Je comprends de moins en moins les informaticiens pessimistes : nous vivons
une époque formidable et tout reste à faire pour améliorer les usages de
l’informatique dans les entreprises.
Nous sommes à mi-parcours d’une révolution que j’ai appelée la R2I, la
Révolution Industrielle Informatique. Dès 2012, j’avais écrit une série
de six billets sur le sujet.
Il faudra deux septennats pour que cette R2I arrive à son terme, et ils
seront très différents.
Dans cette première partie, je ferai le point sur de ce qui c’est passé
entre 2007 et 2014. Pendant ce septennat, tous les composants essentiels
d’une informatique moderne sont nés et ont atteint un niveau de maturité
Dans la deuxième partie, j’anticiperai ce qui pourrait se passer entre
2014 et 2021.
2007 - 2014 : tous les composants de la R2I se mettent en place
Et si nous faisions un rapide retour en a... (more)

Mobile application uptake-it isn't only about iPhones. Sure Apple's App
Store now offers over 65,000 applications, and users have downloaded more
than 1.5 billion iPhone and iPod touch applications in the 1st year since
But while getting a late start, other mobile application storefronts are
trying to catch up. In the 3 months since launch, RIM's BlackBerry App
World has 2,000 applications ready for download. The Nokia Ovi Store is
leveraging (and paying 70% revenue share to) the large Symbian developer
community to create new applications for its user base. At the myTouch 3G
launch, Google announced that there are more than 5,000 applications in the
Android Marketplace. Recently joining the party is the LG Application Store,
initially targeting markets in Asia.
But if mobile application uptake continues to center on smartphone
application stores, how wi... (more)

iPad For Business
In case you did not hear, Apple announced the iTouch on steroids aka iPad
Apple iPad via www.apple.com
Is it a phone? No, its not an iPhone
Is it a PC? Well, not in the context of the traditional PC or Mac book
What is the iPad or more importantly, what is the possible business angle?
First as to what is it, it might be easier to describe what it is not.
As mentioned above, it is not an iPhone, granted you can get an iPad with 3G
or WiFi for data access (similar to how iTouch has WiFi). Likewise, the iPad
is not a PC in the context of running applications traditionally found on
Windows PCs or Mac devices.
What is it?
As far as what is the iPad, here is a link to its specifications, some of
which have resulted in confusion. For example, I have seen many comments
about how the iPad does not have a camera. Well, not built in however there

Most of Asia's operators are aggressively moving toward content provision as
