LifeSize: Virtualisation And Mobility’s Impact On Business Growing
Are you set up to deal with a world where there’ll soon be 1.3bn mobile workers? That’s the challenge just set by high definition video conferencing experts LifeSize, which has pulled together some rather interesting facts about the scale of changes to modern workforces from disruptive technology trends like mobility and cloud.
For instance, did you know that a third or more of IT is now virtualised, in half of all companies? Of that ratio, 39 per cent of such virtual environments are public, 3 per cent private and 15 per cent a mix of both – while 74 per cent say the move has reduced their infrastructure costs, and almost as many, 71 per cent, say it’s boosted their productivity.
Or were you aware that the cost of sending someone to a business conference these days can be as high as £387 per person every day – while setting up a video conferencing system can cost as low as £383 but also be used over and over again? Other advantages: video conferencing can slash total cost of ownership of the desktop by half, while speeding performance in the workplace by as high as 66 per cent.
