Landline networks are fast becoming a thing of the past as Internet Protocol (IP) telephony has been widely adopted. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) now outnumbers switched telephone networks. We’re seeing VoIP markets grow quickly, even in areas of the world that are slow to embrace new technology. However, it’s the mobility option that people have come to expect, and it’s pushing the global communication infrastructure to support wireless technology.
In the United States, an estimated 92 percent of millennials have smartphones. Almost 77 percent of adults also have an Android or iOS device. Many people are doing on their smartphones what they did on their desktops only a few short years ago, from booking travel to responding to work email. In Australia, South Korea, and Singapore, the use of smartphones is even greater than that in the United States.
Automation is definitely a core innovation that has pushed technology to new levels, but artificial intelligence (AI) is pushing those levels even further. Inefficiencies and opportunities are now predicted through AI, improving analytical models that assist organizations in gaining more visibility into their processes.
But it’s not all about business. We can even use technology to forecast and plan around scarcity of resources such as food and water, prepare for social unrest, plan for major climate events, and build strategies around important applications that help manage big data.
Mobility and Social Media
We’ve never been more mobile in our communications as a society. We’re using social media to convey ideas, share thoughts, and shed light on important news that impacts entire communities. This means a single thought has the ability to grow wings and travel around the globe within days, hours, or minutes.
For business leaders, this is an important tool that they can leverage as innovators, but they need the infrastructure for mobility on their side. They need to be able to take their office wherever they go, regardless of the geographical area.
