Pentalog has been Soluti’s reference partner since day one. The WebTech agency has entrusted us with front end, back end and mobile coding operations for their clients. 10 Pentaloguians are already working full-time for developing our partner’s operations on a daily basis.
Alexander Vallin, the founder of Soluti, and I know and appreciate each other since a long time ago. Our decision to extend Pentalog’s offer in the Rhône-Alpes region was thus a natural outcome. The 3 brands and service lines offered by the Pentalog Group can now be further deployed by Alexandre and his team:
- Pentalog Institute, the Group’s IT consulting and digital strategy department, offers solutions to support and finance innovation (fundraising + public schemes).Read more « Pentalog acquires a stake in Soluti to extend its offer in the Rhône Valley »
Almost all SMEs directors agree that the companies’ digital transformation has become crucial. Reality shows however that SMEs act as rabbits in front of a truck: they freeze!
When McKinsey’s research on acceleration towards digital maturity shows a 20% reduction in the number of operations for the companies that did not manage to adapt to digitization and an increase by 40% for those that did, it’s more than obvious that choosing sides becomes the no. 1 priority.
The common mistake is not to ask when, because everybody has already understood it has to be immediately, but to say: “Quick, I need a website, a shop, we need a Facebook page, etc.”. The term “digital” can be very confusing in this transformation message. What we have to do is organize aRead more « How does digital transformation impact the companies’ strategy? »
For almost 10 years now, Cloud Computing has become a common word for all the people working in the IT industry. Looking back at the growth this activity has registered, we can surely confirm its progress. Nevertheless, the Eldorado promised by analysts is most certainly not here yet. What are the main restraints? What about perspectives?
Rarely in the IT outsourcing history has an operation been so “forced” as Cloud Computing. Cost reduction, shadow IT decrease, robustness, pay for use, reinforced security… All the arguments were in favor of a massive participation, minus the market. This didn’t work for many reasons, making the Big Bang impossible. The instinctual reaction is: “If you force me, I counter”. And the inevitable question is why change an IT world that already works? Only when theRead more « Cloud computing and digital transformation »
I think it’s high time we had a brief transparent 2013 overview in a plain language.
The consultancy and outsourcing services in digital strategy
As anticipated, 2013 has been a very difficult year. I will no longer insist on the issues we have already debated in January and February. Two weak points would be the activity of the Pentalog-Ausy joint venture – whose sales department is not managed by us and whose most important contract registered a 75% loss (although we had equally signed a contract with the global semiconductor sales leader) – and the one of Pentalog Germany, which registered a less predictable slowdown.
Nevertheless, these two counter-performances have been magnificently absorbed by the French and US markets. The former alone has brought us a 20% growth increase during a gloomy year andRead more « 2013 Year in review »
When reading the article headline I’m pretty much sure most of you will be thinking that Boston and its lobsters swept me off my feet and consider me a day dreamer who would better return to his Château des Hauts in France before losing his marbles. But I will stick to my guns writing this article. I will nevertheless not go further than this as other companies must probably have taken the same path and exceeded our operations in volume. I really have been thinking it through and discussing with specialists: over the years, Pentalog has become the world’s no. 1 startup incubator! And I am just about to tell you why. One of Boston’s finest experts in charge of conducting one of the world’s biggest startup competitions shares my view, as well asRead more « Pentalog is the world’s no.1 startup incubator! »
On March 21st I took part in États Généraux du Cloud organised by EuroCloud France association. It was a truly dynamic day with rich exchanges during the workshops, quality participants and companies that really deserved their prizes.
During this event, Ms Laure de la Raudière, MP (UMP) has made an interesting intervention talking about her vision of the digital economy where cloud has definitely a significant place.
The participants have largely admitted that the innovation and research & development start-up incentives are, in France, well implemented and truly valuable. In addition, emphasis was put on the improvement of OSEO practices.
We received from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research the renewal of our R&D tax credit accreditation for 2012-2014. This enables our customers to integrate part ofRead more « Start-up incentives for innovating companies »
In these election times, in France as well as in the USA, this is a popular word. Easy to use and definitely catchy, it reconciles the extreme left, the extreme right, the extreme center and the elderly. It works almost on its own! There is a risk involved, meaning the potential for a lot of foolish economic decisions, but in general politicians and journalists tend not to care about it.
For example, we systematically forget to say that, when an Indian company orders 127 Airbus planes (which will bring 10 billion to the South-West of France and Northern Germany), this happens because there are more and more Indians who can fly due to earning higher incomes. Of course we want to sell these Airbus planes to them! But it would be even better if theRead more « Relocation, tax spoliation… just of few thoughts concerning the demagogues from all walks of life »
