On the day of the HANA InnoJam Online finals, Jon caught up with Keytree’s Nic Doodson and Will Powell, fresh in from their UK flight to compete in the finals. Nic and Will tell Jon about their “CEO Vision” project: combining HANA’s capabilities with augmented reality for a different kind of app experience for C-level executives. As the guys discuss, for C-level folks it’s not about HANA but about ease of navigation, speed of information, and yes, some sex appeal.
Nic and Will jokingly compare their solution to the newly-announced Google Glass but also head into a realistic discussion about how next-generation UIs are having impact. The commercial possibilities of Keytree’s application are explored.
Editor’s note: Keytree went on to win the HANA Online InnoJam. The CEO Vision team will be demoing their solution at Sapphire Now Orlando.
