The conclusion is unanimous: in the long-term file of the digital transformation of the State, the Covid-19 epidemic was an opportunity to press the accelerator and to overcome reluctance. “The Covid saved us two years in the digital transformation of the State”, estimates Nadi Bou Hanna, the interministerial director of Digital who leaves his functions with the satisfaction of having seen things move. “The epidemic acted like an electric shock”, confirms Pierre-Marie Lehucher, the boss of Berger-Levrault, a software publisher whose offer is mainly aimed at administrations.
