Innovation Manager for Large East Area | France

After 5 years as a project manager for French press websites, I joined Sogeti in 2016, first as local Innovation projet manager in Strasbourg and, since 2017, as Innovation Manager for the large East Area of France. My projects are mainly internals projects that we use as training field for our consultants when they are not on assignment and as a demonstrators for our clients. With the partnering of the 4 business units, I created a large Innovation plateform, which is now able to cover multiple technologies and subjects. We currently run 5 projects using Microsoft Technology (Azure, HoloLens, .NET), IBM (BlueMix, Watson), Java and Python. Approximately 40 to 45 people are simultaneously working in my project and in 2017 more than 150 consultants were involved. Our project includes AR (HTC Vive & HoloLens), IA (Chat bot with Watson, Image Recognition with Clarifai), Hologram manipulation with a Leapmotion.
