Adaptive Workspaces: Preparing for the Future of Work

Putting the right information into the hands of the right users, at the right time, in the right way, is the long time promise of IT managers. Until the advent of intelligent content services, delivering on that promise involved static reporting that tried to anticipate the needs and desires of the users, and the focus and direction of a business. With intelligent content services, which use pattern recognition and other emerging technologies, systems can now profile users and content, tools and services. With information matched to user and to circumstance, an adaptive workspace takes the next step and attempts to conform to a user's information and tool needs as his focus of attention and context shifts. It is early in the evolution of this technology for business applications, but several scenarios exist and will be explored. The end of the presentation will speculate on how this technology will change the way people work and interact, influencing dramatic shifts in social behavior and the relationship between individuals and their jobs.
