Disappearance of the User Interface

Software that can maximize human experience, insight and creativity by automating even the smallest routine tasks is the new frontier. The Holy Grail is to have no user interface at all. Using geo-location technology and Big Data, software can now track people, understand what they’re doing, and push them data-driven alerts and recommendations based on time of day and location. Soon, it will be almost as if software can read people’s minds, delivering what they need in the moment, without having to search and click. We’ll also see continued improvements in the ability to interact with systems via voice. Employees will become exception handlers, interacting with systems only when they need to solve a problem or do something that only a human can do.

No one knows how 2016 will play out, but it’s quite clear that companies that focus on creating value; on maximizing resources, people and time; on pushing the boundaries of innovation; and on using data to run their business smarter will have the agility and flexibility to manage through whatever will come.

This is an exciting time to be in enterprise software. With the cloud and software as a service, we have a new chance to get it right. Buyers are increasingly interested in considering cloud options, and dozens of exciting new companies are reaching scale and giving incumbent vendors a run for their money. In this slideshow, Rob Bernshteyn, CEO, Coupa, has identified six enterprise software trends he expects to see in 2016.
