GCN : October 2015
10 GCN OCTOBER 2015 • GCN.COM “The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed yet.” — William Gibson The desktop The desktop PC form factor is shrinking fast. Intel, HP, Lenovo and others have systems the size of a paperback, and the “PC on a stick” could soon pack enough power for government workers, especially when agencies use virtual desktop infrastructure. Identity management As a federal standard for derived credentials takes shape, smartphones or wearable devices could replace personal identity verification cards for building access and online logins. Biometric options are also growing fast, but it’s hard to reset a lost or stolen fingerprint. Internet of Things RFID tags are making even the dumbest office equipment connected and trackable. And sensors can monitor everything from office air quality to traffic congestion on the street outside. Monitors and telephony Dual monitors are already common, but single displays — up to 34 inches with 21:9 aspect ratio — can now provide ample real estate.
