Cloud computing to herald a surge in mobile workforce
As Cloud Computing becomes a reality for more UK businesses one of the biggest changes predicted as a result of the computing revolution will be an increase in the mobility of the UK’s workforce.
CEO and founder of Ziptech comments:
“One of the most attractiveeffects that Cloud Computing has on business by far is its ability to free businesses and workers from traditional constraints imposed by IT. Cloud Computing means that staff will not be bound to one desk in one office in any one location any longer. This is made possible through virtualised desktops and many more cloud-based applications being used.
Hot desking could become the norm providing more convenient working practises for staff but also will provide economies for businesses looking to reduce workspace costs. We have seen a trend towards this type of working over the past year but now economics may drive adoption of the Cloud because of these types of cost benefit – and this in turn may cause a surge in mobile working. And there is nowhere that cost saving is more in the spotlight than our public sector organisations who have had to focus on operational costs as part of governmental cost cutting measures.”
However with opportunities also come challenges to overcome with this increase in mobility. The main challenge will be for IT managers and CIOs to keep control of their IT. Governance is going to be a big issue over the next year as Cloud really takes off in a big way and changes the way we all work.
