If there were one feature, one capability, one application which would change your productivity at $company what would it be?
Dan Hushon
everything just gets "updated/upgraded" like the cellphone does?
Dan Hushon
new services are easily integrated thru a common SAML on boarding?
Cherry Pie Valencia
reliable and fast virtual conferencing capability to allow better collaborations across locations
Max Hemingway
Search with API for personalisation
Phil Lathaen
single sign-on....logon once and let me get on with my work!
Sukhi Gill
Enterprise Search across people, functions and projects. Democratise the enterprise data and content for everyone and not just the few.
Dan Hushon
appropriately persistent team collaboration environment?
Max Hemingway
@sukhigill The reverse is also needed on publishing data into the right place. AI saving capability based on content and audience
Jerry Overton
Access to clean, up-to-date streams of data that has a global context
Dan Hushon
@Max_Hemingway or even the ability to recognize who could best be joined to a collaboration to save a problem...
Steven Wheeler
Not just "persistent" but multi-media and pervasive - collecting, analyzing, transcribing and indexing transparently BUT with appropriate "need to know" intelligence.
Sukhi Gill
@Max_Hemingway i think remembering where to put stuff or remembering to add meta data approaches don't work. Agree AI based approaches to "save" are required.
GayathriDevi SureshBabu
Need to move to concept of working anywhere, anytime and with any device. Extensive use of cloud can be of good help, for workplace optimization.
Jerry Overton
you don't think we're there yet?
Marc Wilkinson
@sukhigill search that works !! bring on the GRAPH. I couldn't agree more. help me find people, content, insight
GayathriDevi SureshBabu
@JerryAOverton Even the software development or testing if exposed over SAAS, we could be more effective. Not only accessing email or IMs.
Sarah James
the transporter or the virtual equivalent save travel costs but feel like your there
lewis richards
@GeoSuperGirl Just look at HighFidelity.io or Facebook Spaces to see where enterprise collaboration is going
Sarah James
@stroker Hi Ya! knew this was one you would like my answer too! Just think star trek
Sarah James
@stroker facebook spaces is very cool

What is the role of location in the new workplace?
Lisa Braun
Interesting question, since some would say working virtually means location plays no role, but others (IBM) want workers in the office for face-to-face collaboration. & certain tasks (sw development) are location-specific for certain clients.
Linda Laer
In a recent paper from Marc: Workers expect choice in the devices, apps and locations they use. In fact, the workplace has evolved into “my place,” which is wherever I want it to be at the time. I recommend it!
Maria Pardee
location of choice for our employees. ideally, wherever you chose to work. and the workplace location should be build for collaboration. otherwise, why would you go "into" work
Maria Pardee
work is wherever you are
Maria Pardee
@gferguso4632we are seeing trends where companies are moving "back to the office" to promote f2f collaboration. the tools are also emerging to get that f2f experience with collab tools
Marc Wilkinson
One of the challenges we see is ANY LOCATION still needs to be secure, and off the right performance. Experience disappears if your location is unsuitable
lewis richards
location is only one aspect really, getting flexibility there doesn't address the fact that productivity has been flat for years
Marc Wilkinson
@stroker be interesting to look at the impact of location vs environment on productivity.
Steven Wheeler
In some businesses, location is really important ... Export and import can be deemed to have taken place just by viewing data on a screen. And you should look around on the commuter trains at what people have on their laptops.
lewis richards
@M3Wilkinson certainly would, especially if you honed in on what we mean by productivity? We need as individuals to be able to measure what we do, why I like MS My Analytics, its Fitbit for Office
Dan Hushon
Be interesting if we had an overlay for our "conference calls" that enabled each employee to rate the call, participants, and outcome.... would be interesting data
Marc Wilkinson
@danhushon would be great if in addition to ratings, if we captured sentiment, actions and self-minuted the meeting
Jerry Overton
What is the most effective strategy for training the digital workforce?
Marc Wilkinson
talking to a global client yesterday, they want AR/VR/MR to enable more compelling (and remote) training environments
lewis richards
coming on the @lefep 21st Century Human Upgrade Programme obviously!! ;)
Arin Dey
Enterprises will need to attract and retain digital talent but also create a culture in which employees, on-demand workers and robots can work effectively together.
Maria Pardee
from a tools standpoint, it is simply downloading and using. from a professional collaboration point, it is a realization and practice of being reachable and approachable in a digital forum
Jerry Overton
@stroker seriously, tho, care to share some highlights of the program?
Maria Pardee
we do need to change the "traditional" work patterns to adopt/adapt to the digital economy
Ngoc Do
inject microchips into brain :)
lewis richards
We take people on a serious exploration of what is means to be human surrounded by the digital world, modules look at sensing, brand, tool, amplyifing productivity, collaboration, leadership and wellness
Jerry Overton
@MariaPardee i'd like to see your idea extended to something like digital spaces where people can learn and trade new skills-- something focused on small projects and community engagement
lewis richards
have a look at our 'Executive Upgrade required' paper https://d1xjoskxl9g0...
Enes Yilmazer
I think training the workforce by means of theoretical material (presentations, videos etc.) is not enough anymore when it comes to digital technologies. "Learning by doing it" matters the most
Susan L. Smoter
Some place where we can not only talk about, kick the tires internally, but expose to real customers for input
Dan Hushon
@stroker is there a new element on our business card: "how to best collaborate with me?" "what I'm known for?"
lewis richards
@DanHushon i've got an NFC implant in my hand now that's got my Twitter contact details on it and my business card ;)
Jerry Overton
right, or swallow a nano bot..."wake up, it's time for your quantum computing training pill..."
lewis richards
@DanHushon Just tap to connect ;)
Jerry Overton
@stroker that's kinda scary, actually. does it hurt? how hard is it to take out?
GayathriDevi SureshBabu
Include Webinars, anyone can share their experience and whoever wishes could gain knowledge....
lewis richards
didn't hurt that much, just like getting a quick injection, mines from a company called Dangerous Things
Dan Hushon
extraction is just like TV/Movies... little scalpel incision - push the dermis
