TED Salon: The Next Wave | Zebra

The Next Wave


The Fourth Industrial Revolution is bringing on a tsunami of change that will dramatically affect the ways that we interact with and adapt to technology. How we choose to ride this wave will determine the shape of our future. How can front-line workers – from retail to healthcare – deliver better performance at the edge of business operations? The aftermath of “The Next Wave” depends on us: the tools we utilize, the expertise we tap into, and the heart we bring to the future we build. Watch industry leaders share their thoughts about how data is redistributing power at the edge of the enterprise.
