Empathetic buildings of the future will be smart workspaces wherein there will no longer be switching between platforms, apps, and content types, producing a space enabling users to use all these types in one place and bringing together people and conversations associated with a file, meeting, or project. "The Internet of Things (IoT) era enables persona-based workspaces. Depending on the task at hand, the building can adapt to the persona's needs, with the workplace's personas changing over time," says Shaily Shah, research manager, IoT, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Thus, an employee's work context is all in one place instead of scattered throughout fragmented communication channels," she adds.
