French banking group Societe Generale has launched a technology, dubbed The Dunes , to support its digital transformation.

The new hub in Val-de-Fontenay will be home to the bank’s 5000 employees, who will work mainly on infrastructure and applications for the bank’s businesses and central departments.

The Dunes will be a fully connected building, allowing employees a wide variety of spaces in which to work and experiment.

The facility will be used to develop synergies and generate innovation between the DATA, IT security and IT systems architecture teams and the departments that work with these tech teams, the French bank said.

Societe Generale head of resources and innovation Francoise Mercadal-Delasalles said: “The iterative design approach for The Dunes, a co-creation process centred on user experience, is symbolic of the Group’s digital transformation.

“This connected and innovative space is a fantastic laboratory for inventing an agile, collaborative and open working environment that will help the Group to enhance its performance for the benefit of its customers. It’s more than a major building project, it’s a strategic project.”
