With this service we unburden the customer by offering a 100% guarantee, extra security and comfort.
What are developments that you think should be taken into account?
Artificial Intelligence (AI). Think of self-driving cars or, for example, Siri on the smartphone. These are examples where AI already plays a role and helps in terms of convenience and user experience. In the future, AI will play an increasingly important role in society. Intelligent software is going to gradually take over more and more tasks from us. For example, Thinkwise has a self-learning user interface. Based on a person's usage, possible customizations are indicated to the user to improve the way they work. This allows that person to optimize their workflow.
Software will become much more important in the coming years and will integrate more and more with the environment. The digital world will be integrated into our physical world as, just like the thermostat in our home. You can control this effortlessly with an app on your phone. Companies that have this under control will survive. IT will become more and more business IT.
