Frost & Sullivan Evaluates the Future ofFrost & Sullivan Evaluates the Future of Virtualized Work PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Feb. 12, 2014 - Transformational technologies drive a speedy evolution, accelerated by capable network connections, social media and mobility Just a century ago, work settings were absent of telephones, typewriters, calculators, digital computers, and even, women. People from that era would not recognize today's professional environment, which is highly automated and impersonal. Individuals working remotely are not only accepted at most companies today, but encouraged. Business is generally run at the speed of information exchange, facilitated by data communications and real-time audio and video. Yet, the world of work we know today is undergoing a metamorphosis. In 10 years, the average work environment will be as foreign to most people now as today's work environment would be to someone living a century ago. Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan's new analysis, Beyond SOHO: The Future of Work, envisions the future of the professional work setting. The research features results from a Connected Home survey of more than 1,700 respondents, finding about 30 percent of individuals indicate they work from home, at least part of the time. The analysis highlights the real reason professionals work at all, and examines the transformational technologies that are, even now, being introduced into the workplace.
