Day 3 Microsoft Inspire: Satya Nadella gives us food for thought.

By: Charlotte Houston
Microsoft kicked off the third day of its Inspire 2018 conference in Las Vegas this week with a keynote address from CEO Satya Nadella. Like the previous two keynotes, Satya was passionate and thought-provoking in his approach. Technological change and forward thinking were amongst the core messages, he put an interesting spin on the topic with a quote from Mark Weiser:

 

“The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it.”

 

 

Weiser, a chief scientist at Xerox known for Ubiquitous computing, was a thought leader in his area. His philosophy was based around the idea of technology being ‘quiet’ and helping to create calm.  The idea that the best technologies are those that blend into our everyday lives reflects the way that the modern day technological market is moving. Particularly with communication, it's important to be able to seamlessly integrate technology and technological changes into processes, without causing disruption.

 

Peter Hobor Geomant's Chief Technical Officer shares his thoughts:

 

“We at Geomant believe the way we communicate is changing. The ways in which people communicate as individuals are changing and enterprises must adopt this change and be there, on the same channels where people are talking to each other. Today this might look like a big change, but really soon that will be the norm, so we must not be left behind."
