If you know anything about the tech world, you’ll know that there is a theorised tech wall. Essentially what this means is that one-day tech will reach it’s limit. That means that the idea of light travel, light sabres or hoverboards could remain firmly in science fiction. We will crash into that tech wall and there will be no more updates, no more advances. But, if you have been keeping up with the news lately one fact is abundantly clear. If that wall exists, we’re nowhere near it and might not even reach it in the lifetime of anyone already born. Next year is filled with tech innovations and advances that are going to change our world again.
But before they are released it’s worth thinking about the tech that is already readily available. In doing so, we can investigate how and why they could benefit your business.
High Speed Internet
Faster than the speed of light? Not quite but we’re getting close to internet that is instant. Any business owner will tell you that the faster the internet the better. After all, it will allow you to transfer information more quickly and that in turn means more profit potential. Of course, it used to be a problem if your business was in the middle of nowhere, but not anymore. Even an industrial business in the harshest environment imaginable can have high-speed internet. That’s thanks to the innovative, rugged edge router. The design of the smart box is supposed to withstand anything be it rain or shine. No matter where you’re working, you’ll always be connected to your clients.
Next year developers are going to start marketing VR to the masses. This will start with the gaming industry but there is already plans for the film industry to jump on board. In fact in two years we will have our first hollywood blockbuster that can be properly experienced in VR. You can bet top marketers are already working on ways to use VR for business promotion. But until it’s released, they’ll have to settle for augmented reality or AR. AR has actually been around for a lot longer and you might have seen it in little codes on pieces of paper or emails. When viewed through a phone or digital device these codes come to life. It’s clever marketing and a form that is certain to make your business more interactive and interesting.
Of course, it’s not all good news. Due to the increases in tech, criminal life is also getting easier. Now, it doesn’t take a genius to hack into a private computer network. You just need the right piece of software. But as ways of access increase so do the forms of digital protection to keep people out. If you want to keep your computer network safe, it’s best to invest in some form of IT support. This might be an anti-hacking programme or it could be a full team of professionals at your beck and call. Either way, we’re sure we don’t have to tell you how important it is to keep your network running.
We hope you see how useful tech is to your business. If you invest in the right types you can guarantee you will lead your company to a higher level of success.
