Google: Welcome to the Age of the Cloud Worker
Lyndon Fraser, Chrome Sales Specialist, Google Chrome Enterprise

Digital disruption has changed how information workers access information, collaborate, and serve customers. Employees increasingly rely on cloud-based business apps to do their jobs, using the browser as a central access point. Anytime, anywhere, any device work is now the norm. Employees need technologies that support their productivity at and away from their desks or offices. Technology decision makers recognise these evolving needs and are evolving their workforce enablement approaches to meet them. Spurred on by the need for insights, speed, and collaboration a new type of worker has emerged; the Cloud Worker. Come join us on how to rethink the workforce technology in the age of insight.
