    Telecommunications for HSBC Private Bank Headquarter in Geneva. The Swiss Data Center

    a strong back-up and disaster recovery plans. These last should be tested at least once a year.
    The services to be provided are based on Service Level Agreements. The costs associated to
    running the operations are charged back to the different locations using the services. One of
    the main responsibilities is to prepare and manage the budget, Investment as well as
    Recurring costs. The challenge is to keep within the IT Operations budget. An other
    responsibility is to rationnalise the Operations by Consolidating the different Data Centres

    unit rates (cost items) by 10% per year, is the target linked to the job responsibility. We need
    to converge to a standard Unit Rate defined for all the HSBC main Data Centres. For
