For years the paradigm in the technology sector was simply that business drove innovation. The needs of business outweighed the needs of the individual. Over the past decade we’ve seen a shift from business driving technical innovation to consumer technologies driving change in business. After all, technology has become so prevalent in almost every part of our lives. Technology allows our employees to remain in touch and productive on any device from anywhere in the world. If business expects, and almost demands, this of today’s workers why wouldn’t consumer technology drive business-use?
So many of the current initiatives from MDM to BYOD to Big Data have their genesis in consumer technology. Business demands an ‘always-on’ workforce and in turn consumers demand lighter, faster, and more functional technology that can ease and automate their lives. We look to CES annually to help form our strategic advisement and roadmap for the coming year. CES is the premier stage to debut the latest and greatest consumer technology. We use this data combined with that of both internal and industry-leading analysts to plan, predict, and prepare for the coming consumer-tech trends and products. We’ll be on the lookout and provide the analysis for the next “D” that your users will be asking to “B” into your BYOD environment.
