The "Move AXA to the Cloud" (Big Bet 3B) program is an ambitious global journey.

The objectives are to move our existing application landscape to a secure hybrid cloud infrastructure (more than 15 000 servers to be migrated from 2017 to 2020), as well as to standardize and de-duplicate existing infrastructure.

Within AXA Tech, IaaS Global Services is dedicated to operate (run) the private cloud, develop components to streamline platform and automate processes based on cloud technologies and agile methodology. Combining the spirit of a start-up with the organization of a large service company, present in the world, IaaS Global Services has to facilitate the adoption of disruptive technologies in the context of a test and learn approach.

IaaS Global Services is in charge of running the Private IaaS that is composed of 2 parts:
* "Global Buy" services: infrastructure and services provided by an external partner
* "Global Make" services: services built and run by Axa (IaaS Global Services)
IaaS Global Services will thus have to collaborate closely with our external partner / vendor to ensure the proper functioning of the overall Private IaaS solution.

IaaS Global Services will also have to ensure that the quality of the delivery towards clients in each region is meeting agreed SLA levels.


The Regional Service Delivery Manager is supervising the quality and performance of the Private IaaS delivery towards the client(s) in his region, and ensures that the Service Levels are achieved. He is the focal point for Private IaaS Service Level Management on a regional level within AXA Tech. He is working in close collaboration with the Global Service Delivery Manager who is accountable of the end-to-end delivery (from the vendor towards the client) in AXA.
