There is no doubt that today technology and business go hand in hand, that is why it is important that companies of all sizes keep up to date with the latest developments and technological updates.
Last week saw 5 big headlines of newsworthy news that will surely affect companies around the world. Continue reading below to get more information about the best and happening current technological news.
1.Effect of the new iPhone on laptops and PC
The new iPhone is looking to replace desktop computers and laptops. It has many more functions than the previous version and now has an OLED screen, has virtual reality capabilities, faster processing speeds and greater storage capacity. This, however, may not be good for businesses. Larger capacity in a smaller package may be good for occasional users, but business people need their computing devices large enough to read.
For staff to work on spreadsheets and other documents, their devices will have to be larger than a portable screen. The smaller size will not help business people analyze or enter data if they cannot easily read what is therein.
2.Ikea / Apple startup application
“Ikea Place” is an augmented reality home design application that runs on the new iPhone X compatible with virtual reality. Ikea customers can now make a virtual interior design of their homes with furniture by accessing this application on their iPhone. You will see how it will be before spending a penny. Pretty cool, yes?
These new applications of augmented reality will be important assets for companies in the future, but especially for those companies that provide services. For example, landscapers and roofers can showcase to their clients the end product prior to starting the project.
The Fintech company, Pefin, has recently designed an artificial intelligence financial advisory system that will provide personalized financial advice through customer feedback and machine learning. The council/counsel?is designed to be accessed online, through the chat room, so that the client never has to leave the comfort of their home.
Whether the companies like it or not, A.I. it’s here. This is just one example of the capabilities that machines have to offer companies. It is already known that robots can perform tasks more quickly, economically and accurately than humans. This recent example is proof that machines can also give humans advice. Will computers and machines completely replace human workers in the future? Only time will tell.
4.Microsoft Guest Access Software
Microsoft Teams software is currently used by more than 100,000 companies and organizations around the world. Now it offers guest access that allows companies not only to collaborate internally but also externally.
Since most companies use Microsoft Office in one way or another, the new Teams Software can be easily deployed in most business environments.
The ability to join groups throughout the organization, as well as around the world, will help reduce delays and provide more effective communication among staff.
5.Various Server Systems in the cloud
A recent technology survey indicated that almost 50% of professionals use multiple vendors in the cloud to perform business tasks. The survey also indicated that the most popular cloud vendors among technology professionals at this time include Amazon Web Services and Azure.
Using multiple servers in the cloud is a good idea for companies that use large amounts of data. While companies like Amazon and Azure are certainly reliable, you can never know what the future holds. A solid data protection strategy requires not putting all the eggs in one basket but diversifying them through multiple servers in the cloud.
You can also find companies that offer NBN plans that offer everything from private IP networks, cloud computing, virtual hosting, joint location and managed services, dedicated hosting and even domain names. It seems that everything from technology startups to cable companies is entering the cloud business as a service.
