Productivity Future Vision


I believe strongly that today we only see a fraction of the possibilities how we will be working in the future. New technologies are becoming more personal, bring people together, enable us to live smarter and help us expressing our creativity better.

With the productivity future vision Microsoft looks 5-10 years into the future and puts together a fascinating picture on how we learn, work and collaborate all focused around productivity. It might look far fetched but if you see what Hololens and Surface Hub already enable (and they are just around the corner) then it might in fact not be the so distant future.

or a even nicer way to look at it is on the website with additional information. Enjoy the inspiration!

Future of Productivity – Or is it Today?

You might have seen one of the Productivity Vision of the Future videos before but they have always been studies. Microsoft asked now Infusion to recreate the demo and video with technologies currently available to showcase what can be done today from what was envisioned five years ago. The environment chosen was “the new banking experience” with “BNP PARISBAS” bank. The video was presented at the Innovation Symposium in Paris and was very well received. It is interesting – and fascinating – what today’s technology enables. Technology studies always seem so far away and then suddenly we see things happening much faster than we thought. My phone today has more computing power in my hand than NASA had in their Apollo rockets to land a man on the moon. So the girl in the movie will probably look at the video a few years from now and ask “was there ever anything else?”. The prerogative of our digital native generation.
