Hello there, continuing on the topic we discussed in previous post.
This time, let's look onto Microsoft's Information Worker Vision. As you might remember, the Microsoft Center for Information Work team with Russ Burtner, UX Lead Designer, had put together a Productivity Vision back in 2005 for next 5 years.
Long Zheng over his IStartedSomething.com did a great overview of that video... See here: http://www.istartedsomething.com/20070314/microsoft-2010-rtc/
Now, 5 years later, where Microsoft is?
Surprizingly, Microsoft did a lot... Voicemail in Exchange, Unified Communications, Tablet PCs going mainstream... Of course everything here required a lot of direct involvement of Partner network and the results are really interesting...
