Video and remote computing skills are gaining as remote workers are forced to explore the range of capabilities that have been at their fingertips for years in their tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices. Teachers, institutions and many businesses have been forced to use the video capabilities that were once novel or last resort meeting tools. In the future we may find ourselves managing our days and our businesses exclusively through video. It may be less expensive, more natural to do so and more the norm than meeting in person.
Other remote computing capabilities with rapid adoptions rates include 3D printing, physical security, and virtual security. Could these areas also follow the path to normalization? What about the sales and use of collaboration tools and enterprise software? If the sale of on-line apps has quickly normalized, can we expect the same for enterprise level software? If that model works for $300 apps, why not for $50k applications? It certainly worth considering.
