The Observatory of Digital Usages is a permanent mechanism for observing daily usage of new technologies by French people.
This mechanism allows for the study of appropriation methods of new usages through global/sectoral qualitative and quantitative surveys. The end goal is to better understand new usages and to detect weak signals, new services and relationships as a result.
The challenge for brands is adopting the culture of connected consumers more than their tools.
The applied methodology follows an articulation enabling to define the social determinants of digitalization, to understand the link between the professional and personal spheres and identify the values and expectations required by various consumer categories.

Investigate usages rather than perceptions, expectations and desires: The key question is “how do you do it? “, instead of “what do you think?”
