The Future of Work: 7 Technologies That Will Unsettle Any Employee

The Future of Work: 7 Technologies That Will Unsettle Any Employee 
Tanvir Zafar | Oct 9, 2017 307 views No Comments


If there’s anything we can say about the future, it’s that none of us can say for certain what it will bring. Times are changing – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. What used to be the norm 20 years ago is no longer the norm today – just like what is the norm today will not be the norm 20 years from now.



And once more, we are currently going through a series of changes – changes that will greatly affect the way in which we will work – or not work. Some technologies may seem like an improvement for the future – but it will surely bring unease into the hearts of every employee.

Writing Software
Artificial intelligence has become more and more common nowadays, literally sounding the death bell for more and more jobs. A software which is slowly but surely catching on is WordSmith, an AI program which will write content for anyone in need.

Now, you could ask the question: “how could an AI write better than an actual human?” Well, from present experience, you probably know that artificial writing software comes with a lot of errors – but it has definitely improved over the past couple of years. That’s because an AI learns as it goes, and in the near future, it will most likely reach perfection. This means that people working for a content writing company and anyone else making a living out of this will be at great risk in the future.

Translation Software
How many of you had fun using Google Translate in the past, simply because it seemed to you that the translations were way off? Granted, when online translators started taking shape, they did not have enough data to go one – which is why every translation came up with so many blunders.

Nowadays, however, translating software got smarter – to the point that even if you are trying to find a mistake, you are not very likely to find any. What does this mean for people that have a degree in translating? Well, the thought of going through a career change will surely cross their mind.

Automatic Insurance Software
Ai strikes again, this time in the insurance industry. In Japan, for instance, they developed a piece of software that can analyze and process all kinds of data very fast – much faster than any human possibly could. What could this mean for employees in the insurance industry? Well, it’s definitely something to lose sleep over.

Scheduling Software
In a world dominated by computers, we will enter a world where computer will make our schedules for us. Backed up by an AI, this technology will arranged our days based on collected data, putting the jobs of people in secretarial offices at risk.

Furthermore, this is also a good way to stalk keep track of your employees. The employee time clock, for instance, is another piece of software that is heaven for employers – but hell for

The Misalignment of Digital Transformation

The Misalignment of Digital Transformation | www.seconde-lecture.fr | Scoop.it
A new survey finds a "widespread stall" in digital transformation efforts, suggesting that its leadership is in crisis. Half of senior executives polled said their company is not successfully executing 50 percent of its strategies, according to the new report from Wipro Digital, "A Crisis in Digital Transformation." While most executives believe the company is clear on the definition of digital transformation, an obstacle to success is the lack of alignment on what exactly digital transformation means. "Digital transformation efforts are coming up short on intended ROI, in part because digital transformation is as much a leadership issue as it is a strategy, technology, culture and talent issue," said Rajan Kohli, senior vice president and global head, Wipro Digital. "Real digital transformation occurs when courageous leaders align goals and practices as well as theory, manage opportunity more than risk, and prioritize the future versus retrofit the present." The study surveyed 400 senior-level U.S. executives at companies with more than 100 employees about digital transformation strategies within their organization. Following are key findings.

APIs Are Building Blocks of Digital Transformation

The vast majority of organizations today either currently use application program interfaces (APIs) or expect to in the future, according to a recent survey from CA Technologies. The report, "APIs: Building a Connected Business in the App Economy," reveals that such efforts help distinguish companies' products and services from their competitors' and can extend digital reach while reducing IT costs. Simply defined, APIs establish procedures, protocols and tools for building software applications to determine how software components should interact. The report distinguishes organizations as being either "advanced" at API management or "basic." Advanced organizations are more likely to create APIs in order to safely expose data; integrate APIs with back-end data and legacies; protect the integration with the right levels of security; and derive value from these efforts through analytics and monetization. To reach an advanced state of API deployment, IT teams must overcome obstacles such as a lack of skilled resources, time constraints, and difficulties in scaling usage and managing performance. "Connected devices now number in the tens of billions, and their use is still growing fast," according to the report. "It is impossible to reach them in a safe, simplified and scalable manner without the abstraction layer that APIs provide. That's why APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation. APIs cut the development cost of innovation and market entry. They allow organizations to deliver exceptional customer experiences; create new revenue streams; and connect employees, partners, apps and devices to the data they require—anytime, anywhere." An estimated 1,770 global senior business and IT executives took part in the research, which was conducted by Coleman Parkes Research.

Untangling your organization’s decision making 

Untangling your organization’s decision making  | www.seconde-lecture.fr | Scoop.it
The ultimate solution for many organizations looking to untangle their decision making is to become flatter and more agile, with decision authority and accountability going hand in hand. High-flying technology companies such as Google and Spotify are frequently the poster children for this approach, but it has also been adapted by more traditional ones such as ING (for more, see our recent McKinsey Quarterly interview “ING’s agile transformation”). As we’ve described elsewhere, agile organization models get decision making into the right hands, are faster in reacting to (or anticipating) shifts in the business environment, and often become magnets for top talent, who prefer working at companies with fewer layers of management and greater empowerment.

As we’ve worked with organizations seeking to become more agile, we’ve found that it’s possible to accelerate the improvement of decision making through the simple steps of categorizing the type of decision that’s being made and tailoring your approach accordingly. In our work, we’ve observed four types of decisions (Exhibit 2):

Overcoming obstacles to effective scenario planning 

Overcoming obstacles to effective scenario planning  | www.seconde-lecture.fr | Scoop.it
Counter the tendency to make decisions based on what you already know: Availability bias

Scenario planning begins with intelligence gathering to understand and define a strategic problem. A planning team identifies emerging trends and potential disruptions that may affect the business. The output is typically a long list of trends, along with a high-level assessment of each trend’s potential impact.

At this point, the process is most susceptible to the tendency people have to base decisions on information readily accessible in the decision maker’s mind—an availability bias. For example, it’s easy to fall into the trap of focusing on trends within your own industry or geography or on only part of a problem, perhaps because that’s where information is most easily gathered. All this leads to blind spots.

When scenario planners make an effort to understand the confluence of technological, economic, demographic, and cultural trends within and beyond their own countries, they’re more likely to generate valuable counterintuitive ideas. For example, when a North American equipment manufacturer conducted a scenario-planning exercise about the growing importance of China, it began by focusing on the opportunity to sell equipment there. The assumption was that Chinese producers would buy the equipment to build products for their own local end customers—and that the company would need to make major investments to meet the Chinese producers’ needs.

Making sense of Internet of Things platforms 

Making sense of Internet of Things platforms  | www.seconde-lecture.fr | Scoop.it
What is a platform, and why do I need one?

Most broadly, a platform is software and hardware, which may include an operating environment, storage, computing power, security, development tools, and many other common functions. Platforms are designed to support many smaller application programs that actually solve business problems.

Platforms are helpful because they abstract a lot of common functions away from the specific application logic. For example, regardless of whether you are trying to write an application to optimize fuel consumption or classroom space, a lot of the underlying technology needs are essentially the same. Application developers just want to focus on the specific problem they are solving and use common capabilities for computing power or storage or security. A good platform dramatically reduces the cost of developing and maintaining applications.

Beset by paradox: 5 contradictions of digital transformation

If customers were key drivers behind digital transformation, this represents serious flaws in a company’s digital transformation strategy.

Data gaps

Transformation starts and ends with data, and yet 65 percent of companies admit to not acting on intelligence in real-time and are unable to roll-out data-decision making across the business.

Not very agile

Two years ago, business leaders agreed on five attributes of a digital business. One of these attributes is to innovate in an agile way. According to the Digital Transformation Index, 74 percent are falling far short. While this could be caused by many reasons, two-thirds of respondents admitted that they were not investing in agile innovation to enable software developers to code and securely launch new applications within shorter cycles.

Misaligned strategy

Nearly everyone agrees that digital transformation is an absolute must in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace. More than three quarters of organizations in APJ (77%) agree that digital transformation could be more widespread throughout their organization, but only 38% have embedded digital across the organization to counter the threat from non-traditional start-ups.

Money problems

Though 67% of respondents globally report a revenue of USD500 million to USD50 billion a year, a third of businesses blame a lack of budget and resources for stymieing their transformation efforts - despite aspiring to be a best-in-class digital business and feeling the pressure to keep-up with their competitors. The lack of serious funding could be the underlying reason for the revelation that only 39% of organizations in in APJ credit the board for driving digital transformation.

Alors qu’elles n’occupent que 2 % de la surface du globe, les villes abritent plus de 50 % de la population et représentent 75 % de la consommation énergétique mondiale. Des cités futuristes, vertes et hyperconnectées, voient ainsi le jour. King Abdullah Economic City (Arabie Saoudite), Tianjin Eco-city (Chine), Songdo (Corée du Sud)… : créées de toutes pièces et financées par le biais de partenariats public-privé, ces villes pilotes, qui privilégient les espaces verts et les équipements écologiques, se dotent des dernières innovations en matière de technologies de l’information et de la communication pour optimiser leurs réseaux (de transports, énergétiques, etc.). À Songdo, première cité ubiquitaire du monde, des capteurs transmettent les données personnelles des citadins à un ordinateur central, dans le but de simplifier leur vie (une carte unique permet de payer ses achats, de pénétrer dans son immeuble, d’accéder à sa consommation énergétique et à celle de ses voisins…). Mais si certains souhaitent ériger ces laboratoires du futur en modèle urbain, d’autres, à l’inverse, n’y voient que des vitrines technologiques sans âme, au centre d’un business juteux.

How to Develop a Business-Technology Ecosystem

You're going to need a bigger boat for IT. Why? Because ever-shifting technology and business innovations are redefining tech departments: They are increasingly morphing into broad technology ecosystems that expand via internal and external tech integration, as opposed to sitting still as standalone units, according to a recent article from McKinsey and Company. The article, "Adopting an Ecosystem View of Business Technology," provides a step-by-step breakdown of how to build such an ecosystem, with takeaways addressing IT infrastructure, open-source testing, customer interactions, cyber-security and even legal impacts. A wave of shifting trends is creating the need for this broader approach, according to McKinsey: By 2018, more than half of large enterprises—and more than 80 percent of enterprises with advanced digital transformation strategies—will develop their own industry platforms or launch partnerships with existing ones, according to industry research. By 2020, there will be more than 50 billion connected devices. "These numbers point toward a radical reframing of what IT is and how CIOs manage it—not as an internal collection of information technologies, but as a broad network of ecosystem technologies," according to the authors, Driek Desmet, Niels Maerkedahl and Parker Shi. "For the CIO, this shift also creates a significant opportunity to work closely with the CEO on business priorities and to become a prime strategic partner." The following tips were adapted from the article.
