This is the office environment of the twenty-first century. If you are currently evolving from a startup to a medium-sized enterprise, then you already know that you have your work cut out for you. Interestingly enough, in this day and age of the so-called internet of things within what is now widely acknowledged to be the Fourth Industrial Revolution, your work is potentially still going to be labor intensive, in more ways than one.
Because look how all the major multinationals have developed. You see how they have shipped out much of their labor requirements to foreign shores in order to deal with staff costs. While wages over there may be cheaper, the level of skills being utilized is surprisingly high. Add to that the fact that they too have got expert computer engineers working out there as well. They need this servicing backup plan at all times.
Because they are dealing with remarkably high volumes of trade and processing. And no longer are subsidiaries to be caught napping on the other end of the globe. Because this is a 24-hour global enterprise. In reality it is indeed a virtual reality. Today’s CEOs are also on the ball. That might be you too. Or are you yet prepared to have your finger on the pulse at all times? Do you know what is cutting about your business?
Of course, you are not God. This is why you need expert computer engineers standing by to deal with sudden breakdowns in the middle of the night. They are like your emergency rescue workers. You often hear of it. Systems shut down during the day. But by the next morning, at the very latest, everything is back up and running. Business as usual.
