The Consumer at Work: Creating the next generation of business applications
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
The first 60 years of business software has been focused on making operations more effective and efficient. However, outside work we now possess beautifully designed devices, which are easy to use and run a new generation of user centred software built on internet technologies. These devices and services are permeating every aspect of our lives and as a result our expectations of technology in the workplace have been changed forever.
We will be bringing together great minds from enterprise software , consumer technology and design agencies to help you find paths to building the next generation of applications by sharing ideas and learning from one other.
