Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.
In a three-year retrospective study that analyzed health care claims and wearable device data from a self-insured employer, Springbuk looked at the potential impact of Fitbit technology as part of a wellness program.
The analysis shows that connected health and fitness interventions can close the gap between the everyday actions that change health and drive outcomes for employee health and employer cost. Some of the key findings include:
* Employees who opted into the Fitbit program demonstrated significant cost savings when compared to the control group.
* Engaged users cost less than non-engaged users.
* The opportunity for cost savings is potentially the highest with less active individuals.
Fear not, it is possible to prove the return on investment (ROI) of your wellness program! But don’t take our word for it. Springbuk, a health intelligence platform, recently evaluated the health care claims and wearable device data for a self-insured employer (and Fitbit customer) over a three-year period.
View this webinar, Rod Reasen, CEO at Springbuk, walks you through their study and reveals how:
- Employees who opted into the company’s wearable program cost less than their counterparts
- Total costs for engaged wearable users dropped by 46% vs. 14% for non-engaged individuals
- Cost reductions were highest with less active members – encouraging news for all employee populations
