Future of Work
Businesses are seeking ways to reduce operating costs, decrease high up-front costs for infrastructure and IT, increase productivity for their workforce, and create higher quality of life for their employees and contractors. Younger workers who grew up with technology are coming into workforce, and a new, more flexible workforce will drive greater efficiencies into work environments. A proliferation of “smart” devices, including tablets and smartphones, will motivate the consumerization of IT. Workers will expect immediate access to business services from any device, in any location. With ubiquitous and high bandwidth network access, the “workplace” will be increasingly virtual.
