Véronique Durand-Charlot, Director of Information Systems, ENGIE

“The IS function may not be able to deliver the digital transformation of the entire company singlehanded, but it is nevertheless an essential contributor. Working alongside all our Business Lines, the Director of Digital Division, and the Innovation, Marketing and New Business Department, it is making a direct contribution to the digital future of the Group.”

Marc Florette, Director of Digital Division, GDF SUEZ

“For ENGIE, it’s about seizing every opportunity offered by digital technology to accelerate the transformation of its business lines and extend their value chains. The online world and mobile apps are revolutionizing the customer relationship both operationally and commercially by introducing completely new ways of winning customers, selling to them and securing their loyalty. From the industry perspective, smart systems and big data are opening up many powerful opportunities. Digital technologies also bring with them the promise of productivity gains, as we’ve already seen with the use of tablets by on-site technicians, augmented reality for maintenance operations, and 3D printing of gas turbine fan blades. Lastly, corporate social networks are bringing about a profound change in management practices and working methods through the development of sharing, collective intelligence and cross-disciplinary working.”

Erwan, IS Manager at Electrabel“IS is not just a world of machines and technologies. We are working to ensure that raw data becomes invaluable information for users. I’m responsible for our information systems resources, so what’s my main job?  It’s actually to change the behavior of our employees to reduce our overall environmental impact.”

Audrey, Salesforce Project Leader at ENGIE

“I work on Salesforce, the SaaS solution offered to our in-house clients around the Group. One of our key advantages is that we are relatively close to the individual business lines. We understand what they do and the processes they use, which means that we can offer them solutions which are IS solutions and business solutions at the same time.”

Julien, Project Manager, EMT ISD – Energy Europe Business Line

“I was one of the first to attend the IS Project Academy, the in-service training program set up by the ENGIE ISD and the Group’s University. The Academy has totally changed my view of IS project management. The main focus of the program was the ‘soft skills’ needed to lead a project and control its risks, whilst its structure involved a great deal of interaction and sharing between participants at every stage. It was also an amazing opportunity to expand my personal network!”
