Is The Cloud something we need to step back and look at?
Are we all missing the bigger picture and not contemplating the future?
With our lives coming at a very fast-moving pace, are you really jumping on-board? Or are you thinking that having an “Internet Enabled Smart Phone” means that you are on-board the Super Highway to the future?
Whilst so much can be done with your phone or tablet, the much bigger picture is not truly been looked at. Many companies are now looking to scale down and embrace technology to such an extent, that more staff are working from home or companies releasing staff but then re-hiring them as a contractor. Many companies let their marketing or human resources departments leave but allow someone in that department to create a company and then the company awards them a contract as it is much more cost-effective.
Thus, with the ex-members of staff setting up on their own but working from home (SoHo), they tend need to have the need for an occasional office space for meeting and where does all this take place?
During the day, just have a look at your local Coffee shop or Hotel lobby or lounge – just see how many people are sat having meetings? But what about having a more corporate feel to having a place to work, host a meeting or seminar? A solution is there and is becoming more and more apparent…the “Hot Desk”…..
Individuals and companies are creating the facility for you to rent a desk by the hour, half day, day or week as and when required. This is not a thing – Regus and others have been doing this for many years, however, the benefit is really being brought back in-house with companies starting to embrace this too.
With the cost of office space plus everything else that goes with it rising all the time, companies are not only looking to reduce costs, but also streamline and make themselves more effective – so the “Hot Desk” is now coming more and more common in not just the Corporate World but with more and more businesses.
So, put this together with BYOD and the arrival in the near future of WYOD, are you really focusing on what is going to be happening? And this is before we talk about 3D Printing! Are you really going to need everything that you have in and around your business today in say a year? eighteen months? Two years?
Are you really in the know or planning ahead?
Isn’t it time you stopped and considered this?
