Posted Leave a commentPosted in Tecnologia e Gestão

In the world of technology, every year is important, because the evolution in this sector is a constant and what today is a novelty, tomorrow may already be outdated. The end of the year is always a time of balance and it is time to analyze the main technological developments of 2017 and the impact they had in the business world!

Artificial intelligence

Who doesn’t know robot Sophia? This humanoid was developed by the company Hanson Robotics, of Hong Kong, and is able to reproduce 62 facial expressions. It was created to be able to learn, work and adapt to human behavior. The fact that this robot has received the citizenship of a country this year is a very important step for the world of artificial intelligence. The great goal of this new form of intelligence is to make the life of corporate employees easier by performing repetitive and more bureaucratic functions. 2017 was a very important year for this area and it is expected that in 2018 the trend will evolve further.

Cloud storage and software

It is no longer new that the use of Cloud has been growing in recent years. The increased security of information and the ability to access data from any device and anywhere in the world are factors that have led companies in 2017 to opt for these solutions. This was the year in which Cloud’s position was strong in the business world, and today there is no longer any mistrust of cloud solutions, but rather a growing need and demand.

Bots

The bots are systems that can simulate human actions, played the role of virtual assistants. The main purpose of using this technology is to make the user experience more interesting. The bots are programmed to give information about products and services without having to do research (good examples of this are Ikea’s Anna’s assistant and Apple’s Siri). In 2017, bots have become better at interpreting human language, and more and more companies choose to use these small robots, especially in the after-sales service areas.

Mobility

The present is mobile and there is no doubt about it. In 2017 it has been proved that mobility has to be part of companies’ lives. A recent IBM study reveals that we spend 90% of our time next to our mobile phone. Over the course of this year, technology companies have become aware that if they are to win in today’s competitive world, they must adapt to mobile devices. Having a mobile-friendly website and software that works on mobile phones and tablets is a must to stay one step ahead of the competition.

Internet of Things

This year, the number of devices sending information has grown dramatically. It is estimated that by 2020 there are between 20 and 30 billion connected devices. The great goal of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to make objects more efficient. For example, in a production line, through this system, it is possible to detect possible problems in machines before causing damage to the whole production.

The best movies about technology

Technology is present in our lives and it is undeniable that it is increasingly part of our daily lives. In the world of the seventh art, several movies have been launched that address the theme of technology and are true artworks for those who are in love with technology. In today’s article we cover the 5 most inspiring movies ever about technology!

Matrix

The Matrix trilogy tells the story of Neo (Keanu Reeves), a man hired by a group of rebels who is against the domination of machines. Upon leaving the “matrix”, Neo discovers that he lived in a scary reality, without ever having taken it for granted. This trilogy is almost mandatory for fans of technology because in addition to being very well made films and unforgettable action scenes, raises very interesting and philosophical questions about the concept of augmented reality.

2001 – Space Odyssey

This classic dates back to 1968 and it was written by Stanley Kubrick. The main objective of this film was to predict how the technology would be in the year 2001 and for that it had the help of more than 50 companies and organizations. After the year 2001, we can say that some of the technologies foreseen in the film actually came to execution, while others did not pass into the real world. The main technological predictions shown in the film are interplanetary travel, the colonization of the Moon and artificial intelligence. In the movie we see an artificial intelligence system called HAL and it is impossible not to compare it with Siri and Google Now. It is worth to see and realize what was the mind of the people who made predictions in 1968!

Minority Report

The 2002 film starring Tom Cruise uses a movement interface, a reality that is set in 2054. Steven Spielberg recruited the help of technology advisors, among them MIT engineers. Detective John Anderton thought the system was perfect until the system turned against him. Based on a book by famed science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, “Minority Report” has its action passed in Washington D.C., at a time when the crimes were completely eliminated. Tom Cruise is Detective John Anderton, who is responsible for the Pre-Crime unit – where, through psychic technology, it is possible to arrest the killers before they commit the crimes. However, Anderton will find himself in trouble after being accused of murdering a man he has not yet met.

The Bicentennial Man

This film is based on the work of science fiction author Isaac Asimov and focuses on the conflicts of a machine with consciousness. The plot begins as the robot Andrew, played by Robin Williams, develops feelings for the family that bought it. It is a very interesting film for those who love technology because it questions and makes us wonder if a product of technology can not be considered alive and if it does not deserve to be treated as a being with real feelings and emotions.

Eternal shine of a mind without memories

This film has qualities of drama, science fiction and romance. It portrays the relationship of Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet). When their relationship ends, they decide to use a technological procedure that clears their brain memories and thus avoids the suffering of the end of the relationship. This film is worth seeing as it shows us how human relations are currently affected by the evolution of technology.

[Free e-book] BAM: The importance of real-time information for meeting objectives

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Tecnologia e Gestão

The business world works at an extremely fast pace, which means that it is imperative to be constantly updated about what is happening in organizations, otherwise you will lose business opportunities and won’t detect problems in a timely manner. The globalization of access to information and the constant development of information technologies have contributed to the existence of products such as Multipeers. Capturing data for the creation of dashboards where the current state of a company is found is increasingly necessary for the control of operations and consequent maximization of results.

Why is it necessary to act in real time?

Markets are becoming more competitive and consumers, as they are more informed than before, are increasingly demanding and are looking for solutions in a practical and fast way. Nowadays, everyone “lives running” so that acting late in the business sector can lead to irreversible losses in profits and competitiveness. A company that makes its decisions based on reports with a few days will always have a reactive and non-proactive presence.

What is a BAM system?

A BAM tool consists of monitoring the company’s business processes through management indicators. Managers track all processes in real time through a simple and intuitive dashboard that can be defined as the global management cockpit of the company or organization. Through the implementation of a BAM system, managers can cross performance information and through this crossing can find production failures, for example, and act immediately, ensuring that these failures will not have harmful consequences.

Multipeers as a BAM system

In most companies, decision-making is based on reports, intranets, and e-mails that require the user to search for information. Due to this reality, many companies lost business opportunities because they didn’t have timely information. Likewise, on many occasions decisions have been made on the basis of outdated information, rendering them ineffective and wrong.

To combat this difficulty, Multipeers comes with the objective of delivering relevant information about the business in real time directly to their devices (desktop, tablet or smartphone). By using Multipeers, you don’t need to spend time looking for information, making processes and decision making much more agile and effective. In a simplified way, Multipeers assumes itself as a global, automated and real-time management cockpit.

Technology has changed the way we work and one of the areas that has evolved most is the management of human resources. Companies have to keep abreast of technological developments since only then they will be able to meet the expectations of the employees, be able to keep the best talent and improve the company’s results.

Less bureaucracy

Excessive bureaucracy has always been one of the great enemies of people management. Delayed and complicated processes have always guided companies. These complicated processes made the talent tired, so the rate of retention of talent in companies was very low. Due to the technology, it is possible to automate more and more processes and nowadays the processes have become simpler and faster. Shared documents, automatic fills and management software make people management simpler and less annoying.

Mobility

Mobile devices allow employees to be closer to the business even if they are geographically far away. Nowadays, many of the company’s employees have smartphones where they can check emails and resolve customer issues. This makes the company more efficient because it responds more quickly to situations.

Strategic action of human resources

The human resources department deals daily with bureaucratic issues and before the integration of technology everything was very complicated. The tasks of these professionals were misaligned with the goals of the company as a whole. Nowadays, due to the technology, the human resources department is a support tool for the accomplishment of the company’s objectives. With the use of the right tools (eg KPI analysis tools), it is possible to identify and form collaborators with leadership skills.

Real-time people management

Software that allows you to analyze the business in real time is very important for the management of human resources. With a true and up-to-date knowledge of team availability, it is easier to solve any problems, reorganize work teams and ensure company productivity.

The more automated steps, the more time you will have to focus on other important things to improve the business.

No need for clicks

BAM tools update permanently and automatically, so there is no need for user intervention. Instead of being the user looking for the information, it is the information that, in an autonomous way, finds the user.

Facilitates decision making

BAM tools make decision making more effective because they prevent errors from occurring since they eliminate the need to collect data from many platforms. As they have a simple and interactive interface, all information is presented in a practical and interactive way, providing all the information in one place, giving the manager all the data he needs to make the right decisions.

A importância da informação: dicas para nunca perder os seus dados

The importance of information: tips for never losing your data

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Tecnologia e Gestão

Business information is one of the most important assets in companies today. Business data consists of information about suppliers, customers, competition, strategies, among other documents that must be kept confidential. If these data are not stored properly, they may be lost or exposed to the outside, compromising safety and confidentiality. This type of situation is very damaging to the image of the company, so it is necessary to follow rules and strategies that allow to keep the data safe and private. Find 5 important tips to never lose your company data!

Make backups frequently

Nowadays all the information (or practically all of it) is digitized so it is vital to reinforce data security. It is necessary to keep backup copies in at least two different locations and it is advisable that one of these locations be in the Cloud because it is very unlikely to lose data that are hosted on the web in this type of services. Establish a backup routine so you don’t run the risk of not recovering the latest documents. Cloud services let you set the backup frequency you want in a timely manner.

Automate everything you can

If you have well-defined processes and well-established rules, it will be easier to optimize the work and leave a part of it delivered to the machines. Repetitive work is boring for the developer and to free him from routine processes is a way to leave him free to perform other functions. In addition, automated processes are faster than manuals. Automate backup and recovery frequencies.

Create a security policy

A survey carried out by the Ponemon Institute states that 73% of information technology users ensure that exposure of company data is due to internal errors, negligence or deliberately by employees. To avoid this, it is fundamental to create a security policy that includes e-mail retention (a good example is Office 365), that is, you can define that all emails that contain the word “login” must pass through a Moderator before being sent. Another important point is to define which documents are public, confidential and secret. It is also important that this policy includes penalties for those who fail to comply. In this way, employees of the company will feel more motivated not to make safety mistakes.

Use encryption in files

Files containing important and confidential information must be encrypted in order to ensure that only authorized persons can access the information. There are free solutions that allow you to put this functionality in the files, but it is advisable to do an exhaustive search on the best and safest ones, in order to choose the right tool.

Use VPN

A virtual private network (VPN) is a type of private connection that uses a public network to access your company data. It contains a connection encryption that prevents data interception and IP tracing. This is the safest way to access corporate data through public networks such as hotels and airports.
