The new standard for work will be more distant, will spark a surge of creativity in the home sector, will make edge computing more popular and will demand more automation, immersive technology and robotics. John Roese explains this.
John Roese’s point of view
These are just a couple of the takeaways from a talk with CTO John Roese from Dell Technologies. The talk is about what we’ve discovered so far from the wonderful home-work trial and where we’re headed next.
Issues pertaining to community and home climate. Not unexpectedly, Dell hadn’t had a hard time moving over 100,000 people from home arrangements to work. Dell, after all, offers thin phones , tablets, and mobile computing systems from Wyse. Roese remarked:
Then you start learning some of the things you didn’t know about before you move all. We completely realized people were going to work from home. So, we had the right hardware, the right VPN connectivity, the right network bandwidth, VDI, all those things. But we started to think that maybe we did not have the right home climate. Perhaps we didn’t have the right atmosphere to be overcome by what we call Zoom exhaustion and other modern standard scenarios.
It’ll change the idea of working from home. John Roese remarked:
Our mutual expectations on what it meant to be operating from home were false. We had this notion that work from home was about juggling work / life. You played, or you did things at home. That was what had to be tackled from school. And what we learned almost straight away wasn’t that easy. In reality there were at least four different ways during the course of the day that people had to live in or observe sitting at their office at home at any one time.
Contexts of Roese include:
An immersive work experience like a call to Zoom or people talking.
A non-immersive work environment in which you have various outputs.
A personal IT activity including responding to emails and paying bills.
An entertaining experience.
“The interesting part is that this happens in the same room. And we also found that we didn’t calibrate the computers, it was hard to transfer context between them. They didn’t have enough bandwidth. In some instances, the tools that people had in their house weren’t efficient enough to perform all those things,” John Roese also said.
