"The winners will be those who restructure the way information flows in their business"

Bill Gates

My attraction for the analysis and the understanding of complex phenomena naturally led me to a university training around the trades of cartography sanctioned in 2001 by a master's degree with honors in geographic information system.

The period, between 2001 and 2012, of my professional career was marked by the implementation of data processing and the implementation of international standards for the management of geographic and technical data. The culmination of this period is to have been responsible for technical know-how and internal project design, technical watch and innovation processes for a subsidiary of the ENGIE group specializing in Asset Information Management.

During the second period of my career, between 2012 and 2019, I was able to put in the service of the organization transformation the previously acquired methods of analysis of business processes and data governance. This is how, for GRDF, I was able to design different digital transformation programs, firstly, through a business architecture approach, then, secondly, through a global enterprise architecture approach.

This increase in skills in the methods and techniques of enterprise architecture was correlated with a rise in skills in the energy trades since I was allowed to understand all of the processes (marketing, engineering, maintenance and operation, delivering and asset information management) of the various gas trades (storage, transport, distribution and production of renewable gas).

Due to global warming and the abandonment of fossil energies, players in this sector must transform themselves sustainably. My journey demonstrates my desire to globally and sustainably meet this challenge and joins my commitment as a Man to help change the world.

Accompanied by Denow and David, Laurence created a new open-plan organization based on sharing information at all levels.

The world is changing

Markets and customer demand are unpredictable. Competition is fierce. Enterprises have to adapt and evolve. These transformations cover all levels of the organization : strategy, organization and processes, technological developments.

The company: a complex system undergoing transformation

Corporate governance describes this complex system composed of procedures and regulatory texts intended to structure and supervise the way in which the company is managed and controlled.

However, each level of the company has standards and benchmarks that do not communicate very well with each other. An enterprise architecture approach is necessary to make them consistent and facilitate the transmission of information from one level to another of the company.

Enterprise architecture : translating the strategy into an effective change process

Enterprise architecture is an approach that translates the vision and strategy of a business into an effective change process.

It is about creating, communicating and improving the key requirements of the company, its principles and models which describe its future state to allow its evolution.

The scope of enterprise architecture includes people, processes, information and technology of the enterprise as well as their internal relationships with the environment external to the organization.

The agile enterprise as an imperative

  • More effective and efficient operational activities
  • More efficient and effective digital transformation and IT operations
  • Better return on existing investment, reduced risk for future investments
  • Faster, simpler and cheaper supply
