the diteurs of software want a revival by linnovation

Opinion D `expert – Tax incentives, volution of Crdit D `impt Research, cration dun small business act leuropenne, exonration for the mcnat in favour of Free April, Afdel and Syntec Informatique put forward measures for the crisis and laprs-crisis.

26 billion D `euros the conomy franaise but not a penny for the sector the software. One conoit that the diteurs S `estimate tre the great lapses of memory of the revival program. Had but shot down; they thus began again counts the mthode to them which proved reliable in the systme conomic hexagonal D `others: to challenge the policies, and in particular the secrtariat numric conomy, so that of the intgration D `a shutter is dcid numric. If waitings of the sector of the software are varied and relate as well to indirect direct aids qu `(crdit D `impt in favour of SME on their purchases of software for example), there exists well a base common to the claims: to support the innovation.
# can the software contribute the revival? And this title, does owe tre rcipiendaire of spcific measurements? Yes, the reprsentatives organizations of the sector rpondent. « Any type of support in the field of the numrique one will contribute in hard the amlioration of the performance of the companies and thus the conomy. Btir a systme D `information aims above all accrotre this performance, and thus crer of the value, in particular by the innovation » insist Vincent de Poret, defect prsident made diteurs of – and galement director of the financires applications of.
# « The Thirty Glorious ones have T permitted by the technical progrs and the innovation, gnrateurs of profits of productivit. Numric conomy reprsente this to rservoir D `innovation. It is necessary to support dveloppement the numrique one so that public sectors as privs is better quips and gains in performance » exhorts the dlgu gnral of, Loc Rivire.

Crdit D `impt Recherche which does not relate only to R& D

is him also recipient of the dbat around the revival. « A revival program must allow, certainly to save the companies in difficults, but also D `to pre-empt the future and to support the innovation. The free software is a vector D `innovation for data processing grce two levers which are the mutualisation of knowledge and the free one of the licences, two big factors in times of crisis » argue the viceone of, Tangui Morlier.
# to support the innovation (in bond in particular with the dveloppement durable one) and the sector of the software, the diteurs dfendent several measurements, of which largissement of the plate of the CIR, it.

and the origin of the intrusions which allowed pirates to fly of give
relating to the design and the lectronic systmes of the future F-35 hunter.

Wall Street Journal holds its sources of governmental leaders who
have prcis that pirates N `however could accder with give more
sensitive on the apparatus, those so much store on computers not

the cybers spies have seems it exploit of the faults

Cloud Computing: too much expensive for the large accounts?

Opinion D `expert – basing itself on the tariffs of the services D `Amazon, the cabinet amricain ensures quadopter Cloud Computing results in a doubling of the cots for the large accounts. McKinsey recommends to the DSI of privilgier the virtualisation.

Cloud Computing east have prsent for several months years the catalogues D `a trs great number of salesmen of IT solution. Fight against the complexit of the systmes D `information and rduction of the cots is two of the arguments avancs to encourage the companies to adopt this modle dlivrance of services IT.

But Cloud Computing rhyme it rellement with conomies? The cabinet McKinsey & Company rpond « not » with through D `a tude entitles « Clearing the Air one Cloud Computing » . For McKinsey, to migrate D `a datacenter towards a service Cloud externalis (and thus to make to call a person receiving benefits) would result in the doubling of the cots for the great infrastructures.

366 dollars for Amazon against 150 for a datacenter internalis

For tayer its dmonstration, the cabinet S `is appuy on the tariff scales of the services of. Thus, the total cot of the functions D `a center of give cost 366 dollars per month and by links calculation (« links computing output &amp off; #187;) with Amazon, against 150 dollars when these oprations are internalises.

Of Mrs., in matire of Capex (dpenses D `quipements), to choose Cloud Computing S `avre not ncessairement the conomique solution D `aprs McKinsey. Possder its clean matriel is conomiquement more intressant that the hiring because of the tax dductions for dprciation.

McKinsey tempre the conclusions of sound tude while dclarant that Cloud Computing can on the other hand tre bnfic for the small and medium-size companies, C `is–to say those whose figure D `businesses is infrior 500 million dollars.

And if « data processing in the cloud » N `is the current hour viable step for the large accounts, C `is in particular because the people receiving benefits are not measures D `of them to bring a sufficient rate of disponibilit (99,99%) and practise prices too levs. McKinsey estimates that these prices must drop by 144% so that Cloud Computing is relle a opportunit.

the conomic virtualisation like vritable opportunit

the cabinet amricain thus recommends to the companies to keep cder a fashion to concentrate on technologies which proved reliable, and in particular. According to McKinsey, average rate D `use of the waiters in a center of give is of 10%.

This rate in so much port 35%, grce the virtualisation (several virtual waiters on physical Mrs. waiter), would result in important conomies for the companies with an operating burnup (cot total of possession) for the infrastructure waiters into fall of more than 50%.

IBM does not share the position of McKinsey on Cloud Computing, as brings it back. For Big Blue, the tude comprises a skew: it takes as postulate a large account externalisant the whole of sound datacenter. A not very probable case according to IBM for which the approach of the companies consists more of one combination of cloud public and privs, conomiquement more intressante.
