Enterprises are coming to terms with the fact that digital transformation isn’t a singular project with a deadline but a new way of being for workers across the business (and not just IT). Because technology is increasingly woven into every facet of our day-to-day lives, it will continue to evolve as tech expands and has a greater impact on both...

Fifty-four percent of office workers say they’d leave their job for one that offers flexible work time, according to a recent Gallup poll.

It’s no secret that the modern contact or call center is transforming from a facility that occupies physical real estate to an almost entirely virtual environment. LL Bean, J.C. Penny and other major retail brands, for instance, are shuttering many of their brick-and-mortar call centers and offering some employees the option to retain their positions, but in a “work-from-home” capacity....

Not only are branch offices growing in number as enterprises ramp up decentralization, but so is the data being generated at the branch and where that traffic goes.

Shares of Twitter jumped on Thursday when it was announced that the company passed the billion-dollar revenue threshold for the first time last quarter, as the platform’s daily user base jumped from 145 million to 152 million as 2019 wound to a close.

As 2019 comes to a close, 66 percent of companies embraced remote work, and for good reason: When businesses don’t have to gather all of their staff at HQ every day, bosses can broaden their search for talent beyond who is available locally, while giving employees more control of where and when they work, which has been proven to pay...

In Boston and other coastal tech hubs, the booming startup culture has been a boon when it comes to amping up the economy and attracting new residents, but something of a burden where factors like traffic and mass transit are concerned.

When it comes to working in tech, being in the “right zipcode” is no longer the barrier to entry that it was in years past, a report from CompTIA suggests.

Google recently published an eye-opening report that looked at the impact of remote work on large organizations, a topic the behemoth search engine-cum-tech monolith is well suited to explore.

Remote work is by no means a new concept, but recent high-profile announcements suggest that this model is fast graduating from “a novel approach” to an operational standard across industries.
