Hello, my name is Yann. I'm a Mainframe Infrastructure expert at Societe Generale.
The Infrastructure expert ensures that the computer system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, both in hardware and software. In the event of an incident or a problem, we will ensure that the computer system can continue to operate by switching to backup sites for example. We ensure it doesn't have an impact on the bank, the clients or the bank advisors. The Infrastructure Expert also ensures the IT infrastructure evolution by including the latest technologies. For example, on our system, we have the mainframe service by using API REST, which allows to bring new technologies on this area.
We have a true impact on the bank, since we have to provide a high-quality, high-performance and innovative infrastructure. The goal is to ensure the employees' activity and deliver an efficient service to our clients.
As far as I am concerned, web search engine is a crucial tool for a System Engineer. With this tool, you can find the answers to all our questions. Another must-have tool would be the coffee machine. It is a gathering point for colleagues where we can discuss the problems we faced during the day., It is also a formidable weapon for the regular night work we do for specific interventions.
At Societe Generale, we can join the Expertise Program, which aims to promote experts within the bank. These experts are being challenged to find solutions to complex problems and innovation issues.
As soon as I arrived, I discovered a true team spirit. It is an important value for me, that I find also in rugby, my favorite sport. Team spirit is everything at Societe Generale.
When there is a problem or an incident, we work as a group to face it and find a solution.
If I had to summarise this in a single motto, it would be: "we go faster alone, we go further together."
