dc.description.abstractWhile the future is basically unknowable, one thing is certain. The world of work is not going to be disrupted, it is disrupted, with more disturbances to come. Traditional work practices and labor markets as defined by the 20th century are therefore under increasing pressure to remain relevant as we progress further into the 21st century. This book examined institutions, frameworks, and technologies that have emerged to support and facilitate these changes that are occurring in the world of work. It further considered how policy makers, practitioners, and workers may better address these challenges and/or adapt to changing work environments. What then have we learnt and where are these changes likely to take us? In answering this question, this chapter considers the role of Cloud-computing technologies in facilitating new work institutions and frameworks, before contrasting, comparing, and synthesizing some of the main elements that have been discussed throughout the book. This includes identifying common themes between what may initially appear to be divergent topics.en_US
