We are at the beginning of a dramatic shift in how enterprise workers will be empowered by technology. To-date, technology has predominantly touched the lives of knowledge workers: those of us sitting behind computers at desks. Most people don’t work this way.
For the first time, we see a future where everyone – from healthcare workers (doctors, surgeons, nurses, etc…) to industrial workers in energy, manufacturing, maintenance and more – and the organizations who employ them, will see their jobs dramatically improved through technology.
Through software running on wearable computing technology, we can deliver always-on, just-in-time information to the edges of any enterprise and blur the line between personal knowledge (what’s in our brain) and institutional knowledge (the best practices) of your organization. Not only will this enable highly skilled workers to be safer, more knowledgable, and efficient, but it will create opportunities for just-in-time job training for all workers. All enterprise workers – whether on the hospital floor, manufacturing facility, or oil rig, etc. — will be able to perform complex tasks by tapping into the best practices of their organization (e.g. watching a training video in the field right before performing a complex task), and communicate in real-time with remotely located experts who can guide them through the task at hand.
We’re working towards a future where the field becomes intelligent. Using networks of sensors and wearable, network-connected devices, will enable work at the edges of the enterprise to be performed with a dramatic increase in efficiency and safety.
It is an exciting future indeed. Join us.
