My links of the week (weekly)

  • “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet.”

  • “Our workday world has changed dramatically with the advent of always on internet access and the explosion of mobile devices in the enterprise. Employees are no longer tethered to their desks in office buildings but are in the field working face to face with clients and customers. Microsoft’s vision for the future of work is made up of the Cloud OS (Office 365) and the mobile devices you use every day to get work done. The intersection between the two is the digital workplace.
    The Office 365 platform enables this Digital Workplace by giving employees access to corporate content and data on any device from any location.”

  • “Although data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed that of the 30.2 million people working in the UK between January and March 2014, 4.2 million spent at least half of their working hours at home, many employees have no choice over when and where they work.
    “We must not forget that not everyone can work from a coffee shop,” cautions organisational design consultant David D’Souza. “When I’m sitting in Starbucks working on a project, someone is there serving my coffee with no choice over when or where they work.”

    For those that do have more flexibility, D’Souza advises trying out environments that aren’t usually linked to our traditional understanding of work or the workplace. “
