Exponential Collaborative Technology

Exponential collaborative technology is the future of the enterprise — but what is it?! The short answer is that it’s a vision of what happens when we can apply machine learning to business applications.

Here’s a quick example I gave for the 2017 SAP Finland Innovation Forum:

“Exponential collaborative technology is absolutely the future of the enterprise. Take for example Tesla cars. Each self-driving car, as it goes down the street, is constantly gathering information and driving better. But it’s also sharing that information with all of the other Tesla cars. Tesla has become a massively-parallel learning machine. Imagine if we could apply that to enterprise software! As somebody used our software, it got easier to use, not just for them, but for everybody else using that software. That’s the vision of the future of these new exponential technologies. “
