Gartner Strategic Planning Assumption 2022

Gartner predicts by 2022, as a result of digital business projects, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside the traditional, centralised data centre or cloud, up from less than 10% in 2018.

Key Findings

  1. Moving processing and content collection/delivery closer to the sources and consumers of information offers significant benefits and creates new business models.
  2. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes mainstream, analytics will be needed at the edge of the network for real-time feedback and business process optimization. This will make the use of edge computing vital.
  3. The adoption of edge computing will be slowed by a lack of awareness of its benefits and a lack of skills in its use. Organisations that lag behind in addressing these issues will miss opportunities.
  4. Cloud computing and edge computing are complementary concepts, not competitive styles of computing. Organizations that use them together will gain the benefits of both centralized and decentralized approaches.

This article from Digitalpulse.PWC.com.au looking at “Keep flexible and carry on: policies for a mobile workforce”

Key Findings

  • Workforce mobility is a useful tool for talent acquisition in a competitive market.
  • Change management and collaborative technologies are key.
  • Businesses must ensure remote workers heed cyber security advice.

Securing staff with the right technical skills is high on the agenda for Australian businesses. PwC’s 2015 Global CEO Survey showed that concerns over availability of key skills are at an eight-year high among business leaders. With 44% of jobs at risk from digital disruption in the next 20 years, to ensure future prosperity we must not only attract the right talent but employ policies to retain them, too.

Last week, Business Insider reported on what may seem as a radical approach to stop tech talent from leaving: allowing staff to work abroad for three months every year.

HR director for Melbourne-based start-up Envato, James Law, told the publication: “If an Australian company can open up the world as a backdrop for work and professional development, great workers are less likely to feel that traditional pull of heading offshore to grow their careers […] Flexibility promotes agility, which we’ll need to compete and thrive”

Whilst three months’ absence may be outside the scope of many enterprises, flexible working is without doubt a growing feature of the tech business landscape. What are the considerations for catering to a mobile workforce?
