Just under 12 months ago, I reflected on the progress we had made with the Technology Perspectives blog that shares thought leadership from CSC technologists. I knew that there was more great content for us to share, and 2016 has started to see that coming out.
Here are just a few chosen extracts from the year:
We’ve looked at productivity and what makes us productive. The discussion about productivity and place was particularly active this year:
- Productivity: It matters more now than ever
- Getting ahead in the productivity race
- Productivity and place: Where are you most productive?
The technology changes in the workplace have also been a significant theme, covering devices to Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things. Much of this adds extra context to the company’s Journey to the Digital Enterprise white papers:
- The future workplace is contextual
- Contextual experiences: When your world comes to life
- Contextual workplace: The journey has started
- Digital workplace: Adopting conditional experiences
- Windows 10 and new device management options
- From a World of Watson to a World WITH Watson
- Delivering experiences: A look back at our workplace journey
- Sensors and Sensibility: The Internet of Things
All of this technology change is going to require a significant change in the skills we all need. Skills and experience has been another topic we’ve covered this year:
- Giving back as a STEM Ambassador
- Growing your skills in the digital age
- IT’s the way that you say it: The pitfalls of parlance
- The CSC MyWorkStyle DevOps journey
- ‘War Games’ and umami: Pulling my boots on and walking the walk
One of the great things about the technical community in CSC is that it’s so broad. It’s difficult to highlight this broadness without covering all of the blog posts, but here are a few other good reads, in no particular order:
- ‘Server? What server?’ Becoming serverless
- Do you need a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) alternatives plan?
- Is it time to STOP expiring passwords?
I’m really looking forward to sharing some more great content in 2017, and thank you to all of our authors.
