In 1965, Gordon E. Moore published an article regarding the growth in the semiconductor industry. His hypothesis was that in every single year, they were able to double the amount of components in every integrated circuit. This theory of exponential growth became known as Moore’s Law, which for years, has been the theme of the technology sector as a whole.

The question is, with all this rapid growth, how can someone keep up with all the new technology? You buy a new phone and in 6 months it’s obsolete! The problem is so bad that not only do people have trouble keeping up with the new technology, they often do not even know all the functionality that is part of their current toolset.

I’m here to help you deal with this challenge. Each week, I’ll highlight jaw dropping videos of new technology that we all have at our fingertips. With the aid of Darren Larkins and Denis Morais, SSI’s CEO and CTO, we will show you how these tools can be used in your current workload.

To get the blood flowing, we’ll start with a mirage of technologies from our friends at Autodesk.

The weekly segments will take a deep dive into the world’s hottest technology and how we can put it to use to differentiate our organizations and become more effective in the tools we’re already using.

Welcome to Thursday’s Port of Innovation. Join the conversation in the comments or on Twitter using the hashtag #TPOI

Disclaimer: SSI is not liable for any productivity loss while you watch the videos. But, we will take credit when you adopt the technology and save your company time and money.

    How true !!

    We were unable to continue ignoring this when AutoCAD v10 was released, in 1990 or so, and it has simply N-mushroomed since then.

    This causes a phenomenal loss of revenue and profitability for most every one of the 2000+ companies that I work with direclty or indirecly, and dangerously weakens the development / subscription connective tissues.
