As of October 21, 2015, the future is now the past. That was the date that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel through time to in Back to the Future 2. Some things have come true in the 1985 vision of 2015 – drones, for example, or self-lacing sneakers, and some things haven’t yet. Where are our flying cars?
But one thing is certain – companies are doing things with technology today that we couldn’t even imagine thirty years ago. Mobile, social media, big data, and the Internet of Things are making jaw-dropping innovations possible every day. Here are just a few of the amazing things today’s businesses are making possible:
- A recent ComputerWorld article reports that US bank Wells Fargo is providing personalized offers and coupons using beacon technology every time people step into particular stores.
- UK taxi company Addison Lee allows customers to order a cab from their mobile phone from anywhere in the world.
- News Corporation is bringing customized news to you faster than you knew you wanted it.
- UCSF is revolutionizing how doctors communicate with one another, making interactions with patients easier and more effective.
The world is changing in truly extraordinary ways and things that were difficult 30 years ago are instantaneous today. Thanks to mobile, wearable technology, SaaS, big data, and the integrations that connect them, companies are able to harness the digital revolution and create innovations that make all of our lives better. MuleSoft is proud to work with these companies and we’re excited to see what the next 30 years will bring.
