Opinion D `expert – personal Shelves and smartphones, conç customs for the large-public, call into question the rè gles of sé curité usual.

“This N `is more one tendency but a fact constatA©. There is habit to say that comes by the top, but C `is true also for the base. One should not forget qu `there is a new gA©nA©ration which has a work method completely diffA©rent. These young people salariA©s consume much D `information and D `a maniA¨re diffA©rente has” confirms Michel Juvin, RSSI of Lafarge.

This gA©nA©ration Y N `is however not the only factor explaining this A©volution of the uses. Data processing D `undertaken is since several annA©es dA©jA  in competition with one, more dynamic, because not subjected to my? my constraints.

the transport instantanA©e has thus for example, several annA©es more tA/t, forcA© the door of the company before the needs to which it rA©pond are not covered by solutions adaptA©es this time at the requirements, in particular in terms of sA©curitA©, the IT.

has “Bring your own device has”, factor of productivitA©… and D `insA©curitA©

S `adds to it also dA©veloppement mobile terminals (portable PC and tA©lA©phone), put this time has  provision of the salariA©s by the company and which have contribuA© has?? often has??

trades of data processing not savings by the rise of unemployment

Figures – In July, the chô magus of the data processing specialists set out again &worsen; the rise aprè S several months consé cutifs of fall. L’ uncertainty é conomic increased of the derniè LMBO weeks could directly affect the plans of recruitments of the é diteurs and of the software firms.

In June, the Minister for Labour had A©tA© taken of short face has  the rise of the number of applicants da?? employment. In did July, Xavier Bertrand take the initiative and prA©venu before my? me it publication of the rA©sultats that the figures would be dA©cevants.

small a manA? uvre thus to announce an increase of 1,3% of the number of applicants da?? does employment have?? malgrA© the rise of 25% of the administrative disbaring. In July, the sector of?? data processing and of the tA©lA©communications Na?? A©chappA© does not have  the tendency, my? me if the rate of chA/magus is there clearly infA©rior has  the national average.

+4,2% for the chA/die of catA©gorie has

According to of Dares (Direction of the Animation of Research, the Studies and the Statistics), the number of registered people has  PA/le Employment, drops some since dA©cembre 2010, sets out again has  the rise.

They A©taient 32. 700 (in the mA©tiers of?? IT) in dA©cembre 2010, but 29. 700 in June 2011. In July, Dares dA©nombre 30. 400 chA/die in catA©gories has, B and C. In only the catA©gorie has, Ca?? is-HAVe – to say the chA/die Na?? having exercA© no activitA© during the month, they are 24. 400. Ca?? is thus 1. 000 applicants recensA©s moreover between June and July.

a bad news thus for the data processing specialists in research da?? activitA©. However, diffA©rents allowed these last months da?? espA©rer a durable resumption of?? employment. Thus, the offers has  destination of the executives with the growth.

the prA©visions D `recruitings still crA©dibles?

With the deuxiA¨me quarter, 93% of the companies of the IT sector dA©claraient to have recrutA©. The prA©vision of?? Apec for the 3rd quarter is more or less A©quivalente. However, within SME?? optimism of a©taient recruiters less rigour.

In addition?? World A©conomy is always, as the multiple sudden starts of the derniA¨res weeks tA©moignent some. With the deuxiA¨me quarter, the growth franA§aise has A©tA© null. In consA©quence, the government re-examined and does not count any more but on 1,75% of growth of the GDP in 2011 and 2012.

the companies express little or not their needs

AprA¨s the remarks polA©mic da?? Asa Dotzler, estimating that?? company Na?? A©tait not a target for Firefox, Mozilla its?? A©tait known as prA? T With  to rA©flA©chir has  solutions for better taking into account the spA©cificitA©s professional users.

the foundation wants to explore: an work group rA©unissant professional of?? IT. ?? announces has A©tA© made on July 19 on the blog of Mozilla. Month last, Mike Shaver, vice-prA©sident of Mozilla in load of the technique, recognized that a©tait dialogue little dA©veloppA© between the foundation and the professionals.

in particular with the companies, let it hear. For better taking into does account the prA©occupations of the latter, Mozilla indeed have need for their returns, all in all da?? A©changer with these users.

could has It? tre?? occasion of crA©er this dialogue. This work group wants to be a place of discussion for the dA©veloppeurs, the data-processing personnel and the dA©veloppeurs of Firefox.
