I know from personal experience that communication has changed, because a big part of my family lives on the other side of the ocean. What at first was family calls and contact through NetMeeting, has changed enormously in the last decade. Although my family lives in other countries, we are in contact with them every day through modern means of communication such as Skype and WhatsApp.
How beautiful it is to see that my daughter has contact with both her grandmothers on the other side of the world: Skype brings us closer together. This applies not only to my personal situation, but also for many organizations with which I as a consultant come in contact with. More and more organizations operate internationally and have to quickly and dynamically adjust their IT. They seek solutions which easily enable internal and external contact with customers, business partners and colleagues. The world is connected in a unique way that has not occurred before in the history of mankind.
