Technology is constantly growing and evolving over time and companies must adapt to these changes or face becoming an afterthought. Because of this, one of the most important things to do is predict where technology is headed so you can begin development on products that coincide with the newest advancements. So with that in mind, where will the telecommunications business be in 50 years? How will conferences be held, how will businesses communicate internally, and what products will be popular?
While this is all extremely speculative, the conferencing industry in particular has a lot of room to grow in the next 50 years. By then we should be hosting meetings in virtual conference rooms using holograms. This will make it seem like you are in the same room with someone, even if they are on the other side of the word. In fact, some movies have been teasing technology like this in recent years. This will make product demonstrations much more interesting because people will have access to 3D models rather than using a flat image. Not only will how businesses communicate with each other change, internal communications will change as well. Gone will be the days of extension to extension calls, everything will be replaced by quick messaging platforms that will send the information right to wearable technology. This is already possible through the use of smart watches and instant messaging apps, but soon there will be a combination built specifically for businesses. This will cause a rise in the use of wearables like watches and smart bands and will also lead to glasses with screens built in and maybe even implants that you can get.
