Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the amount of data coming at you from every direction- e-mail, instant messaging, your phone etc.  So, how do you manage it for your benefits?

It is worth mentioning, that the number of people and connected devices is constantly growing which leads to the creation of even more data and information. In 2016, Cisco claimed that by 2020 people will be using 3.4 devices per person. Additionally, the number of internet user will rise to 4.1 billion.

How to deal with such a growth?

To ease these pains Konica Minolta came up with a platform called Workplace Hub.

It is based on Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things – combining these two, can help us manage the information by connecting not only devices, but also people in the area. This leads to more effective working and enhanced collaboration within the enterprise.

As its creators introduce it:

Workplace Hub gives you the IT capability of a far bigger company and freedom of a start-up. It unifies systems, removes repetitive tasks and enhances standards.

It simplifies the use of your IT system by standardising its management. What is more, it helps to make decisions by applying cognition – this means that it thinks and deducts like a human.

Furthermore, it is to be developed in such a way to be compatible with the devices of the future like smartwalls, etc.

Thanks to its modern approach, not only may your enterprise enhance the processes based on its routines and data collected from everyone working in the enterprise, but it can also reduce the costs of IT management, since Workplace Hub blends all platforms into one and automates it.

Workplace Hub is still just a prototype, yet, when it is finally released, it may change the way the enterprises navigate and work. What’s most important, it will make the management of billions of devices smoother, and us – less overpowered by data.
