They were not actually real-time–you received a notification not at the very time it arrived, but after the app has “polled” the server.

Technology is making it possible for companies to break away from their normal vertical department or functional work silos and become more horizontal and cross-functional. These increases are leveling the old pyramid structures we were accustomed to, and it’s about time.
