The Influence of Tech Development on the World
Our elderly generation has watched firsthand how technology has impacted and shifted our world. Tech integrates into our daily lives more and more each day. Fascinatingly, tech has influenced and will continue to influence the industries we work within. There is essentially no industry that has not been touched and refined by tech throughout the years. Here at Swan Software Solutions, we provide many businesses with software applications that will fulfill and evolve tech needs within their marketplaces. Let’s take a fascinating walk down memory lane to review how tech has made its’ mark on industries of all kinds.
Fascinating Ways Tech Applications Evolved FIVE Major Industries
Industry #1: Data Management
It stresses many millennials to know that once upon a time, much of businesses’ data was stored in paper format. *gasp*. Virtually all businesses now store their data over cloud servers making it convenient for employees to find information such as documents, contracts, spreadsheets, media, and ect. This has improved collaboration within teams. Here at Swan Software Solutions, cloud servers have enabled our development teams to bring applications to the market quicker.
Industry #2: Communication
Who knew 100 years ago that you could connect with someone across the world – instantly. It’s almost like the fantasy magic potions that was read about in old books. Billions of applications have been developed to accommodate the human’s need for interaction.
Industry #3: Banking
Consumers of the United States thrive on convenience. Banks have adopted innovative approaches to banking systems appealing to users. Savings and budgeting of bank accounts can now be automated. Thanks to technology advancements, users can manage their bank accounts straight from their phone without the need of a bank teller. Furthermore, bank accounts have become increasingly digitally. Numerous online stores can connect with your bank account for payments on products and services.
Industry #4: Navigation
Maps are now used more for decoration than its’ original purpose. With the introduction of the GPS, the world became a lot easier to navigate. Instead of relying on a map and your own intuition of direction, you now have a nice lady robot telling you where to turn for every step of the journey until you arrive at your destination.
Industry #5: Education
Tech has shifted education is so many powerful ways. People can now earn a masters degree from their very own living room. According to Inside Higher ED, 1 out of every 6 college students obtain their degree from an online source.
