With the arrival of 2014, there are a whole range of new technologies, that will change the way people live. These innovations will impact everything from consumer products to how services are offered.
In an article discussing"Key Enterprise-Technology Trends for 2014"Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ chief platform officer, David Small, was quoted as saying, “Mirroring what has happened in the consumer technology space, enterprise technology users look for services to be delivered on demand, to a time and place of their choosing, and in the way that they want. In 2014, enterprise success will be measured by how well organizations are able to use technology to meet user expectations and harness individual innovation.”
2014 could be the year that wearable technology goes from being a novelty to being a standard part of a person’s attire. Smart Watches now can work in conjunction with smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. This makes it possible for a person to see a text, email or social media without looking at their mobile device. This could be the year that consumers are able to purchase a smart watch directly from Google.
