Context and Challenges

Sanofi ITS organization is going through a transformation towards Service organization to drive Business Value at lower cost. versus being a Technology centric organization.

Reasons behind this transformation are:

Since 2000 demand for new IT solutions is growing faster and faster (consumerization, IoT, Big data…); This increase of number of IT solutions is generating increasing operating costs (Run); With a defined and limited budget for Run + Build there is a need to manage ITS Services in a better way ; Managing ITS activities in Service mode helps to free Run cost and to deliver best value for our customers .

Desired outcomes of this internal transformation can be summarized in three building blocks:

Cost DownOptimize service deliveryEliminate non-value add activitiesAlign spending with value
  Usage Up: Market the value of servicesImprove services to provide more valueMeasure& Analyze consumption Satisfaction Up:Drive for business valueMeasure & Manage customer satisfactionBenchmark services
