What's the future of your network infrastructure? It might be time to move towards hybrid cloud computing. Read the 10 trends that are driving the switch!

By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today”

— Gartner

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In response to a recent Gartner report predicting ever faster adoption of IT cloud solutions, we look at 10 trends that will drive traditional, on-premises enterprise IT shops toward hybrid cloud computing technology solutions.

First, let’s start off with the provocative prediction by Gartner:

“By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today.“

That’s a pretty strong statement — one that should give pause for tech professionals at companies where the IT infrastructure relies entirely on on-premises enterprise data centers at the exclusion of external cloud services.

So let’s unpack this prediction by looking at the top IT infrastructure trends that will drive most of the non-cloud holdouts toward hybrid cloud computing.

1. Enterprise Software Vendors are Aggressively Pushing Customers Toward Cloud Solutions

First up, is a marked shift by the major ERP software vendors towards a “cloud-first” development strategy.

As evidence of this trend, Microsoft recently announced a major restructuring (with thousands of layoffs) that are intended to help its Azure cloud services offering catch up with the industry’s breakaway leader, Amazon’s AWS.

The bottom line? The newest features and most exciting capabilities will appear first on cloud architecture solutions. This means that traditional “meat and potatoes” ERP and CRM packages running on local, on-premises enterprise data centers are at risk of falling into a legacy software death spiral — as vendors nudge enterprises toward more “modern” cloud solutions.

2. Rapid Uptake of IaaS and PaaS Changes the Enterprise Applications Landscape

Gartner expects that revenue from Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) will grow to more than $55 billion by 2020, a figure that may exceed the revenue from hardware server sales.

This rapid adoption underscores the philosophical change brought about by cloud computing. We’re evolving from a software-centric mindset (where IT teams were responsible for all aspects of deployment, from hardware to software) to a new, multi-provider world where companies access computing infrastructure (IaaS) or fully-tested software stacks (PaaS) to run their data on a “power by the hour” basis.

3. Younger Generation of IT Talent Views Cloud Solutions as the New Normal

Just as younger workers who were born digital (sometimes referred to as digital natives), the youngest generation of IT developers that got their start (often by building websites) have grown up on a steady diet of hacking open source software solutions (such as the popular LAMP stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) together with cloud-based storage solutions from DropBox or Amazon’s popular AWS (Amazon Web services).

In a world where companies are doing whatever they can to attract tech-savvy young professionals living in hip urban areas, companies need to keep in mind that IT job candidates will likely elect to work on modern cloud services implementations, adding additional pressure on companies to adopt cloud solutions.

4. Companies with On-Premises IT Infrastructure Will Opt for Hybrid Cloud Computing Over Pure Cloud Solutions Due to Continuity of Business (COB) and Vendor Control Issues

Do you remember the old saying “Don’t outsource what you can do yourself?”

The meaning of this traditional piece of sage business advice is that once you lose the expertise to understand what the consultants or vendors are doing, you will ultimately lose control of your business process “know how” — leaving you vulnerable to outside factors beyond your control.

This mindset (which is perfectly valid!) is likely one of the main reasons that quite a few companies have yet to adopt any form of cloud technology: they fear they will be relinquishing too much control to outside vendors (and leaving them beholden to vendors who will be difficult to swap out for a different vendor.)

This feeling of “lack of control” is further exacerbated by concerns about COB (continuity of business) when the unthinkable happens — the internet goes down, perhaps for a long, long time.

Given these scenarios, it’s not surprising that Gartner predicts companies with “legacy” on-premises IT infrastructures will choose hybrid cloud computing as their first “baby” step into cloud solutions.

(Even internet giants like Facebook are moving some of their operations off the public cloud by building their own internal, private cloud infrastructure. Read more about how IBM lost the Facebook’s WhatsApp cloud business here.)

As we’ll see next, cloud vendors like Amazon AWS are happy to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing as smooth as possible.

5. Major Cloud Services Vendors Make Transition to Hybrid Cloud Computing Relatively Painless

Given the control and business continuity concerns that businesses have about making a transition to cloud services (see the previous item), vendors like Amazon AWS are going out of their way to make it easy to extend existing on-premises IT infrastructure with hybrid cloud computing capabilities.

For example, Amazon has developed a comprehensive set of tools to help IT departments incorporate many of the benefits of cloud computing by providing software that allows existing tools, such as LDAP directory services or on-premises SAP implementations, to access cloud-based storage seamlessly.

As a result, it’s much easier to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing. (Implementing pure cloud solutions, in contrast, remains a much bigger step, which usually involves re-architecting the software applications themselves.)

6. Today’s Users Have Higher Expectations for Accessing ERP/Big Data Remotely from Mobile Devices

So far we’ve looked at the trends driving companies toward cloud computing from the technology implementation side of things.

That’s only part of the picture.

Philadelphia Work Injury Attorney Explains Workers' Compensation Benefits and Carpal Tunnel

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Marc Weinberg specializes in personal injury and employment litigation at Saffren & Weinberg. He provides useful information about carpal tunnel work injuries.

It is worthwhile to speak with a work injury lawyer to see if you may have a workers’ compensation claim and to file it.”

— Marc Weinberg, Partner

JENKINTOWN, PA, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Workers’ Compensation for Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel injury is a common affliction affecting millions of Americans, particularly those who use their hands frequently at work. If you have symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is very possible that you will be able to get workers’ compensation for your condition.

There are a variety of important factors to keep in mind when determining if you are eligible for a workers’ compensation claim for your carpal tunnel injury. You ought to consider your work activities and outside activities.

Furthermore, it is worthwhile to document your injuries as they develop and seek medical diagnosis and advice as well. Lastly, it is worthwhile to speak with a work injury lawyer to see if you may have a workers’ compensation claim and to file it.

What is Carpal Tunnel Injury?

Carpal tunnel injury is a condition in your hands where they experience symptoms such as frequent and consistent pain, burning, numbness, and tingling. As symptoms worsen, you may lose grip strength and also the ability to differentiate hot and cold with your fingers. The symptoms come about as a result of damage to the carpal tunnel, which is a casing that protects the arm’s median nerve.

According to the NIH, the specific medical mechanics of carpal tunnel syndrome are when the hand’s median nerve is squeezed or twisted at the wrist. The median nerve runs along the entire arm to the fingers and is protected by a casing known as the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel can compress or be damaged, resulting in pressure to the nerve and consequently pain in hand.

These symptoms may not immediately manifest themselves, but instead may come about gradually over a prolonged period of time as the carpal tunnel becomes increasingly compressed or damaged.

Carpal tunnel injury is mostly a result of doing the same kind of task with your hands over and over at work over an extended period of time. A common cause is typing, but this syndrome can be caused by a wide variety of tasks that consist of precise and repetitive actions using your hands.

For example, if you use a cash register or your work involves pushing or pressing objects frequently, you may develop carpal tunnel over a period of time if you do get sufficient rest for your hands.

I might have carpal tunnel. What should I do?

If you believe you have been hurt at work and may have carpal tunnel syndrome, the first action to take is to inform your employer about your condition. It is important to make sure that your employer is aware of your problem, both to prevent the condition from developing further and to document the instances and development of the carpal tunnel syndrome.

It is very important to document the development of your injury because often insurers will question the claim if there is not sufficient evidence. When there are other possible causes besides one’s activities at work, it makes the workers’ compensation claim even weaker. That is why it is important to build an evidence trail if you believe you are developing the condition.

If you believe that you have indeed developed carpal tunnel syndrome, it is then important to get medical advice and diagnosis of the condition. There are a variety of medical tests of varying levels of intensity that can determine whether one indeed has carpal tunnel.

A physical examination with a doctor sheds light on the condition through examining physical external and mechanical factors. By looking at the wrist for swelling, tenderness, and discoloration, as well as examining the fingers for atrophy and sensation, the doctor can determine if carpal tunnel syndrome has possibly already developed.

Other more precise mechanical medical tests include the Tinel test, where the doctor will tap on the median nerve to see if tingling results in the fingers, as well as the Phalen’s maneuver, where the patient will flex their wrists and see if tingling results in the first 1-2 minutes afterward.

Precise determination of carpal tunnel syndrome can be done through electrodiagnostic tests of the nervous system, which measure the nerve’s activity and consequently can shed light on if the nerve is weak or otherwise abnormal.

Other medical tests, such as ultrasound, can also shed light on if the nerve has swelled or otherwise been disfigured.

Not only are medical tests important for determining if you have carpal tunnel, but they can also serve as useful evidence in proving your workers’ compensation claim.

How can I get workers’ compensation?

If you believe you may have developed symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, you should then consult with a lawyer to explore whether you have a possible workers’ compensation claim for your injuries.

Workers' compensation is a federally mandated program that can provide you compensation for being hurt at work. While each situation is different, workers’ compensation acts as an insurance program for employees who have been injured as a result of their employment, no matter who is at fault. You may even be able to get relief years after the injury occurred.

The most important aspect of getting workers’ compensation for a carpal tunnel injury is to prove that you were hurt from your employment situation itself rather than from other possible causes, such as medical conditions that are unrelated to your employment. That is why documentation and other evidence remains vitally important.

For example, assume you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from work as a cashier or typist at work. However, in your free time, you also enjoy playing the piano or writing books. In that case, you will need a trail of evidence as well as a strong case to be made to show that you were hurt at work rather than as a result of your outside activities.

Furthermore, if you have a disease such as diabetes, you will need to show that you were hurt at work as a result of your employment rather than the carpal tunnel injury is a result of a separate medical condition.

Thankfully, it isn’t extraordinarily burdensome to prove that you were hurt at work with a carpal tunnel injury. While it varies by situation, you will often need to show just by a “preponderance of the evidence” or “clear and convincing evidence” that your carpal tunnel injury resulted from your employment.

Many Americans every year are able to get workers’ compensation for their carpal tunnel injury. If you believe you might have been hurt at work and have carpal tunnel, it is worthwhile to explore your options and see if you might be able to get relief and compensation for it.

I’m ready to file a claim. What’s next?

If you believe you are developing carpal tunnel syndrome or may have already developed it as a result of your activities at work, it is important to speak with a work injury lawyer to explore your options and determine if you may be able to receive compensation.

Will Laboratories Embrace Medical Cannabis as Marijuana Legalization Takes Hold?

Within the next 10 years, the legal cannabis market is projected to grow to $50B in annual sales. What does that mean for testing labs? Read more!

Legal North American marijuana sales totaled $6.7 billion in 2016 — a whopping 30% year over year increase as more states have legalized marijuana sales”

— Arcview Market Research

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As legal cannabis markets take root in individual US states and across Canada, laboratory testing companies have the opportunity to provide new quality control, testing and certification services for a wide range of botanical, edible, and infused cannabis products — for both medicinal and recreational uses.

Analysts Project Legal Cannabis Market Will Grow to $50B in Annual Sales Within Ten Years

Times are indeed changing when a 99-year-old Wall Street Brokerage firm conducts its first investor conference on the potential growth of the legal marijuana market. That was the scene this past January as Cowen & Co. briefed well-known institutional investors — including those from Fidelity Investments and Janus Capital Group* — during their “Cannabis Colloquium” event.

*You might want to check the fine print of your 401K investments more carefully from here on out to see if you are invested in cannabis!

According to a report by Cowen and Co.’s market analysts, annual sales of cannabis will skyrocket from $6 billion to a cool $50 billion by 2026 — if (and this appears to be a big ‘if’ at the moment) the Federal government legalizes cannabis sales across the US.

Arcview Market Research is another firm conducting surveys in the cannabis market. Their latest report says that legal North American marijuana sales totaled $6.7 billion in 2016 — a whopping 30% year over year increase as more states have legalized marijuana sales. Arcview projects North American cannabis sales will reach $20.2 billion by 2021 — thanks to an astounding 25% projected compound sales growth each year.

Big Money Makes Investment Bets to Monetize Legal Cannabis Market

Now that twenty-eight states have made medical cannabis available (to a greater or lesser degree), investors are looking at ways to enter the market despite the threat of a Federal crackdown.

A San-Francisco-based startup, called Eaze, is providing an on-demand delivery service that allows its customers (scrupulously called “patients” by Eaze) to order medical cannabis (always called “medicine” by Eaze staff) at the touch of a button. To say that Eaze (which claims to be “the UBER of pot”) is ambitious is an understatement: it’s already developed a smartphone-based application that allows patients to get a medical evaluation by a doctor and, presumably, an immediate prescription for medical cannabis. If this feature takes off, one could imagine Eaze-based doctors displacing a significant number of brick-and-mortar based primary care doctors in the future as well.

To date, Eaze has received $23 million in funding.

There may be many more cannabis start-ups on the way, thanks in part to Gateway, a start-up accelerator based in Oakland that’s offering its upcoming class of budding entrepreneurs (pardon the pun) access to a modern workspace, business coaching services, and a $50,000 investment — in exchange for a 5% stake.

Meanwhile, Cowen and Co.’s investment banking arm helped Canopy Growth Company (a publicly traded Canadian marijuana firm) raise $60 million this past December.

Investors are also combing traditional companies for cannabis opportunities — last year the share price of Scott’s Miracle-Gro Co. rocketed up by nearly 50%. Investors saw potential growth opportunities in its line of plant fertilizers and hydroponic gear, which they felt were well suited to the burgeoning indoor cannabis farming market.

The growth potential for cannabis sales even extends to our pets: The New York Times reports that pet owners are increasingly looking to cannabis-based products to help their pets with a range of conditions, such as anxiety, seizures, and arthritis.

Growing Need for Laboratory Testing Services to Assess Marijuana Potency, Purity, and Quality

Given the increasing consumer demand for a wide-range of cannabis-based botanical and edible products, the laboratory testing market has awoken to find a potential bonanza on their hands.

Consumers are looking for assurance that legally-acquired cannabis products they will ingest are properly tested for quality and efficacy.

Here are just a few of the cannabis testing regimens that laboratories can provide:

Certify that the product delivers the expected levels of marijuana potency by measuring the full range of THC and CBD concentrations in the ingredients
Certify that the product is free from foreign material contamination, including insect or rodent damage, pesticide residue, as well as excessive or dangerous minerals concentrations
Certify that the product meets standards for the amount of bacteria living on non-sterile surfaces by performing microbial bioburden screening tests

What is the difference between THC and CBD?

Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a NW Firm Importing Products from China That Is Not Abiding to US Anti-Dumping Rules to Call Them About Significant Rewards

"If your employer or a company that you have information about is knowingly dumping their products into the USA in violation of Anti-Dumping Laws anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, please call us." ”

— Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, May 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging an employee or insider with specific knowledge about a company that is importing any type of product from China that is subject to US Anti-Dumping laws or regulations to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 for a conversation about what could be a whistleblower reward. As they would like to explain the reward potential for this specific type of information can be significant. Recently a whistleblower with this exact type of information received $1.9-million-dollar reward for exposing a company involved in a tariff-customs duties avoidance scheme with bedroom furniture made in China. http://Washington.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

In January 2018 the Department of Justice announced an East Coast based home furnishings company agreed to pay the United States $10.5 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by knowingly making false statements on customs declarations to avoid paying anti-dumping duties on furniture imported from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The United States alleged that between January 2009 and February 2014, the bedroom furniture company evaded antidumping duties owed on wooden bedroom furniture that the company imported from the PRC by knowingly misclassifying the furniture as non-bedroom furniture on its official import documents.

Products that could be subject to US Anti-Dumping laws or regulations could include:

* Furniture
* Steel
* Aluminum
* Plumbing parts
* Building material
* Auto parts
* Plumbing pipe
* Agricultural products

According to the Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If your employer or a company that you have information about is knowingly dumping Chinese products into the USA in violation of Anti-Dumping Laws via the ports of Seattle, Tacoma or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, please call us at 866-714-6466. There is no way Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or any federal agency can stop this huge problem without help. In many instances the rewards for this type of information can be very significant as we would like to discuss. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?” http://Washington.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Washington Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about a violation of US Anti-Dumping trade rules, significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Washington based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Washington can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Washington.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

You Need Attorney Marc Weinberg on Your Side: Full Interview

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

NewsWorld recently interviewed Attorney Marc Weinberg of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania to learn more about his practice and what is most important to him.

Marc is the ultimate warrior to have as an attorney. He goes to trial more than most attorneys I know and he wins!””

— Ken Saffren, Partner

JENKINTOWN, PA, UNITED STATES, May 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Marc Weinberg, Esq. is a partner of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania's Saffren & Weinberg. He practices in the areas of personal injury and employment litigation. When he was recently asked why he chose these practice areas to devote his life to, Marc stated “while I love the law and likely would make a larger mark by adding a couple of other practice areas, I haven’t because for better or worse these two areas help people the most, in my opinion.”

In a recent interview with NewsWorld (online), Marc shared serious insights into what matters most to him. And here are portions of the interview:

Rptr: So, Marc, tell me why you choose personal injury and employment litigation to focus your career and the main areas of your practice?

Atty: Picking these two practice areas was a no-brainer. You see, I have always really liked helping people and when I see how somebody’s been injured through no fault of their own, and the seriously devastating consequences that happen to these people and their families. I get upset and angry. It fuels my drive and further motivation to win, for them.

As for employment litigation, for me that is on the same emotional level as personal injury. People are victimized or cheated by employers and it is usually devastating to the employee and their families too. I want to help the victims get their lives back in order. I want to help them not to lose their homes or possessions; which ultimately can break apart a family. People devote their lives to their employers, some forgo seeing their kids on birthdays and other important family days, only to be used, abused or cheated by ungrateful employers. I thrive on helping these people and their families. I also get a kick out of beating the employers in court.

Rptr: So, if you like people and helping so much, why not chose family law?

Atty: That’s fairly easy to explain. While family law attorneys help a lot of people; sometimes everyone walks away a loser. The father or mother loses custody of their children. A marriage ends with both people hating each other and doing whatever they are advised to do to create havoc for the other side. I just can’t live like that.

Rptr: I understand that you bring a fair number of your trial cases to verdict in Philadelphia, Bucks County, Delaware County, and Montgomery County which are all surrounding Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania, correct? Do you practice in the Federal Courts, too?

Atty: Yes, and Yes! I go where I am needed and if it is in Philly or the burbs I am there almost daily. As far as the Federal Courts, I serve as a member of the US District Court for the Eastern, and Middle District of Pennsylvania, as well as the US District Court of New Jersey. I also served the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas as a judge pro-term for settlement conferences.

Rptr: Tell me one or two interesting facts about you that most people don’t know.

Atty: I am an advocate for special needs children, and am a past vice president of the International 22q11.2 Foundation. I have traveled all over the world to speak with parents of children with this genetic condition. The condition or syndrome is a rare genetic disease present at birth and is associated with recurrent infection, heart defects, and characteristic facial features.

Rptr: Wow! Anything else?

Atty: Sure, I was a Registered Agent for the NFLPA which is the National Football League Player's Association.

Rptr: You know we're going to talk more about that, right?

Atty: We can but for now just let me say that will be a long conversation…

Is Biophilic Design What's Missing in Your Office Project?

Want to increase happiness and productivity for your clients in your next office project? Learn how biophilic design can improve your spaces!

75% of workers felt more connected to their fellow employees after moving into a new headquarters building that was flooded with natural light and kitted out with indoor gardens.”

— Genzyme Corporation

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In order to increase our happiness and productivity at work, architects, interior designers, and space planners are increasingly turning to designs inspired by nature — as part of an emerging design philosophy called biophilic architecture.

In today’s fast-paced, highly productive (and in many cases, highly stressed!) work environments, many of us like to personalize our working spaces with a natural element or two, such as a leafy green potted plant, or maybe even a miniature bubbling desktop water fountain that produces relaxing sounds that remind us of being outdoors, surrounded by nature.

But do these seemingly little things have an effect on our outlook and well-being?

If you ask retail space designers and merchandisers, the answer is a definite yes. For many years, savvy retailers have incorporated numerous “tricks of the trade” to subtly influence our mood when shopping. Today’s retail environments have progressed far beyond yesterday’s ubiquitous Muzak. They now incorporate realistic natural elements, ranging from signature aromas (shopping aromatherapy anyone?) to enhanced HVAC technology that randomly alters the temperature slightly, accompanied by naturalistic “gusts” of fresh air — all designed to encourage us to be happy and, most importantly, to shop.

Of course, there’s a long history of nature inspiring design. In fact, you might ask yourself, what could be new about design being inspired by nature or vice versa? For example, if we look back thousands of years to the classical order of Greek columns, it is thought the fluted columns took their original inspiration from wheat harvests bound together in sheafs. (This figurative representation of real-world physical objects is known as skeuomorphism, an approach that has given us both virtual buttons and sliders on the UI of an iPhone as well as ersatz, vinyl wood-grain sided station wagons in the 1970s.) Product designers and engineers often look to nature for inspiration, for example, the study of gecko toes and chameleon tongues has influenced the development of non-stick adhesives — a design approach known as bio-mimicry.

But what we’re talking about today is neither skeuomorphism nor bio-mimicry, but a concept known as biophilia, first written about by the German philosopher Erich Fromm in the middle of the twentieth century. Fromm postulated that humans have an innate interdependence with nature — a concept he termed biophilia — that’s intertwined by eight basic human needs:

-Relatedness
-Transcendence
-Rootedness
-Sense of Identity
-Frame of orientation
-Excitation and Stimulation
-Unity
-Effectiveness

In his 1984 book Biophilia, American biologist and author Edward O. Wilson, popularized the theory of biophilia as the “love of life or living systems” and promoted the idea that we as humans are part of nature and therefore need to have nature surrounding us in order to be happy and productive.

The Business Benefits of Biophilic Architecture Design

Since that time, the biophilia philosophy has inspired a new generation of architects, interior designers, and space planners to develop a new design movement — Biophilic architecture — that incorporates prominent natural elements directly into the visual (and sensual) language of modern interior and exterior designs.

(You may recall we wrote about the emerging Biophilia trend at this year’s NeoCon contract furniture trade show that took place in Chicago this past June 2017.)

As a design language, the biophilic design movement can be seen as a logical extension of sustainable design; in fact, successful biophilic designs can dovetail quite nicely with LEED-certified sustainable building designs.

But while the return on investment from sustainable designs is measured in terms of reducing energy costs (and our carbon footprint) or limiting the number of unnecessary building materials filling up the world’s landfills, the tangible economic benefits of biophilic design come from measurable increases in employee health and performance in the workplace.

TIP: If you want to attract millennial employees in the workplace, biophilic-inspired office designs can provide an edge in recruiting younger generation workers who are attracted to workspaces with natural environments that reflect their active, outdoor lifestyles.

Researchers continue to uncover more and more evidence of the financial benefits that biophilic design brings to our work environments.

The Human Spaces Report measured the positive impact that incorporating natural elements, such as natural lighting, careful color choices, and natural imagery can have on workers as well as patients in hospitals. In some cases, it can be quite dramatic: in a study of Genzyme Corporation, 75% of workers felt more connected to their fellow employees after moving into a new headquarters building that was flooded with natural light and kitted out with indoor gardens.

The design consultancy Terrapin has created a comprehensive guide to the available research literature the positive economic effect of implementing biophilia principles in office spaces and residential homes.

According to Terrapin, designers and architects should consider fourteen different design principles when implementing a biophilic design program, each of which can have one or more measurable health and wellness benefits:

Visual connection with nature:
Results in lower blood pressure, improved attentiveness, and overall happiness

Non-visual connection with nature:
Lowers stress hormones, increase cognitive performance, improves perceived mental health state

Non-rhythmic sensory stimuli:
Improves sympathetic nervous system activity, increases attention span

Thermal and airflow variability:
Raises comfort, well-being, and productivity levels through increased concentration

Presence of water:
Reduces stress, increases concentration and memory restoration, perceived positive emotions

Dynamic and diffuse light:
Increases visual comfort, improves circadian rhythms

Connection with natural systems:
Enhanced positive health response and perception of environment

Biomorphic forms and patterns:
Preferred by test subjects

Material connection with nature:
Increases creative performance and comfort improves blood pressure readings

Complexity in order:
Improves physiological stress responses

Prospect space:
Reduces stress, boredom, irritation, and fatigue; increases comfort and safety perception

Refuge space:
Increases concentration, attention levels, and perceived safety levels

Mystery space:
Increases pleasure response

Risk/peril space:
Increases dopamine levels and increases pleasure response
