Part 2 : Digital and society: What are the issues?

How does society perceive digital technology?

As part of his research at the CEA, Etienne Klein has studied the way in which the general public, via the media and literary publications, views the challenges of digital technology.

At the same time, he interviewed a number of CEA researchers on the same themes. The comparison of the results shows that the apprehension of the subject sometimes reveals real divergences.

During this conference, the philosopher/physicist will share with us some of the conclusions of the study and his analysis of the place of digital technology in society.

Accenture Keynote: "On the Leaders' Trail: the moment of truth for the champions of change"

During the pandemic that hit the world, technology served as a lifeline: it enabled new ways of working, resulting in new interactions and experiences, while improving health and safety. Technology has definitely changed our expectations and behaviors. It has given rise to completely new realities in all sectors. At a time when companies are no longer simply reacting to the crisis, but are beginning to imagine the world after. It is the boldest and most visionary leaders - those who harness technology to master change - who will write the future. That's the message of the 21st Accenture Technology Vision 2021 report, which unveils the key technology trends that will redefine industries and businesses over the next three years.

Your asset data is also valuable

The development of the IoT has boosted data collection throughout the supply chain, from production to the consumer. The latter's requirements value this data when it speaks to them, such as traceability and transparency on product composition. The value of industrial data from machines is taking off... and take advantage of it, it is less complicated and controlled than personal data.

CIO/Procurement Department = same fight?

For a long time distant or even not at all on the same wavelength, CIOs and Purchasing departments are working more and more closely together. This is due to (or thanks to) the cloud, which puts the emphasis on usage and has reshuffled the cards of IT consumption, forcing Purchasing to become a true partner of the business and to intervene more upstream. On the other hand, IT Departments are having to consider the new consumption modes, which are sometimes a little vague. So, in this new context, how do you: manage the "scalability" of SaaS; integrate Open Source solutions and their associated services; acquire agile services; buy digital projects? And how do you include purchasing in a Green IT approach? This approach means getting rid of the paradigm of buying an end-to-end project, a volume of licenses, and typical profiles, and moving towards the engaging success of a first "totem" and internal control. It is becoming necessary to integrate new criteria into purchasing without taking the risk of wanting everything right away.

Sovereignty: how to reconcile performance and integrity of information assets?

Many French organizations, even public ones, are now choosing technological solutions from outside Europe for reasons of cost, availability and efficiency. And the crisis has only amplified this phenomenon. This attitude nevertheless raises questions about data sovereignty and the integrity of information assets. But do companies really have a choice when European "champions" are struggling to emerge? Can the Gaia-X initiative meet these challenges? Is Open Source one of the solutions? What are the risks in economic, technological and ethical terms? We must ask ourselves these questions because the choices made today must not be allowed to affect the decisions of tomorrow.

Ransomware: Should we negotiate?

Ransomware has become a real scourge and no public or private organization can escape it. In France, the authorities' watchword is not to pay. Nevertheless, some companies, for fear of losing their data completely or even risking bankruptcy, prefer to accept a transaction. But how to negotiate with a hacker? What is the role of insurers? How much leeway do companies have?

18 months later: what "technological" transformation?

It has been said over and over again: the crisis/confinements have transformed organizations with the development of telework, the acceleration of dematerialization and robotization... but what consequences for the future? How can we envisage the long-term management of a teleworking team? What is the outcome of the projects carried out "in remote"? With this experience, how is the IT department preparing for future challenges?

Digital Sobriety: from the Green IT concept to the responsible company approach

The current health crisis shows us that digital technology is a formidable lever for modernization and economic and social development. However, over the last ten years or so, we have seen a progressive awareness of the environmental impact of digital technologies within organizations, encouraged by CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policies. What is the concrete contribution of the IT department to the "low carbon" agenda of its company, and beyond that, its contribution to CSR on the subject of "digital sobriety"? What are the prerequisites and practices for IT Departments/DNUMs to set up a sustainable Information System and its digital services? What are the concrete actions that can be deployed in our companies to reduce the environmental footprint of digital technology in a sustainable way?
