The Future Of Work Is Now - SAP Future Factor

The Future Of Work Is Now: "Far beyond collaboration, the digitization of work determines how we work and engage people. Technologies – such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, analytics, and cloud technologies – change the way we recruit, develop talent, and make our workforce more inclusive. They also introduce new jobs, largely with different skill set requirements. Some of the most-wanted jobs today did not exist five years ago – and many jobs we wouldn’t even imagine today will arise in the near future. Our workplace is changing at light speed.

While some of the developments are unpredictable, it is up to thought and industry leaders like us to take control and shape the future of work.
