Banking

Transforming financial market changes into opportunities

The banking sector is under unprecedented pressure to undertake profound changes in its economic models and return to growth.

Banks are faced with the demand for greater transparency in liquidity and risk management (Basel II, Basel III, IFRS9), with permanent regulatory reforms and with new, strict rules imposed by the European Commission regarding payments (Single European Payments Area - SEPA). They must also satisfy customers who are increasingly demanding and quick to change loyalties.

 

In this challenging landscape Sopra Steria offers a suite of business line services and the Sopra Banking Software software-package solutions as driving forces in the transformation of the banking sector.

 

These transformations are occurring in the following major lines of business:


  • Risk management
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Banking data protection
  • Improvement of customer experience
  • Performance optimisation
  • Search for new sources of revenue.


Prevailing economic constraints are also forcing banks to increase transaction volumes and reduce back-office costs, notably by introducing shared-speciality centres, as well as credit and payment factories. The Sopra Banking Software software-package solutions are a key element of this industrialisation.

IoT Line: a comprehensive and overarching offer

IoT Line is one of the most comprehensive and advanced offers that currently exists in terms of IoT project support. It combines three essential axes:

  1. Consulting, which covers areas like implementation of adapted business models, training and support during periods of change;
  2. Technology, which offers IoT expertise (embedded intelligence, sensors, connectivity, platforms) combined with all the other components of digital transformation which include mobility, the cloud, data management and cybersecurity;
  3. Roll-out, which develops know-how throughout the whole IoT value chain, from design to roll-out;

Regarding accomplishment and support of IoT projects, Sopra Steria already has major client references from projects which improve processes (cost reduction, improved security, improved maintenance, risk prevention and quality at work) for key industrial accounts.

The national ecosystem at the heart of the IoT approach 

Sopra Steria positions itself as an IoT integrator which ensures the perfect integration of each of a project's components: business model, technological bricks, orchestration of participants in partnership with the national ecosystem, etc. The latter include start-ups, technology suppliers, software publishers, research centres, schools, universities and regional Sopra Steria teams. IoT Line experts are based in two strategic centres in France; the IoT Center in Toulouse (design and prototyping of connected objects) and the IoT Factory in Angers (Roll-out) within the City of Connected Objects.
