Have you ever asked yourself if why your employer is not really able to motivate you to love your work? One of the reasons why people are motivated doing what they do is because they see a purpose in their work. This fact you already see in “Maslov’s Hierarchy of Needs“. The following video demonstrates the surprising truth about what drives our motivation.
Internet of Services makes live of young parents easier
Once a baby is born the organization marathon is just starting for it’s parents: register the birth, register with the health insurance, apply for parents allowances and arrange a lot of other appointments. SAP Research is developing an internet platform aimed at helping youg parents. Automated Services will connect authorities and service providers with each other by the internet. This saves time and lakework in the future.
I have found an interesting video through the SAP Website covering the “Internet of Services issue”. Check out an watch it here:
It stands to reason that people who are “starting to come down with something” often take the opportunity to search for information on what ails them, even before they discuss their symptoms with a healthcare professional. Who gets more of those searches than anyone? Google, of course. [ReadWriteWeb]
Google offers a new service called Google Flu Trends. The service uses an analysis of Google’s millions of search queries every day to calculate flu trends.
Interesting is the fact that trends can be observed a lot earlier than by traditional institutions. Google’s users search for symptoms on internet and through these searches Google generates reports and can inform health institutions to react on these trends.
By now Google Flu Trends is just available in the United States but I am looking forward on using these service in Austria too.
