Business software – yesterday, today & tomorrow

“The most important, and indeed the truly unique, contribution of management in the 20th Century was the fifty-fold increase in the productivity of the MANUAL WORKER in manufacturing. The most important contribution management needs to make in the 21st Century is similarly to increase the productivity of KNOWLEDGE WORK and the KNOWLEDGE WORKER.”

Peter Drucker

Yesterday’s business software focused on capturing data and reporting it upwards.

Today’s business software captures knowledge, data, sentiment and actions and plays it back, predominately upwards, but also sideways and downwards in an organization. It does it in real time and is cognizant of relationships beyond the organizational chart.

We are interested in tomorrow’s business software that will continue to evolve beyond what today’s software offers in striving for improvements in knowledge worker effectiveness.
