High tech, is it effective?
ANSWER: Most business people feel there is a direct link between improved productivity and advances in high tech communications over the last 20 years.  Today people are more accessible – information is more accessible.  Combine this with wireless computers and telephone headsets and voila, your office is anywhere you go.  Training sessions, meetings and seminars can all take place wherever you are – this is cutting expensive travel costs and driving higher productivity as internet conferencing becomes more popular. So, what is the downside?It is thought that the benefits far, far outweigh the downsides of the new communications technologies.   Wireless security is one issue that businesses must think about if protecting information is a major part of their business.  Developers are continuing to improve this aspect.
