How humans and computers working together represent the next wave of software innovation. With each shift in platform technology, we see a new breed of applications that enable end users to become more productive.
During the 1980s and 1990s, we saw growth of new applications that enabled sharing, collaboration, and communication via the Internet – including giants such as Taleo, Salesforce, and WebEx. Later on, the rise of social and mobile led to the next wave of application giants including Yammer, Assistly, and Workday. Today, we're at the beginning of the next major wave of technology innovation built on the back of data and computer processing – surfaced in intelligent ways to make individuals more productive and effective.
