Presentations from the November 19 conference “Platforms for Collaboration & Productivity.” This conference brought together thought leaders from Stanford University and industry to explore the ways that platforms transform how individuals and organizations access, consume and share data. Platforms drive innovation by uniting previously disparate elements in one system. The emerging platform ecosystem has deep implications for enterprise and academia, for lifelong learning, for the concept of work, and ultimately, for our understanding of the intersections between people and technology.
