In the fast-paced era where technological changes are quickly taking over the world, it might be difficult to predict what the situation will be by the end of the year. There, however, are some changes that are likely to make a boom in 2016. The following are the top game-changing technologies predictions for 2016.
The mobile workforce
Through the use of cloud-based business applications, there is likely to be a big change in the way businesses connect with their employees. It is possible for an employee to be at work the moment they switch on their mobile phone. The result of this is that there will be increased productivity as well as flexibility in the way people work. Just as was the case in 2015, the popularity of the traditional office setting will continue going down while virtual offices shift from computers to mobile phones. Connecting through the required data regardless of where employees or employers are will be the key.
Security of devices and the cloud
As business turn to cell phones, the security of their data becomes more under threat. Security has been for a long time dedicated to computers and therefore, there will be the need for these companies to turn to cell phone security too. This is likely to see an emergence of unique apps that are more effective than the ordinary ones that have been used by smartphone users over the past years. You are likely to find customized apps that will make it more secure for businesses to connect through mobile phones.
The complexity of compliance
One of the challenges that businesses face when trying to comply with the changes in technology is being consistent. There is a policy that the organization has to stick to even though they also want to move as technology changes. This, therefore, creates the need for solutions that will help businesses to remain relevant to their customers and stick to their core value even as they move with technology. This does not have to create a complex situation that will make the organization look like it lacks direction.
Of course, there are going to be many other technology changes in 2016. What is without a doubt is that many businesses that embrace changes in technology are likely to experience exponential growth. This is likely if they know how to incorporate these changes in their operations to achieve the best results.
