Today’s applications and data are constantly in flux. People are constantly on the go and their needs are constantly evolving.
All this is to say that we are constantly getting smarter, and more flexible in how we consume information. We’re becoming more like people. Today’s smart devices allow us to do things that we weren’t capable of just a few years ago. In fact, smartphones are much more capable now than they were back when we had only a small laptop and a couple of hundred dollars in our pocket.
With the emergence of these devices, it appears that the way people and organizations use information is changing. All this to say that the way people are using information is now changing. What this means for us is that we need to update our software and data to support these new ways of use. We need to do this with our own software and data.
The way we are using information in a small world of a smartphone today is so much easier than it was in the small world of a personal computer. A laptop is still the best way for anyone but the most advanced and experienced computer users to go about accessing information and documents. A smartphone is the best way to connect to the web with high speed and ease. We’re still looking at a lot of friction in our way of accessing information and documents, but we have to do it.
Most of the information that I have access to in my day-to-day life is in the form of books, software and digital documents. These things are still a lot more difficult to access than they were when I started working in the business world twenty years ago. Today we are much more accustomed to accessing information on our phones. We are used to doing so from a mobile device.
This is great news for everyone who owns a cell phone (and those who rely on them) but in a world where people have become accustomed to accessing information this way, it will make accessing information, data, and documents a little more difficult. That’s great, but it may also cause some users to prefer to access things via their phones, laptops, and other devices.
It’s not so much that users will just choose to use devices that are more efficient to access information as it is that they will choose to use devices that are more convenient to access information. It may be the case that a cell phone user will use his phone to access data and documents because it is better at accessing said data and documents. But for most, it will be the other way around, and it will be the devices that are better at accessing stored information.
It’s not just cell phone users who will use laptops and tablet PCs to access their data and documents. The technology trend, the so called “Internet of things” in which everything from automobiles to clothes is connected to the Internet, will also likely drive adoption of new devices. For instance, it will be easier for consumers to get their information and documents from the Web.
The Internet of things could be a game changer for digital life, but the way we access and manage our data may change. And that’s good news, because it means that we can access and share information without being tracked and we can share our data without fear of being spied on. So in other words, we know it’s a good thing, but its not just a good thing for us its also for the rest of the world.
That’s the theory behind the ____ technologies, and it’s also the way that some companies like Apple and Amazon make it happen. The ____ technologies are a set of protocols that enable devices to be connected to each other. These technologies are used to create “smart” devices or “smart appliances” that can do more and more things. The ____ technologies are based on what is called the “Internet of things”, or IoT.
