Is Cloud the Next Frontier for Workforce Management?
The cloud is a buzz word on everybody’s lips at the moment and many see it as a new and exciting opportunity for field service management. According to research by Frost and Sullivan the field service industry is set to be worth $3.52 billion by 2019, so the question is, exactly how will it get there?
It’s a Date
On November 19th ClickSoftware will be asking whether this growth will be facilitated by the cloud. As the leading provider of field service and workforce managing software, we understand that keeping on top of this kind of technological advancement is vital for the industry. As we see more services moving to the cloud, field service companies need to consider how it can benefit them and where it can take the industry further.
Breakfast Panel Debate
At a breakfast panel debate, taking part in the heart of Soho in London, we’ll be meeting to discuss just what the cloud can do for workforce optimisation. We’ll hear from Tim Faulkner, Senior Vice President EMEA, and Mike Karlskind, Vice President of Product Marketing at ClickSoftware, who’ll be able to give us insight into cloud’s position within the industry, what benefits the cloud might bring and what the company’s position on this is.
Dr Paul Miller, a cloud computing, big data and open data analyst at Forrester Research, will be giving us his thoughts on his research into future trends for the cloud in the industry and we’ll also have Professor Leslie Wilcocks, Professor of Technology Work and Globalisation and Professor John Darlington, Director of the London e-Science Centre, on the panel. Specialising in IT evolution, management trends and cloud computing, they’ll be able to tell us just how useful the cloud can be for field service management, or whether it’s all a fuss over nothing.
How to Get Involved
It’s set to be a really interesting morning, the panel will look at what companies may be better placed than others to adopt the cloud, and what the drivers are for businesses looking to adopt a cloud solution. There’ll also be an opportunity to have your say, with the debate opening up to the audience, so you can get involved too.
