Fixing Computer Issues In The Future Will Be Much Simpler
|What will the role of the computer repair consultant be? One guess is that the residential computer services provider may transition into more of a “virtual confidant.” Like any other trusted profession, this virtual or real person would serve to protect and backup your valuable data, and protect you from cyber threats.|
Many people wait until we unintentionally removed some information or perhaps the computer fails before making use of back up and recovery software. We seek out computer consultants to help us like Virginia Beach IT Support.
What will the role of the computer repair consultant be? One guess is that the residential computer services provider may transition into more of a “virtual confidant.”
This may be similar to a financial planner, but managing people’s virtual lives rather than their financial portfolios. SaaS (Software As A Service) is the future of all computing.
Eventually, there may be no such thing as software installed onto our computers. Instead, we may use our computers to access the internet where all of our software (word processing, CAD, spreadsheets, etc.) will be cloud based and launched via a web browser. This has been a long time coming with the likes of Google Docs and 3D Systems gradual move to cloud-based CAD systems.
Our personal files may all be stored online in the cloud, as well much like our pictures and videos are all virtually stored on Facebook. The need for hard drives as data storage devices may no longer be necessary for a majority of computer uses.
In the event that computers transform in purpose to more of a liaison to the virtual world, there will be a new spark for the need to help consumers manage, control and setup their virtual worlds. They will have so many options available to them.
In the near future, career opportunities for “virtual confidantes” in this realm as they charge for their consulting services and then take a monthly commission on the SaaS services they sell their clients on.
