3 Tech Innovations Making the World a Better Place

Posted on 03/12/2021 by vmwareemeasmt

From privacy breaches to data leaks, digital fraud to online divides, we’ll admit it, the technology sector doesn’t have the best reputation.

However, we’re committed to technology as a force for good, not evil.

New and innovative technology can help the global population become more efficient, it allows us to shop quicker, to solve problems at the click of a button, but it’s more than just that.

Technology can (and does!) help us work towards a more sustainable tomorrow, it can help emergency services save lives faster, or can pave the way for a more inclusive world, and we believe that should be celebrated.

That’s why we’ve rounded up three key tech innovations that are helping to make the world a better place.

“Smart Hospitals”

With our healthcare providers under more strain than ever as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the technology sector continues to innovate and support hospitals and healthcare providers as much as possible.

The invention of the ‘smart hospital’ has been instrumental in saving workers time, resources, and budgets. A handful are already pioneering service delivery based on the support of AI, apps, and cloud solutions. And one of them is Essen University Hospital, whose smart services are built around cloud and cyber-security solutions from VMware.

UK Essen’s IT unit is far better able to cope with the huge increase in data volumes and applications. Doctors and nurses can use virtual patient dashboards to access all relevant information immediately, thereby producing faster and more accurate diagnoses and treatment schedules. Internal processes that used to be paper-based are not digitalized, which makes running the hospital so much simpler. All in all, the modern IT infrastructure from VMware enables UK Essen to manage its services more efficiently. Find out more here.

The Virtual Desktop

Sustainability has risen rapidly to the forefront of the public agenda in recent years, with the recent COP26 event highlighting the need to act now more than ever.

The virtual desktop, virtualisation software, and digital transformation, on the whole, allows organisations to successfully and quickly manage workforces remotely on a large scale.

The result?  Our virtualisation software help customers realize higher levels of operational efficiencies in their data centres, resulting in a positive benefit to the planet by reducing CO2 emissions.

Timesaving tech for emergency service workers

When it comes to responding to an emergency call, every second counts. Responding just a minute slower can sometimes be the difference between life and death for those in need.

Mobile devices remove the need to go back and forth to the station to retrieve data – a task that typically takes an hour or more every single day. These devices contain all the data frontline officers need when they need it. Built to withstand extreme conditions, they’re tough enough to take on challenging environments while keeping frontline workers in contact with command, dispatch, fellow officers and even first responders. If an officer is down in an incident, automated data sharing can connect the critical incident information to emergency services at the push of a button – protecting police teams and ensuring everyone’s in the know when they’re on-the-go.
