  3. 3. The New Challenge… Today’s businesses face rapidly changing conditions, new technology, new competitive forces and new consumer trends. As we look at the horizon, we see dramatic change standing out. According to me, a “Rule of Thumb” to succeed today is optimal alignment of Information system, including people, business process and data to organization’s objectives. I focus more on optimal alignment of people (it is quit difficult !). At the heart of business, it is people who make things happen. People garner insight from business applications to drive decisions that advance the organization. But Now for the first time, there is two kind of people entering the workforce : the Web 1.0 generation and the Web 2.0 generation:  The first generation called Web 1.0 or “Digital Immigrants” (born within 1945 and 1950) is one which use technologies as accessories to resolve problems. Face to problems, they use Cartesian reasoning. Generally, they don’t like technologies change. They are not really fond of technology evolution.  The second generation called Web 2.0 or “Digital Natives” (born between 1978 and 1990). is one that has grown up always connected and always on-line. They spend an important part of their time building and maintaining their social network (Facebook, LinkedIn, tweeter…). Face to problems, they use to experiment every things they know until result. They demand access to anyone or anything from anywhere at any time on any device. At work they expect the same intuitive experience they have in the rest of their lives with their slates, smartphones, and social networks. To conciliate this two generation, we think about building robust, intuitive and ease-of-use solutions which connect organization and provide necessary information to every worker (each at level of his work) at anytime, in everything from everywhere, to make people informed and make better decisions; all this in tools they’re already familiar with
