We’re excited to showcase the first in a series of exclusive speaker videos from Compute Midwest, one of our biggest tech events of the year!
Today you’ll hear from Dan Levin, Chief Operating Officer of Box and his thoughts on some fundamental shifts happening in technology & how they’ll shape the future.
“I want to talk about the future and why you guys should be pumped to be doing what you’re doing and be here, meeting all of these amazing people”
The Post-PC Era
Levin described 2 fundamental changes happening in technology as a result of the Post-PC era. “The change that’s going on in our world and our business is extraordinary,” he said.
We’ve moved from an era of homogeneity to heterogeneity. In the Post-PC era, the focus isn’t on hardware & operating systems…it’s all about applications.
“You run your life by application, not by platform”
The change in mobility is going to drive a new definition of a “knowledge worker“. Levin says that every industry will also be redefined, because the Post-PC era will create 1.3 billion knowledge workers in the next 5 years.
“Right now we’re in an exploding phase these new technologies are creating untold opportunities for all of us to take advantage of…”
