The evolution of technology.

Information is being accessed in many different ways these days- through mobile devices, laptops, personal computers and the so called smartphones. There are so many ways to keep connected but what does this mean for you?

The working life

With the developments in remote access technology and online security it is now possible to work from your office from home, just this week I remotely accessed my work computer to download files, sort documents and work on a few local issues.

This is a great benefit to those with family commitments.

Equally, to those with education commitments who want to study and work at the same time.

This is something, however, that wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago as the technology was just wasn’t as flexible as it is now. It was also a rather specialised field and you would need extensive computing knowledge to use this technology. Now it is available, as a service, via the cloud ironically, that anyone can use.

Keep connected all day every day

While for many of us the idea of never being able to leave our work behind may be slightly horrifying- this gives you more opportunities to keep control when you’re not there. No longer miss meetings, calls and other important communication with mobile devices that keep you connected all the time.

While if you’re just ill and out of the office that day, worry not that you will have to let the office field itself- set up video conferences and free VOIP chats to relay key issues.

There really has never been a better time to stay connected to our personal and professional lives.

Of course, there is such a thing as information overload and sometimes we do need to disconnect from it all. It’s just that the choice will always be there: do you want to be there? Do you want to be here? What do you want from your day? It shows a social evolution to accept such a flexible and dynamic work life, away from the harrowing 9-6 daily routine.

Again, this post doesn’t break any new ground- it’s just a nice relaxed overview of the way technology has evolved and our lives with it.

We are constantly looking for new things to talk about and will have more information topics soon- thank you for reading!
