A new paradigm focusing on development and competitiveness
The Sopra Steria 2020 Project is launched to improve the Group’s performance in all areas and increase its added value. The acquisition of CIMPA in October 2015 makes it possible to intensify its presence in the PLM (Product Lifecycle Management)
market. After the acquisition of the publisher Cassiopae, finalised in January 2017, three new companies join Sopra Steria in 2017: Kentor, 2MoRO and Galitt.
In 2018, the Group acquires the German IT services company BLUECARAT to strengthen its positioning in Germany and to offer new growth opportunities to the local subsidiary, and Sword Apak to complete its Loans offer. In 2019, it makes two major breakthroughs
in the core banking market with the acquisition of SAB and its partnership with Sparda-Bank in Germany, enabling it to build a digital platform for seven German banks. In late 2019, Sopra Steria also strengthened its business and consolidated
its strategy by launching its new digital transformation consulting brand, Sopra Steria Next.
With the acquisition of Sodifrance in 2020, the Group becomes a leader in digital services for insurance and welfare protection. In the United Kingdom, Sopra Steria acquires cxpartners, strengthening its expertise in customer experience and user-centric
Lastly, Fidor Solutions, the software subsidiary of next-generation bank Fidor Bank specialising in digital banking solutions, joined the Group on 31 December 2020. With this acquisition, Sopra Banking Software has significantly accelerated the
pace of its development, in particular by augmenting user features as part of its Digital Banking Engagement Platform (DBEP).
In 2021, Sopra Steria was bolstered by the acquisition of French cybersecurity firm EVA Group. This acquisition is a key step toward positioning Sopra Steria as one of the top three players in the French cybersecurity market.
The Group also acquired two other companies in 2021: EGGS Design, which specialises in digital service design and has locations in Norway’s four biggest cities (Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger) as well as in Denmark (Copenhagen), and Labs,
a Norwegian user experience consulting firm.
Today, the Group ranks among the top 5 European digital transformation players, having earned a reputation for providing end-to-end solutions to address the core business needs of large companies and organisations, helping them remain competitive
