Fields of application
ICTs play a major role in the competitiveness of companies and the efficiency of administrations and public services (health, education and security). They have also become a critical issue for the production and diffusion of cultural assets. According to the report, “Technologies Clés 2015,” the information and communications technologies (ICT) sector has become a major segment of the economy for the principal industrialized countries of the world, with a direct contribution of 5.9% of the GDP in Europe and 7.5% in the United States.

This affects almost all areas of our society, of which the main fields of application are:
- administration and governance
