Discussion with entrepreneurs: the opportunities of digital mobility
Pierre Adam set the pace with this phrase ‘The obligation for mobility.’ Digital mobility allows us to remain connected wherever we are thanks to mobile telephones and the infamous digital tablets.

Having access to information immediately whilst responding to precise needs, is the key to the success of the Smartphone applications whether in the field of entertainment or information.
