ABOUT THIS COMPANY:A brave new world
Created in 1969 by Jean Carterton, the Société d'Etude et de Réalisation en Informatique et Autonomisme (or Steria, as it is thankfully known today), started life as a software development and programming outfit providing advice to French companies embracing the scary and futuristic new wave of computer technology in the 1970s. Fast forward to over 40 years later and the firm is still helping out French companies; the only difference is that it is now one of Europe's largest providers of IT business services focussing on consulting—or "transformation services" as the company calls it—operational services, and industrial delivery—or outsourcing to you and me. The "transformational services" include process and IT transformation, application development, business intelligence, Oracle and SAP services.
Although the consultancy is French in origin and derives most of its revenue from its business dealings in Europe, it has made a happy home across the Channel; the United Kingdom is now the IT specialist's most important market, pulling in 43 per cent of annual revenue. Steria provides end-to-end services to clients like El Corte Ingles, Tesco, BT, Boots, Royal Mail and the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Industry, developing and then operating their information systems from beginning to end. The firm offers its services to a broad clientele involved in financial services, manufacturing, retail, transport, telecommunications and the media, health care, the public sector and utilities, through its 19,000 staff in 16 countries across Europe, North Africa, India and Asia Pacific.
