quality issues with a project security plan for the developments and infrastructures, ISO 27 001 certification, etc.
  • The opening of Site Plants and Mobile centres of expertise for Digital, Mobile and IoT projects.

Key figures

  • 750 000 working days on results-based contracts, up 12% in 2015
  • 2 500 projects managed across France every year
  • More than 150 third-party maintenance / third-party software testing activities underway and more than 100 successful transitions

The survey reveals that even if digital transformation is already under way and seen as fundamental to the upheavals caused by the health crisis, it is not yet a reality in all organisations. However, it is seen as a motivating perspective, a necessary adjustment, and a source of benefits for all stakeholders, including employees. While the health crisis is reshuffling the cards in many sectors, bringing to the fore those that have managed to get digitalised early and adapt fast, it is time for organisations to look at the opportunities and obstacles that this digital acceleration brings. For Inetum, it shows the urgency of harnessing digital flow to make it a real driver of the impact that organisations can have on the economy and on society.
