Nureva Span readies business for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

At its annual meeting in January 2016, the World Economic Forum released a report that opened with this statement:

“Five years from now, over one-third of skills (35%) that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed. By 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have brought us advanced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence and machine learning, advanced materials, biotechnology and genomics. These developments will transform the way we live, and the way we work. Some jobs will disappear, others will grow and jobs that don’t even exist today will become commonplace. What is certain is that the future workforce will need to align its skillset to keep pace.”

Nureva Span

In the report they highlighted the workplace Top 10 skills required by 2020, of which The top three skills were Complex problem-solving, Critical thinking & Creativity. The report also showed the dramatic elevation in importance of creativity – from 10th in 2015 to 3rd in 2020.

Here at Rapid Technologies we feel that our Nureva Span product and especially its latest version meets the challenges of businesses and schools into the next decade. To remind you the Nureva Span visual collaboration system transforms a user’s walls into expansive, digital workspaces. The system combines a panoramic projector with intuitive software and apps to create a cloud-based canvas that’s projected onto a wall and simultaneously accessible from personal devices. Users can create, share and edit ideas and information by working directly on the wall or on their own devices via the Span app. All changes made on the wall or from a device are instantly visible to all users in real time.

For professionals, the system replaces the sticky-note wall, enabling real-time ideation, design, planning and other activities by teams who need to be immersed in visual data.

For students, the system fosters active collaboration through the process of sharing and organising ideas to create deeper understanding. In any setting, the system’s flexible components enable users to create a variety of panoramic, surround or mobile configurations.

As CEOs and executives in charge of human resources worldwide look at their needs leading up to 2020, it’s opportune that the Nureva Span system supports the skillsets that these groups most need to develop and that they will most highly value.

Business face other changing realities around dispersed teams and the need for quicker innovation all play well to the strengths of the Span system.

Opportunity abounds for the Span system in organisations big and small, across multiple functional areas. In fact, in any activity that needs the input of all team members, the Span system can play a role.
