French term or phrase: gestion des operations
Hello! I'm doing a financial/data processing translation and "gestion des operations" comes up time and time again. I think maybe they are leaving out the word "financieres" - do you think they are or does "gestion des operations" stand alone? Bear.

operations management
Explanation:
Bear, it can stand alone. It's the equivalent of the English "operations management". It's not committed to "financieres". Operations is a big part of software companies that is responsible for orders, licenses, etc.

operations/operational management


Explanation:
If they're not putting it in, I don't see why you should. I realize that your text does seem to have some elisions in it, but I don't think that not including "financial" in your translation is going to steer the reader into some inappropriate territory.

If it can make you feel better, here is what I can find on just plain "gestion des opérations":

English:Corporate Management
Management Operations
operations management s CORRECT
operating management s CORR

French:Corporate Management
Management Operations
gestion d'exploitation s CORRECT,FEM
gestion opérationnelle s CORRECT,FEM
gestion des opérations s CORRECT,FEM
DEF - Gestion qui s'exerce directement sur les activités courantes de fonctionnement d'une organisation. s

operations management, as has been said


Explanation:
but its going to be really too committal to put in "financières" if this refers to data processing, since the "gestion" may be done by a machine or a software (they also call that management) and then that would really be, more properly, information or data operations management.
