WWDC 2012

This week is WWDC ’12. A lot of rumors are floating around, most will be confirmed at tonight’s keynote. Beyond refresh for new macs (which is not very relevant as most banks are still using wintel machines) the highlight will be iOS 6. There will (might) be interesting updates such as new maps or Facebook integration which should please the consumer market. For the productivity angle, I expect a lot of potential with Siri for iPad and, as developer, having access to the Siri API. We already have a couple of projects for Siri and we’re pretty excited at the opportunity to work directly with Siri APIs. Finally an enhanced iCloud should enable developers even more than today.

I won’t list all rumors already published by tech bloggers, what however I reflect on is that our vision of having tablet formats completely replacing desktop computers for senior to mid-level management in the next 3-5 years is becoming more and more reachable. We just need to figure out how to effectively replace the keyboard and the mouse in innovative productivity apps. And that is only a matter of imagination…
