IT Pro 20/20: The ugly side of gamification
Issue 27 looks at why you might want to reconsider team incentives, how cloud PCs are set to transform the enterprise, and why Gaia-X is the last chance for EU cloud sovereignty
Welcome to issue 27 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.
This time we tackle the thorny issue of gamification - the practice of attempting to improve performance through a variety of incentives, similar to those found when playing games. It’s something many businesses rely on to create a sense of direction among teams, but without careful consideration and management, it can be a cause of division and alienation. We speak to someone who has experienced the worst that gamification has to offer.
Elsewhere we look at the rise of cloud PCs and their effect on the enterprise, and we take an in-depth look at Gaia-X, Europe’s attempt to create a unified cloud ecosystem that many believe is already out of date.
The next IT Pro 20/20 will be available on 30 April – previous issues can be found here. If you would like to receive each issue in your inbox as they release, you can subscribe to our mailing list here.
