A large part of Capgemini’s strategy for business growth is the Business as Unusual programme – launched in October 2009 – that includes the rollout of five global service lines.
In CEO Paul Hermelin’s presentation of Capgemini’s results for the first quarter of 2010, he said, “Our five global service lines put us in an ideal position to get back on track and capitalise on the upturn anticipated for the second half of the year.” The five service lines are: Business Information Management, Application Lifecycle Services, Testing Services, Infrastructure Transformation Services and Smart Energy Services.
Capgemini recently opened a datacentre near London that it sees as a showcase for green design. Called Merlin, it will be one of the most energy efficient in the industry.
