A little over 25 years ago, we were first introduced to the “World Wide Web”. Since that point, technology has rapidly changed and evolved to achieve one goal: to make our lives easier, more productive and more efficient.
Over the last decade a particular type of technology has achieved just that. “Smart” technology has become ubiquitous in our everyday lives. From smartphones and watches to autonomous driving smart cars and smart homes, we are living in an era full of technology that was once only a figment of our imaginations.
The proliferation of smart technology has been evident in our personal lives for some time, but now the “smart” trend has started to invade the corporate workplace as well. Various types of smart technology are changing the way we meet, present, collaborate and even schedule our workdays. It’s even changing the physical environments in which we work as well.
And because of this rapid infiltration of smart technology, it is important to be up to date on this evolving technology. What are the types of technology you could be seeing in your office soon? How will they help you become more productive and efficient? Are there risks involved with incorporating so much technology that is interconnected at all times?
Being mindful of what is ahead for the future of work – and being prepared to adapt – is what keeps an organization successful. A “smart office” is one that not only continually embraces new technology and interconnectivity, but also embraces the security measures that will be necessary to protect the business and employee alike.
