So many new technologies have emerged in the past decade — and so many more are in the process of emerging — that it’s easy to miss larger trends amid this constant stream of new devices, collaboration platforms, cloud-based services, and other products of the digital era that are transforming the workplace.

I’ve written a lot over the past few years about workplace collaboration and how the right technology tools can help enable enterprise teams to be productive, no matter where various members are located.

Plus de mobilité et de télétravail : la tendance en entreprise ne montre aucun signe d’essoufflement, tant que les employés aspirent à plus de flexibilité quant aux lieux et horaires de travail.

house-in-isolation

I’ve been working from home for almost 20 years as a technology and healthcare writer/editor. While it’s second nature to me now, at first I struggled with the isolation.

work-from-home

The trend toward an increasingly mobile and remote work force shows no sign of stopping as employees demand flexibility in where and when they do their jobs.

Les pistes à suivre pour que votre stratégie mobile ne batte pas de l’aile

Rares sont de nos jours les entreprises qui n’exploitent pas le filon de la technologie mobile pour faire croître la productivité de leurs employés et rendre leur activité plus agile.

It’s the rare enterprise that isn’t embracing mobile technology as a way to increase employee productivity and overall business agility these days. By allowing workers to access enterprise data and back-end services from their smartphones, companies enable workers to do their jobs anywhere and at anytime. But the number of connected devices these workers routinely use has increased […]
