Best Wishes

Dear all, again a new year with the Clouds. Yes, you could say, but not only. The Digital disruption is on the go and it gives us a great opportunity and a great journey. After this year, then, we will find 2015, a key one, from my perpective! Three thoughts I wanted to share : The first, I know I could be too optimistic, it is a better shape of the economy for next year. Hopefully it could benefit to every one. We can see some green lights… Second, the vicious cycle of non investment ended in 2014 🙂 Yes, all projects will have to move on new solutions. Could it be a Cloudy one? 2008, 2009, 2010 first hard phase, 2011, 2012, 2013, could not be long and we have hoped for 2014… it will be for 2015! Entreprises need to shape their next business opportunities and Digital is part of it! Last point, and not least, Digital, Cloud, Big Data, Analytics and next innovation level need you! Yes, YOU. Would you be part of the 21st century challenges? Think of it, it could be a good resolution for new year!   I wish you all the best for you and your...

Here are some websites of charities to enable a gesture of solidarity. – la croix rouge / Red cross, – la fondation de France, – le secours populaire, – save the children. Thank you for your...

What is your color ?

What is your color ?

Hello, One day, I was in India. A person close to me ask for a question : “What is your color ?” I was surprise by a such question. For the first answser I imagine skin color first ? I asked for clarification. “You know, your color is what are your styles, passions, your values !” “If you want, Let’s just answer if you were ?” It took me few seconds and I said. If I was a color : Green, If I was a music style : Jazz, If I was a sport : Road cycling, If I was a famous people : Charles Chaplin ! “Sounds great ! ” He said. For starting, now you know my color, better, my colors ! In fact, I’m having a special one about Cloud Computing, a topic I’m working on. In this blog, I want to share with you questions, issues, not only, also some answers I hope (smile). Starting with a weekly post, very pleased to start !
