Why Do We Want a ‘Seamless’ Future in Technology?

/, Digital Literacy/Why Do We Want a ‘Seamless’ Future in Technology?

The chances are that you have heard about the technology word “seamless.” But, do you know what it means and how it can affect how we interact with our electronic devices? It may seem that we are talking about something distant, but the truth is that systems of this type are increasingly present in our lives.

Today, we’ll show you exactly how seamless technology works and give you some examples of how it can make your life simpler in the future. Are you curious? So check out the details of this concept that promises to revolutionize technology and make the use of electronics even more intuitive and integrated.

What is seamless after all?

Before explaining exactly what seamless technology is, it is essential that everyone knows what the seams are. The understanding of this concept is very simple, needing only an analogy for the explanation to be realized. Imagine an ordinary T-shirt, looking at the seam marks you can identify where the chest ends and where the sleeve starts, right?

If we take the seams off the fabric, it is very difficult to know where a piece starts and where the other is. In technology, it’s the same thing. The concept of computing or the use of “seamless” electronics is exactly that: to make users not realize that they are switching from one interface to another – or even from one device to another, depending on the case.

The less you realize that you are navigating between different systems, the more integrated the “seamless technology” you are. And if you can not perceive their absence, it is because the programming is even more complete in that sense.

But who needs it?

Virtually everyone who works with technology needs their steps to be fast and accurate. Currently, few people have the time to use without integration between applications and systems. So it is no exaggeration to say that everyone needs seamless technology to be reduced and distances shortened in their digital experiences.

The concept is everywhere

One of the reasons why seamless computing is much needed is in the market. Using online shopping as an example, we can remember a time when each product needed a lot of steps for the sales to be completed. Today, the “Buy with 1 click” button of some stores is a clear demonstration of the concept.

On Smart TVs, it is also very clear how important it is. Netflix has released a list of the devices recommended for your system and all the models mentioned allowed “Seamless” navigation. This means that by the remote control itself consumers can switch quickly and intuitively between common channels, paid channels and streaming digital content.

In smartphones, applications that integrate for the easier sharing of information are also good examples. The ability to switch keyboards, languages and activate features? Another example. It is no exaggeration to say that the concept “seamless” is visible in virtually every industry of commercial technology available today.

Operational systems or operational ecosystems?

The seamless concept is in full synchronization with the advances in the newer operating systems, which are increasingly integrated, not only in applications but also in different platforms.

Very simple examples can be brought directly from the two major portable systems: Android and iOS. In their latest versions, it has become possible to access information stored on smartphones directly on computers (Chrome OS and OS X, respectively). Other new features include the ability to answer and make calls, send messages and interact with documents.

But, we can not leave Windows 10 aside. Microsoft’s multi-platform operating system is expected to raise seamless levels of technology to unprecedented levels. With a similar design on every device (computer, tablet, or smartphone), Windows 10 should ensure that users use all of their features anywhere, with no glaring differences.

Not to mention the possible synchronizations between documents and applications, which can bring even more ease to everyone. In sum, we can say that seamless technology goes hand in hand with the transformation of “integrated operating systems” into “operational ecosystems.”

    We all can attest to the fact that new technology is funny. It doesn’t really develop in measured steps. It lurches forward in fits and starts–sometimes hibernating for years until related developments help it achieve critical mass. Then, it can burst forth like broadband, Wi-Fi, VoIP or 3G/4G cellular–all of which have built on the success of the others. Today, powerful technologies are creating unprecedented capacity for empowerment, entrepreneurship and innovation. In fact, the combination of broadband connectivity, data availability, and access to rich media-capable devices, improved analytics, low-cost chipsets and powerful, more secure cloud platforms is driving wide scale transformation in organizations and entire industries. This all calls for a “seamless” connectivity where exchanges can happen unhindered and on demand and at a speed of light. If we go by the current developments in the digital technology sector, seamless connectivity is becoming more and more the norm in the world today.

    Seamless technology means a state in which the technology is friendly to users and greatly minimizes on time spent in transacting or research. Most people would love a platform that fulfill their expectations and helps in time saving.

    For this reason, it is important to create systems that fulfill the prospects of individuals and organizations. The future of education will heavily rely on seamless systems to carry out e Learning, career development and cloud computing aspects.

    Online learning is much achievable when systems work correctly and the learners have sufficient time to learn. It is therefore anticipated that the future holds viable technological advancements and therefore we must be ready to adopt.
