Hyper Connectivity In Our Daily Lives

Modern technology has lured us with lofty promises. Business world is reaching skyscraping heights by adopting hyper connectivity. As we go back in time, almost two decades ago we did not have access to the internet or devices that connect us today. There was no such impulse to check social media feeds every now and then. But today we can't imagine life without these gadgets and the internet. We can control so many devices from our smartphones such as television or the air conditioning. The internet of things, artificial intelligence and smartphones with advanced features are some examples of hyper connectivity. It is hard to believe that still two thirds of the global population is not connected through the internet. Companies like Google and Facebook are coming up with new ways to deliver internet and connect to the areas where there is lack of internet availability. Balloons in space and solar powered planes are being introduced to provide fast internet services all around the globe. This will be the biggest technological achievement in the coming years. 

What is hyper connectivity?

We are living in a world where almost everything is connected and interrelated, whether it is machine to machine, human to human or human to machine interaction. Likewise, hyper connectivity is a broad term that refers to the interconnection between multiple devices, information systems or the data. This high tech communication ensures that you are always connected to social networks or various other information sources with the help of the internet.

Hyper connectivity has many benefits in our daily lives. If we talk about from a supply chain perspective, it saves money, you can respond quickly in situations that demand your attention and it also increases efficiency. For example a disruption can occur in the logistic process due to several issues such as technical or mechanical faults and failures, weather conditions, political unrest, traffic congestion etc. With a well-connected logistic chain you can track and monitor the changes and communicate with your logistic team so that the best possible route can be taken in real time for the delivery of goods or products. You can make better decisions and improvements can be made accordingly.

Communication adds flexibility in your business processes too. Hyper connectivity enables you to communicate with your customers through multiple ways and have access to massive amounts of their data. This allows you to serve them according to their changing demands. For example you are able to decide what will be the best time for you to launch the product in the market. When your digital infrastructure is connected well and covers all the business data from various aspects, your machine learning system is able to produce more valuable insights. However, when everything depends on a single system you open doors for hackers. When you deal with customer and employee data you have to adopt a comprehensive privacy and security approach.

All in all, the world is moving towards the age of hyper connectivity and it is very clear that this technology has too much potential for individuals and businesses if they adopt it with care.
