Portable Technology in the Workplace – Welcoming Wearables

389

Published on

These are the slides from my keynote at the UNICOM BPM conference in London on March 20th 2014. In this talk I introduce the history of wearable computing, talk about some salutory tales from prior work with BYOD and VDI, and the threat that disruptive new technologies pose for the IT department. I close with a look into the near future, and a rallying call for STEM education and the Missing Million.
