Cutting-edge innovations and advanced technologies have always had an impact on the way we live, work, interact and communicate together. But none of them has changed our everyday life – especially our everyday work – as much as digitization.
For a long time now, our workplace has not only been in an office tower but, in keeping with the times, “out-of-office.” The working hours are no longer controlled by a clock but are set in confidence by the employees. Due to mobile devices and the Internet of Things, collaboration and communication no longer occur centrally on-site but are increasingly decentralized in the cloud.
