We are at an inflection point for IT. Think about the following:
- 10-20 years ago people had the best computer at work, the best printer and even a mobile phone! Today we see the exact opposite, a personal phone is better than the work phone. People use the latest communication tools like Google, Facebook, G+, Twitter etc.
- On their personal lives people access their data from anywhere using all sorts of devices. People use every available tool to pass their message across and contact their friends. This change is unstoppable, IT is being “consumerized”.
The questions are: “how are companies taking advantage of these new trends while keeping company data secure?”. It´s not all about having a BYOD* policy and insuring it’s secure. People changed the way they work and the world is different. We realised that we work better together, that great ideas and great solutions come from groups.
Unfortunately I see that at work several people feel locked, unhappy and unproductive.
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
I see companies every day with this problem and helping them to adopt a better and more productive way of working is what I like to do the most 🙂
