What technology will be a game-changer for your business in 2016 and beyond?

While not a specific type of technology, we have embraced the big data movement at the University of Michigan. Since the web is undergoing a dramatic shift, and is most definitely the hub of people’s daily business, expectations surrounding it are rapidly expanding. We have implemented a new “Web Strategy” to provide a consistent approach to meet user needs across all of our web properties. This includes cross-device usability, findability, consumable information, accessibility, simplicity and flexibility. This is a game-changer for us, as we can leverage this new strategy across all platforms and devices to provide more of a consistent and cohesive approach to communication and day-to-day business operations. From a digital signage perspective, this opens the door for many opportunities to tap into different data sources to provide all kinds of interactive, “real-time” information with which users can interact to really get at desired information.
