Overheard talking about government teleworking and telejobs

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

You can’t telework with paper. We need to get to where we can work on documents on a screen. Did you ever see anyone on ‘Star Trek’ carrying a clipboard? We need to get to a point where there’s no need for a desk except as a place to put your lunch.

Wayne Leiss as quoted in The future of telework technology: A wish list

Wayne Leiss is chief information officer at the Treasury Department’s Office of Thrift Supervision.

Other items on the wish lists of telework managers include:

– The ability to share documents and edit jointly, and large screens to keep the documents readable.
– Better virtual private networks and more use of them.
– A wider array of options for devices, including a range of laptop computer screen sizes.
– Access to applications based on individual needs rather than enterprise-wide delivery.

Security is key. You need two-factor encryption, you need hard drive encryption
