On this point, this study presents itself as a real research work necessary for the acquisition of a culture specific to our industry and as a professional and integral component of our future professional success. Indeed, it is essential to fully control the information directly related to future businesses, because this knowledge will be a great tool for strategic development decisions that will very soon be called on to take alone.
A methodology was followed rather simple in the sense that at first it identified the set of points which will develop in the paper, then collected a huge amount of information related to the study area by organizing themes (technology companies, consumer product lines, etc.). The group then wrote each point in an objective manner, to summarize in some ways the current data present in the press, websites, magazines, etc. And finally, at the end of each item detail, a point of view was given that may be a little more subjective, to mitigate the words, but not falling into a unique work of compiling information, but falling under analysis by leveraging the industry knowledge.
