FROM MOBILITY TO continuitY
For both personal and professional reasons, the border that could be sealed between work and private periods is becoming blurred. We now aspire to adapt our schedules according to our constraints, we authorize ourselves to arrange personnal treatments during working time just as we allow ourselves to work outside work hours: read and respond to emails during traveling, finishing important work in the evening or on weekends.
This situation becomes even more significant with a trend towards teleworking generalization, coworking places and the increasing coverage of Internet access.
Are we mobile only when it comes to moving from one building to another, from home to the site, from the company's offices to those of the customer? Being mobile means carrying your work tool with you in order to stay productive wherever you go. In fact, everyone is mobile even when it is only a few meters away from the desk, in the meeting room for example.
Continuity means being able to remain productive and mobile no matter where, when, online we are. It is often on this last point that the Digital Workspace comes up against, suffering from the need of a connection to the network to be operational. This is also why the laptop still seems to have a bright future, the only one that allows this continuous productivity. Provided that the company did not make it inoperative for safety reasons.

No part of the screen is wasted by the URL of the browser or by the various toolbars, icons and banners from the portal. The virtual application launches in its own window as on any Microsoft, Apple or Linux operating system
