Bringing experiences to life
Bold and innovative, the NEXT Product group is devoted to creating entirely new software and services businesses and platforms. We’re a diverse and specialized team that develops ideas into products, grows products into businesses, and scales businesses with the power to transform the future of software.
What’s next in the world of technology is often driven by a shift in consumer behavior, a new enabling technology, a new platform reaching critical mass, a new interface becoming intuitive, a new distribution channel being found—amplified by the convergence of many of these scenarios. This results in an opportunity for new products and services to capture large value streams that didn’t exist or were previously owned by seemingly impenetrable incumbents.
Beyond the changes in technology resulting from software eating the world and machine learning eating software, we see fundamental changes that impact how technology fits into our lives and how the traditionally siloed digital and physical worlds will further complement each other.
We are excited to be building software and services that take advantage of and accelerate opportunities created in these big shifts:
The computer is no longer a digital extension of the industrial revolution where human command and control drives greater output. Instead, tasks are now proactively and seamlessly completed via automated technology.
Supply & Demand
Sensors and computing at the connected edge enable the real-time tracking and connecting of supply and demand. When we better leverage our resources, we create a future where supply and demand reach perfect balance.
The desktop UX that was made portable will give way to new human-machine interfaces that allow tech to more seamlessly integrate into our lives.
