-- Having inspired revolutionary progress in telecommunications and ecommerce through his work with Hand Technologies in the mid-90s, Roger James Hamilton has seen how important technological advancement is to pushing business innovation. According to Hamilton, high-tech workplaces ran by tech-savvy professionals have a stronghold within their industries, as these companies will have an easier time navigating business trends of the not-to-distant future. Now, Hamilton forecasts that many employers will soon invest in wearable technology as a way to improve business productivity and innovation.
Highlighting this trend further, Roger James Hamilton looks to a recent article
from Yahoo News that discusses how wearable tech may soon become a requirement for modern professionals. The article reveals, "Frank Schloendorn--director of Android ecosystems at Fiberlink, a mobile device management firm--believes wearable tech will make workers more productive. Fiberlink, which recently came out with a Google Glass platform for its mobility management software, envisions a world in which IT employees track down missing smartphones, secure company data and police the company network -- all without turning on a laptop."
The article continues, noting how many professionals are already adapting to wearable tech. Yahoo News states, "...this world isn't futuristic. It's now possible with Google Glass, which lets users execute complicated tasks--like locating GPS-enabled smartphones, deleting files and dictating emails--through voice commands and simple hand gestures." For Hamilton, this is great evidence that signifies all businesses should take note of the trend.
Roger James Hamilton explains, "The fact that workplace applications--for IT experts--are being developed and implemented suggests that this will soon become common practice for all departments within a company. IT department practices are always a great indicator of what the near future is to bring for widespread business practices."
Sharing a similar sentiment, Yahoo states, "...don't expect your company to shell out $1,500--the cost of one Google Glass unit--for every employee to walk around with a sci-fi-looking accessory strapped to their face. But you might start to see such products popping up in tech-heavy departments, like IT, where most business technologies get their foot in the door."
While the availability of Google Glass and other wearable tech products remain limited and there are many legal implications surrounding the use of such resources in the office, Hamilton believes it is important to pursue this trend. "Evidence has already shown how this kind of technology can improve productivity, create happier employees and encourage greater wellness in the workplace. For these reasons alone, it may be in the best interest of today's entrepreneurs to find ways to utilize wearable tech in an intelligent, efficient and ethical manner," Roger James Hamilton concludes.
