Technological challenges

After several years of crisis in a number of areas (financial crisis, sovereign debt, etc.), financial institutions have entered a phase of winning lost ground. Stress tests have demonstrated their ability to withstand a severe degradation of the economic environment, and numerous IT projects are now being conducted by leading French banks to increase operational efficiency, control risk and manage customer relations; this provides ALTEN with significant growth prospects.

Its organisation, strong positions in several European countries (France, Italy, Spain, Belgium) and high-performing nearshore/offshore platforms (Romania/India) provide the wherewithal to provide consulting services or carry out turnkey projects in the fields of Client Support, software development (.NET, J2EE, PHP), testing (TRA), application maintenance (TMA) and cross-functional Telecoms.
