The ERA of Disruptive Technologies-2022

By VARINDIA - 2022-06-28

The ERA of Disruptive Technologies-2022

Technology continues to change our lives in subtle ways. Disruptive technologies dramatically change the way consumers, businesses and industries operate. Technology advancements such as AI, robotics, nanomaterials, biotech, bioinformatics, quantum computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) are transforming the world. People are adopting new and easy ways such as social media including Facebook, Instagram and many indigenous technologies to connect with the digital world. Digital technologies such as mobile, social media, smartphones, big data, predictive analytics and cloud are fundamentally different from the preceding IT-based technologies. Disruptive technologies provide opportunities for startup companies to gain a significant foothold in existing industries.

 

New advances in technology are still disrupting our lives in many cases for the best. Note that some of them are already in place, but they are still evolving and changing at a rapid pace, meaning the impact of these advances will only amplify. A disruptive technology has the potential to replace the existing systems or habits through its attributes that are measurable and superior. Disruptive technologies are not necessarily new or ground-breaking. Rather, it is technology that has the potential to disrupt an existing market or industry. Let's understand the view from the industry leaders:

 

Cloud adoption demands not only cloud-first but also a cloud-smart approach  

 

New products and solutions 
Through our offerings, we help customers disrupt their digital transformation journeys by uniquely accelerating app modernization, delivering powerful applications on any cloud, migrating apps to any cloud, and transforming apps with the most innovative cloud services. When it comes to cloud adoption, it's no longer about having a ‘cloud-first’ approach it’s about being ‘cloud-smart’ as well. Our offerings support this choice and enable organizations to accelerate multi-cloud strategies in the face of rapidly evolving business requirements.


Impact of disruptive technologies in the future of work
The future of work will be hybrid, and we believe that there is a huge opportunity to make the workplace inclusive and diverse while being productive and efficient. VMware’s Anywhere Workspace Solutions enable employees to work from anywhere with a secure, frictionless experience. The Anywhere Workspace builds trust to empower today’s distributed workforce. Making “work from anywhere” work for everyone requires more than just implementing a flexible work policy. Without the right technology platform in place, “work from anywhere” won’t work for everyone.


Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs
Organizations must establish novel ways of arranging work for simplicity, speed, and agility in this new world, and the pressure rests on CEOs. At VMware, we are building a strong distributed, global workforce of the future that is more relevant than ever. VMware is committed to providing employees with increased choice and flexibility as we embrace this new way of working. We are also able to draw from a larger pool of talent due to our geographic flexibility.

Disruptive technologies are completely new innovations that have radically changed an industry. Machine learning & Artificial Intelligence led automation has touched every type of industry today. With automation, new roles have also come into existence and the need for skilled professionals to occupy them.  Monitoring TV broadcast for compliance and regulations or for quality can now be largely supported by AI/ML systems. Disruptive technologies push the human workforce from the monotonous repetition of operational tasks towards innovative thinking and creating. It is transforming the workforce, business models and the economy as we know it.


Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs
Amagi has similarly adopted a flexible approach with our working arrangements. We have offered employees the option to work fully from the office (with safety measures in place), partly from the office and partly from home, or completely from home. We believe that offering a mix of options to employees is essential in ensuring that they’re comfortable in their choice of working space. It has also removed limitations on location, as we can now engage with a talent pool that is not necessarily in your city(ies) of operation(s).

“The Future of Work is Location Neutrality, not Remote Work”   

New products and solutions 


We launched Automation Hub on May 24, 2022. Users are no longer forced to weave in and out of applications and manually perform several sub-tasks to accomplish the overall activity. Instead, they can build the flow visually inside Automation Hub, and those sub-tasks complete automatically. Automation Hub saves time across the board by automating and streamlining the hundreds of activities that happen across stacks several times every month. It also improves governance by knowing what each step is and how it executes every time and that’s where the real value lies.


Impact of disruptive technologies in the future of work
Blueprints is our library of best practices, expert guides and use cases for creating composable experiences. Whether or not you’ve worked with composable architecture before, we’ve made it easier for anyone to create as if you have.

Speed, flexibility and scalability for the future are not only within reach, but easier to achieve than ever before. With our foundation, framework and support, businesses will be able to get their composable experiences up and running and create at the speed of their imagination.


Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs
The Future of Work is Location Neutrality, not Remote Work. The concept of location neutrality is a discipline for the entire organization. This paradigm shift means that where employees are located should not be a factor in their performance or participation. I envision the future of work as a hybrid model where employees can live anywhere but participate in in-person activities on a semi-normal basis. Company leadership should acknowledge that and structure organizations to take advantage of the location neutrality benefits. This is the workplace of the future, and now is the time to embrace that change.

“We are in the experimentation phase”
 

New products and solutions 
We drive product and solution innovations by making available platforms for hackathons, meetups and idea incubators to inspire innovation. Over the years, our employee resource groups and multiple forums such as BlitzCode (creating production-ready code by solving customer & product challenges), Solve!t (sharing of best engineering practices and implementation approaches), Big Pitch (business ideation and new product possibilities), Tech Meetups (knowledge sharing) and Women in Technology (learning and development for women technologists) have driven this process of innovation for our global teams. 

Impact of disruptive technologies in the future of work
Enabling technologies like collaboration software (Zoom, MS Teams and others) have made “instant colocation” a possibility thus enabling today's hybrid work environment. Team members can be located anywhere around the globe and continue to work and contribute to team projects. However, there are still informal chats, group interactions, etc that speed up processes when the team members are sitting together that still elude the hybrid work environment context. And so, forming new teams in an online world still has to catch up to forming a team in the real world and getting to know team members in a multi-dimensional way.


Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs
We are in the experimentation phase. For example, in our location where navigating traffic takes away a big chunk of time – working from home/anywhere gives people an hour or two extra to do their work and so a hybrid arrangement works brilliantly. But it certainly looks like offering a hybrid work environment as a context will become one of the cornerstones of any future work arrangement with a strong focus on enabling technologies that make such an arrangement as effective as, if not more than, the pre covid work contexts that existed.

Additionally, we added deep inline learning into our PAN-OS Nebula 10.2 which brought in the ability to detect and evade zero-day threats in real-time. We also recently advised the global cybersecurity industry to adopt Zero Trust Network Access 2.0 (ZTNA 2.0) as a successor to ZTNA 1.0 and VPNs which are far more permissive.   


Impact of disruptive technologies in the future of work
Organisations have turned to disruptive technologies like 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud, and more over the past few years to kickstart their digital transformation journeys. This has facilitated tremendous innovation and growth by delivering several benefits like enhanced collaboration, improved efficiency, and more. Making disruptive technologies a part of everyday operations has significantly widened the attack surface and provided cyber adversaries with more dangerous opportunities to orchestrate breaches. 


Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs
Look beyond VPNs to more resilient approaches, Leverage Cloud-delivered security for scale, agility, and cost effectiveness, deploy a Zero Trust Network Access framework that removes implicit trust from the equation and constantly validates every device and transaction within the network. This also involves rethinking Zero Trust as a whole where we advise our customers to incorporate ZTNA 2.0 principles like continuous review of identity and connection across their domains to stay secure, adopt secure access service edge (SASE) to elevate network security as it converges a diverse range of security solutions into one cloud-native service.

“Graph technology gives real-time insights and has multiple use cases”  


Today, businesses are able to gather huge amounts of data across formats and systems but gathering and storing data is one thing and making sense of that data is another. The challenge is to use this data to create deep meaningful insights and enhance the decision-making process for your business. This is where graph data technology helps. 


It allows you to discover what you did not know was hidden deep within the interconnectivity of those data points. It helps navigate deep hierarchies, find hidden connections between distant items, and discover inter-relationships between items. It has the ability to deliver an image which displays connections for analytical and operational applications and gives an in-depth context or better refines the pieces of information which have been collected. 


Graph technology gives real-time insights and has multiple use cases - understanding the flow of money, fraud detection, supply chain management, how relationships change over time, etc across sectors like gaming, healthcare, manufacturing, or banking.
With businesses today dealing with abundant data and increasingly focusing on meaningful digital transformation, such technologies become more relevant than ever. It adds great value to businesses by helping them traverse the journey from collected data to connected data and support them in making well-informed and accurate decisions that not only drive growth but strengthen their technology arsenal in competitive environments.

Through our Vero series, we continue to honour our commitment to a sustainable future by offering consumers, businesses, and institutions more options to reduce their ecological footprint. The PCs are easy to disassemble, simplifying the process of repairs or upgrades and expanding their lifespan. We initially started with one Vero product and expanded our portfolio to monitors and projectors. Our Vero brand will offer laptops, monitors, projectors, accessories, and more all made with eco-friendly material and reducing carbon footprint. 

 

We have expanded the SpatialLabs lineup of stereoscopic 3D products with a pair of new standalones, portable displays for creators and gamers. We have added two additions to its SpatialLabs lineup of products: the Acer SpatialLabs Views for personal entertainment and Acer SpatialLabs View Pro for commercial audiences. This generation of devices brings glasses-free stereoscopic 3D technology to gamers and home - entertainment enthusiasts, too. We also have introduced Acerpure air purifiers and Ozone Antibacterial Sanitizers in the Indian market, a product line for within the home to make the environment and homes healthier and better. 

 

Impact of disruptive technologies in the future of work

Today, companies can hire talents from anywhere, removing the barriers of visas and work permits. The pandemic has made access to talents across the globe for both the organised and freelance workers. Like today a US-based company can also hire someone from India and vice versa. So virtual technology is helping in removing the boundaries and assisting people to get better opportunities and companies to hire suitable talents. Hybrid work culture has also increased productivity, output, and better quality of work in general. 

 

Adopting working arrangements to flexibly meet business needs

It is important to keep a balance by not losing the culture of the company by having a lot of remote work but giving the employees the flexibility to choose how they want to work. People want work-life flexibility and if the companies are not up to date with such policies, then they might end up losing their talents which makes more business disruptions. So, it is very important for the companies to ensure that the employees do not leave because the companies do not have policies for their renewed outlook post-pandemic.
