Das Homeoffice ist gekommen, um zu bleiben. Die Zeit klassischer Tischtelefone geht zu Ende. Heutiges Arbeiten zeichnet sich aus durch bessere Effizienz, schnellere Entscheidungen bei gleichzeitig steigender Anzahl an Aufgaben und kurz hintereinander getakteter Termine. Es bedarf neuer Lösungen, die auf die sich ändernde Arbeitswelt reagieren. Hier setzt MagentaBusiness Collaboration ein. MagentaBusiness Collaboration verbindet Software zur Zusammenarbeit mit Videoconferencing und den Kommunikationslösungen der Telekom. Dazu gehören Access, Telefonie und Services. Und das intuitiv, sowohl auf PC und Tablet wie auch Smartphone. Dabei wächst das Beste aus zwei Welten zusammen. Zoom, Microsoft, Cisco oder auch Ringcentral - mit MagentaBusiness Collaboration hat die Telekom durch Partnerschaften mit führenden Collaboration-Anbietern Angebote für den deutschen Markt geschaffen. So bietet in Deutschland nur die Telekom mit Zoom X erhöhten Datenschutz und Hosting in Deutschland. Dabei werden personenbezogene Daten nicht mehr auf Server in die USA verschickt. Es ist heute bereits erkennbar, dass die klassische Telefonie vom Festnetz gegenüber der Übermittlung von Video- und Audioinhalten über Internet oder mobilem Telefonieren auf Rang drei abgerutscht ist und die klassische Telefonanlage mehr und mehr durch Angebote in der Cloud ersetzt wird. Das Home Office bleibt, sogenannte hybride Meetings kommen. Hier arbeiten Teilnehmer*innen im Homeoffice und im Meetingraum direkt und einfach zusammen. So wie die Gruppe im Raum alle Stimmen und Bilder derjenigen im Homeoffice per Bild und Stimme direkt zuordnen kann, wird der oder die Sprechende im Raum auch andersrum eindeutig zuzuordnen sein. Die Telekom arbeitet gemeinsam mit Anbietern von Communication- und Collaboration-Tools an Lösungen.

Today's guest is George W.. - no, not that one, but a man with his own mission to shape this country and make it safer across many industries. George Waller may have more luck than the former president because he - and his company Zerify (formerly Strikeforce Technologies) - have focused on cybersecurity for 21 years and invented two methods of securing video conferencing to protect private data - keystroke encryption and out-of-band authentication. Covid changed the way we do business and conduct meetings and the most proprietary and classified information is discussed through collaborative communications. George initially approached the popular video conferencing platforms (the names we all know and platforms we've all used!) to offer security solutions, but was unable to make headway. For some, refusing his company's help was due to a lack of manpower and others just failed to foresee the increase in breaches that a switch to remote work models would bring - or how long we would all be working remotely. Hackers follow the money and they know that video conferencing is hot now. When it comes to protecting conversations about mergers and acquisitions, disaster relief plans or government initiatives (among countless other examples), “zero trust” cybersecurity is a must. George explains what that means and discusses how Zerify ensures that every single user is verified before entering a conference. He also talks about the importance of classifying conferences according to priority levels for security so the proper controls are in place. From this cybersecurity visionary you will learn why we are in danger if we (and the government!) don't make cybersecurity in video conferencing a priority!

COVID-19 has challenged club managers, and their teams to suddenly adjust to a new work environment – for example, social distancing, remote working, taking on the jobs of absent workers, and being able to respond quickly to changing needs and to make smart decisions to keep the business of the club running. Team members were asked to step in and take on new responsibilities, even if they did not have the skill sets for those jobs.Now, as clubs are settling into a “new normal” routine for doing business, savvy club managers have a better feel for what skills are crucial to maintaining operations and staying in business. Many of these skills are “soft” skills related to interpersonal connection, informed and confident decision making, and the ability to communicate more effectively in a post COVID world.In this episode of The GIG Podcast, we are joined by the Australian based corporate trainer Steve Herzberg, Managing Partner of NRG Solutions as we talk about many relevant topics club GM's are faced with in this day and age including how to coach, guide, and communicate with your millennial team members, top tips for GM's on how to effectively communicate online when presenting to your board and team members, the importance of being present when communicating with others, and how to deal with the unnecessary and ridiculous complaints you've received from members and guests during these most challenging times of running a club.Highlights from this episode of The GIG Podcast that you don't want to miss include:7:37 – Hear Steve's thoughts on the state of the industry right now in Australia where they've just come out of lockdown.13:35 – Find out the differences in the conversations that are being had at clubs by GM's today in comparison to before the start of the pandemic.22:14 – Listen to how to coach, guide & communicate with Millennial team members, and help them to develop into “people” people.24:54 – Learn about the first thing Steve warns GM's about when communicating online and delivering team member training and board presentations via live video.31:12 – Get Steve's top tips for presenting virtually to your membership or team members when you're the GM.39:23 – Hear an “Above & Beyond” story that illustrates the importance of being in the moment and why that is so important today when you're the GM of a club.46:57 – Learn about the acronym R.A.I.L. and how you can use it to remember people's names when you meet them for the first time.53:29 – Hear Steve's advice for any club manager for how to deal with the unnecessary and sometimes ridiculous negativity that members and guests express from time to time during these most challenging times of running a club.About Steve HerzbergSteve Herzberg has been working as corporate trainer since 2000, establishing his own company, NRG Solutions in 2005.

It was one of the main tools that helped us transition to a work from home model during the pandemic, Zoom and other video conferencing apps.  They helped us connect and collaborate when we could not do so in person.  But a new study shows that compared to meeting in-person, creativity did take a bit of a hit.  Because we are so focused on the video screen during these meetings, we lose sight of our environments and move less, both of which stimulate creativity.  Erica Pandey, business reporter at Axios, joins us for the toll that video conferencing took on workplace creativity.

There are many ways to grow older, but one thing is certain: We're all doing it, if we're lucky. Very often choices about how and where to age are made under duress with the advent of an injury, illness or memory loss. Anyone who has been in that situation has probably wanted to turn to someone for help in sorting out the many confusing, often costly, options. David Greenwood, the founder and CEO of Owl Be There, has done the legwork and is sharing with franchisees his years of senior placement experience. With 10,000 people turning 65 daily, the projected growth in senior population is exponential. Making the right choices at the right time is critical to building the kind of lives that we want for ourselves and our loved ones. Dignity, purpose, social and emotional connection and a sense of safety are all essential to quality of life – which is the cornerstone of Owl Be There's approach to supporting later life transitions. He and his wife started the business in 2013 and since 2020 have been offering franchise opportunities, including ongoing and customized training to ensure a quick and successful launch. Owl Be There franchise owners help seniors and their loved ones navigate through some of the most challenging times in their lives, providing essential guidance for choosing the best housing and care solutions based on medical needs, budget, and preferences. The company's proven model supports a business that is built simultaneously on cultivating referral networks and managing families in crisis. We are all at our most vulnerable when a loved one hits an aging milestone. The options can be overwhelming and decisions tough to make. That's why Owl Be There franchisees need to have both the empathy and patience to support customers and the knowledge base and logistical expertise to help them execute the right plan. Giving seniors a hopeful vision – and the roadmap to get them there – is a passion for David, who has a wealth of knowledge that he's eager to share. The Owl Be There franchise fee is $54,400 and includes extensive training and resources. “We are a light in the darkness,” says David. “We can show people what to do when they don't know where to turn or who to turn to.”Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Owl Be There and its franchise model has come up with new ways of reaching out to and working with clients and their families, but one thing remains constant: The ongoing and growing need for support.· Purpose, dignity and love are core ingredients to cultivating happiness as we age.· Timing is everything: With the right forethought and decision-making, seniors can enjoy a great quality of life as they age.· Owl Be There franchisees must be innately empathetic and patient with some level of leadership experience. With those qualifications and the tools, training and resources provided, franchise owners not only find their businesses thrive but that the work holds deep meaning.Here's a quick look into the episode:· David explains his initial impetus for getting involved with senior living and ultimately leveraging his sales skill set in the elder care space.· There is a crisis among seniors in need – a population that will continue to grow exponentially:o The growth rate of the 65+ population is – and will continue to be – three times greater than the total population through 2030.o More than 10,000 people are turning 65 each day.o The aging population is going to grow from 40 million today to 70 million in 2030. · Even those with mental or physical ailments can thrive as they age if provided the right living situation, social and emotional connections and opportunities for growth.· Videoconferencing and virtual touring has become a standard since pandemic; not as personal as experiencing communities live, but a place to start with the opportunity for in-person visits when appropriate.· Owl Be There franchisees learn quickly that they are building their business on two tracks: One focused on cultivating contacts and referrals and the other being prepared to jump into crisis intervention mode at any given time.· Franchisees typically place about 20 customers into either assisted living, memory care or home care (at an average of $4,000 per person) in their first year with that number generally doubling by the end of year two, at which point most hire at least one part-time senior living assistant. · Owl Be There franchisees must possess compassion, empathy and the ability to be manage through stressful situations. David finds that these intangible qualities often align with people who desire to operate their own business.· The Owl Be There franchise fee is $54,400 and royalties start at a discounted 6%, eventually increasing to 8%. Inclusive of training and other additional fees, the all-in investment for a quick launch is between $85,000 to $98,000.· Owl Be There's signature differentiator is its highly customized training program, which includes experts who mentor franchisees on an ongoing basis in the following areas: o Contracts and getting in the door to sign up additional local assisted livings.o Customer lead generation.o Logistics of family management and facilitation.o Psychological support and reinforcement around decision-making.o Account management and financial planning. · Owl Be There offers franchisees a deep foundation right out of the gate, with national contracts in a number of states and marketing/sales tools at the ready. · At the heart of Owl Be There is a deep commitment to crisis management and providing people who are vulnerable or unsure the resources and support they need to make the right choices.

Git allowed us to do Cloud-native development. It gave us the tooling for a distributed source control, continuous integration, container image distribution, and others. The rate of development improved with Git. However, the one thing that Git did not give us is better operations. Git focuses on collaboration between developers and versioning, but it was never intended to help in operations. However, this was the case before GitOps. GitOps gives you a mechanical, programmatic, automated way to operate. But why? Why would you want this new way to operate? Why does this matter? Ok, before we dig deep into any answers, let's start with another question: How do you know your systems are in a correct state now? If your auditors come to your office the next morning and ask if all your applications are running in your Kubernetes Cluster in a correct state now? How do you prove that? In this episode, we will dive deep into GitOps and its raison d'etre. We will answer questions you may have asked about GitOps, like the advantages and disadvantages of adopting it. We will also walk through the important patterns and security considerations in adopting GitOps. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thedevopsfauncast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thedevopsfauncast/support

These days, like most working people, in any given work week, I spend over 20 hours on video conferences. During COVID, my church went to online services and zoom small groups. Conferences and celebrations we'd planned as in-person social gatherings became virtual events. Working parents are suddenly having to homeschool over video conferencing platforms. No matter what your season of life, we've all had to adjust to interacting with other people digitally. From having to keep your 6-year-old engaged on a web call while you are working to getting used to seeing yourself on camera. Video calls have limitations with ramifications for our social interactions. For example, it's tough to read body language, and so it's harder to pick up on how people feel. Also, according to the University of Berkeley, the science of touch shows us that we humans crave physical contact, which neither video conferencing nor social media can provide. It only took me a few months of shelter in place orders for me to reach a breaking point. I was burnt out from being on video conferences most of the time whether it was for work or for social reasons. I was weepy and snotty which is not a good look for video. I had to get it together!
