Post #1 Automation
Automation has changed how technology is viewed in industries across the world. One of the questions posed in class was whether technology is an indispensable comity or if companies viewed technology as a dying art that sometimes acts as more of a hindrance than a help. National Public Radio wrote an article about how factory workers do not think that automation could replace their jobs completely. Companies spoke out saying that technology will be used to help factory workers make their jobs easier not replace them. At Prudential, I worked under Global Business Technology Solutions where I found that technology has transformed the business. Instead of tech jobs such as help desks, which are now automated or outsourced, technology is now a tool used to increase efficiency. Now technology has become a tool to help employees gather data and complete tasks more easily. Automation is the one of the first steps in the right direction. Through the use of automation, employees across industries can put aside tedious tasks and concentrate on more important things that impact the business. To work and stay within the technology sector, you need to contribute to using technology as a tool that makes the business better.
Do you feel that automation is the future of technology? Do you feel that more companies across industries will automate?
