Productivity apps have redefined the way we work. From how we store, access, and share information to how we communicate with our colleagues and customers, they solve an acute problem set with benefits seen across entire organizations and, in some cases, create an embedded network effect within the company and across its constituents of customers, vendors, and other stakeholders.
We believe there is a new wave of productivity apps that is starting to emerge. These are applications that will embrace a much deeper level of data connectivity, and in doing so, will be poised to embrace the simultaneous – and profound – advancements in machine learning. We anticipate that these applications will enable a diverse set of end users to complete a range of business tasks that were simply unattainable with prior generations of software.
