Technology a Catalyst for Changing Lives
“Cloud computing has the potential to generate a series of disruptions that will ripple out from the tech industry and ultimately transform many industries around the world.”
Cloud technology in particular has been cited as the technology capabilities to change our business lives. According to an article published in the Wall Street Journal, John Hagel, co-chairman of the Deloitte Centre for the Edge, Deloitte’s Silicon Valley-based research centre, says that “Cloud computing has the potential to generate a series of disruptions that will ripple out from the tech industry and ultimately transform many industries around the world.”
99FM’s MYD Smart sat down with Herman Botma from Tablet POS Namibia, a cloud based technology services company, to find out technology can change the way you do business.
According to Herman, “technology evolves every day and adapts to people’s needs making life more convenient.” Tablet POS Namibia specialises in tablet point of sale systems which delivers business information to the business owner in real time from anywhere in the world. Meaning business owners are always able to keep track of what is going on in their business.
One of the keys benefits of the way in which technology is evolving is in data protection. As Herman explains “Using Cloud services means you never have to back up your data. In today’s busy life, there isn’t always time to sit and wait for backups. In addition using cloud technology protects your data from being stolen or lost as all your data is saved on the cloud. This is one of the biggest advantages of newer technology.”
The Wall Street Journal notes that with cloud computing technology, small businesses will be able to participate on the global field with much more ease. “To satisfy the new markets being created by the cloud, small- and medium-size companies will leverage the cloud and get a bigger slice of the action. Small- and medium-size businesses will go from being constrained to certain geographies due to budget limitations to having the ability to scale globally with significantly reduced overhead costs,” says David Dobson, an executive vice president at CA Technologies.
Another point Botma from Tablet POS Namibia makes is in the aesthetics of your computer system. This is in line with the Wall Street Journal article that notes that the future of computers is invisibility. “As the power of the cloud spreads, one effect will be to make software and computing more invisible”, says Dan Reed, vice president of Microsoft’s eXtreme Computing Group. “Your interaction with computers will be more hands free. Expect to see more of this type of computer intuition because of the cloud. You will be able to walk in a room and there could be hundreds of sensors in it that could respond,” Reed says.
Botma notes that “Gone is the heavy metal piece of equipment sitting on your counter.” With the introduction of cloud computing, your technology systems can be “Professional and clean.”
