BBVA launches global software division

BBVA has announced the launch of its new global software division which includes over 16,000 developers across the Group.

The bank said the new division will speed up delivery of digital solutions and make them more easily scalable across the countries where it operates.

The new unit, led by Francisco Leyva, will execute and coordinate the bank’s core technological transformation programmes at a global level.

Leyva, who is global head of software development at BBVA, said: “So far, in the Engineering area we had made forward strides in creating multiple global functions (Infrastructure, Communications, Architecture) that lead and coordinate strategy execution with the local units. The growing importance of software development calls for that same level of globalisation to leverage the benefits of a global reach.”
