The Frictionless Office Meets The Internet of Things

One of the best ways to change the way work gets done is to leverage the extraordinary amount of data available today. So-called Big Data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) are impacting how companies and their employees are designing and implementing business processes — so long as companies understand how to use them.

When companies marry IoT and Big Data analytics with their meeting infrastructure, they won't just know whether a meeting was scheduled, but whether it also took place. That kind of data can help managers rethink facilities, open up meeting spaces to the people who really need them, and ensure that when employees are getting together to discuss business, they are using their time wisely and effectively.
