This web seminar is now available to watch on-demand

Employees are increasingly working flexibly – using tablets or smartphones, from home, in the field, in the cloud or via VPN. They are using their own equipment in front of the telly, as well as at their desks in the office, and it is making them more productive. We all carry around several internet-connected devices with us wherever we go, and the best part is no one sees it as a burden.

Despite the gloomy economic outlook, next summer – from the Jubilee to London 2012 – presents a number of opportunities for businesses to invest for sustainable benefits, and to avoid any operational disruption the Games might bring.

Computing, together with BT, sets out the challenge for IT: how to deliver the sustainable benefits the employee-empowered future can bring, while planning for the commercial opportunities and operational challenges London 2012 presents.

Dr Nicola Millard, customer experience futurologist
John Wright, programme director, London 2012 Delivery Programme, BT
