The concept of an office and office hours has changed dramatically in recent years, with many organizations embracing remote work. Many workers carry their offices in their pockets. They dictate memos on the subway, record inspiration in the taxi and conduct interviews on the sidewalk. Microsoft has just made that process easier with Office Mobile Voice Notes. Released in an Office Insider build earlier this year, Voice Notes goes beyond simply recording a voice memo. With the new Voice Notes, users gain real-time transcription, synced text highlighting for reviewing notes and the ability to share voice notes. Additionally, for Microsoft

The world fell apart, and business adapted. Employees have by and large adjusted to collaborating over distance. And the technology that powers that collaboration continues to evolve in powerful ways. Earlier this month, for example, Microsoft announced Mesh for Teams which delivers a metaverse meeting experience designed to improve connections and productivity. Strengthening Teams by Bridging the Gap between Physical and Digital While workplaces have transitioned relatively well to remote and hybrid work, the switch has brought significant challenges.

Automating Data Governance to Stay Ahead of Exploding Data Volume

By |2021-01-18T01:27:45-05:00December 30th, 2020|Data Compliance, Information Governance and Management, Technology|

Organizations generate huge amounts of data every day. Properly governed, that data can drive business strategy and decision-making. However, while essential, data governance can also prove complicated and time-consuming. Automating data governance can save time and money, simplify regulatory compliance, and improve decision making. Automated tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and robotic process automation (RPA) take care of redundant tasks. In addition, through identifying patterns, these technologies can strengthen data security and improve accuracy. And with automated data lineage and classification, organizations gain quicker access to trustworthy data. Augment Cyber Security with Machine Learning AI has become

Managing Data at the Edge

By |2020-11-19T03:51:10-05:00October 28th, 2020|Information Governance and Management, Technology|

Smart technology powers our lives, from wearable tech to traffic control and smart factories. Data analytics promise safer travel, more efficient energy consumption and increased productivity. At the same time, the explosion of data has created new challenges. Increasingly, experts look to the benefits of managing data at the edge to address those challenges. Simply put, edge computing refers to processing data closer to where the data is created or consumed. For example, sensitive factory machinery generates vast amounts of data. Processing that data at the source saves bandwidth. Additionally, access to real-time analysis means that the machinery can adjust

Municipal Data Governance Leads to a Brighter Future

By |2020-12-22T04:49:25-05:00October 7th, 2020|Information Governance and Management, Technology|

When it comes to innovation, government usually lags the private sector. So, when looking at data governance trends, I was surprised to find one expert who predicted that municipal data governance will show the rest of us how to improve service delivery. Indeed, the adoption of modern data governance by municipalities paves the way for a host of data-driven technologies and services. Executed properly, they have the potential to reduce risks, lower costs and improve the quality of life in U.S. cities. And with the proper motivation, it’s fair to say that local government agencies have an opportunity to lead

Despite a perception that attorneys remain slow to adopt technology, law firms increasingly embrace eDiscovery solutions. Overcoming, their fear of change and confusion amid numerous options, they are moving forward with eDiscovery technology at an accelerated pace, partly propelled by the current crisis. Indeed, what seemed like a huge task (switching to remote tech) was shown to be both doable and beneficial when we had no other options. The lockdowns and forced changes in working practices showed us that the process of eDiscovery technology adoption could be accelerated. Prior to the pandemic, the global eDiscovery market was expected to grow

How 5G technology will change the game for medical practitioners

By |2020-10-06T06:32:10-04:00August 9th, 2020|Technology|

How the technology will have a profound impact on healthcare delivery. For doctors and other medical practitioners, 5G technology can help them not only perform their jobs more effectively, but also do things they couldn’t have accomplished before. That’s primarily thanks to two factors. First is 5G’s greater bandwidth, which will let them download files anywhere from 10 to 100 times faster than before. Second is its low latency, or how long it takes from the time a user requests an action to the network’s response.  The impact should be especially pronounced in several areas: remote healthcare, communication within hospitals,
