mAINTAINING CORE

COmpETENCIES

While the group relies on outside vendors for

products and services that are not central to its

businesses, it has chosen to retain control over

its core competencies. Production processes

remain highly integrated, thus limiting the use of

outsourcing.

In the IT field, where outsourcing is common

among players in the financial sector,

BNP Paribas has adopted an original position.

The Group has created a joint-venture with

IBM France to meet the Group’s IT processing

requirements. This strategic alliance meets the

need to retain control over technology while

reducing IT costs and preserving a leadingedge

centre of excellence.

The Group has optimised its system for specific

IT development and programming by pooling

a portion of its IT resources in Asia within

BNP Paribas India Solutions in Mombai.

Another centre for IT development, MEDIHA

Informatique, has been created in Morocco

which offers social and economic advantages:

geographical proximity, the absence of time differences

and a shared language.

In both cases, the Group chose to keep these

activities within its subsidiaries rather to externalise

them. The two entities are expected

to employ several hundred employees out of a

group-wide total of some 10,000 IT specialists.

This plan was implemented while still maintaining

a net creation of IT jobs in France.
