Join Frank for his talk at the Cebit Global Conference about a new mindset that transforms business. Together with Lena Schiller Claussen he will explore current challenges that will force any business to rethink their organisations, products and processes.
After a very successful start in 2013 with the IBM Connect in Orlando, FL, the CeBIT 2013 in Hannover and very enjoyable press coverage we produced a video of what caused all this noise – the new 4C SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM.

(watch the Livestream of our part at the Opening General Session here)
foresee started the new year with nothing less than the IBM Connect2013 in Orlando, Florida.
We introduced the SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM. This groundbreaking integrated work environment for collaboration and social communication consists of an InteracTable with cutting edge multi touch hardware, a vertical screen (Screenmate), an advanced video conferencing software and an intuitive multi touch application. The result? Instant connection of workforces from anywhere on any device, shared documents, video conferencing, innovative interfaces and instant meetings at the finger tips of collaborating teams. It is based on our Collaboration Room and enhances this solution by integrating community members, activities and content streams and the possibility to create tasks, link information or import content from any third party application.
What really thrilled us was to be part of the Opening General Session and that our solution was First Finalist of the Best of Show CTO Award. Thanks to all of our friends and partners at IBM and GIS for your tremendous support.
As more and more companies today start to talk about the potential of interactive tables we (not without pride) would like to share an article with you from 1999 from the german news magazine “DER SPIEGEL”. Shortly before the Cebit 1999 the cover introduces the new world of the internet but also our first InteracTable. If you read the article (sorry, only german) try to imagine 2012 instead of 1999. You will be amazed how up-to-date all of this still is today.
The little sister of our InteracTable already uses the newest capacitive multitouch hardware.
Now the big brother also gets an update with a brandnew piece of hardware – a 46 inch projective capacitive multitouch display.
There are only 4 prototypes in the world right now. And we got one :)

For this years EXPO REAL, Europe’s largest b2b real estate fair, we realized a Kiosk App for iPad and iPhone that is not only providing a lot of relevant information (thats not the magic) but in a suitable and attractive way. In cooperation with our friends and partners from neuwaerts we included different publications, such as the property market report and logistical profile, and added image slideshows, videos and an intuitive navigation. A special feature are zoomable maps with hotspots that give more information about different real estate and development projects. The magic is that it is all based on printed materials that we just extended with multimedia features. The features are 10 standardized modules that allow to create an App without a lot of programming.
You can download the universal app here.

Frank Sonder, Managing Partner of foresee, will give a talk (22.09.12/10:40) at the d.confestival event in Potsdam, Germany and we show our InteracTable on the related exhibition.
Title: Designing the Future of Collaboration
While the computer has revolutionized individual work and is about to do the same to mobile computing – it forgot almost completely about collaborative work in meetings, conferences and worldwide connected teamwork with InteracTable and IBM Sametime.
by Frank Sonder
An article on forbes.com about the importance of social media for CEOs and their corporate business recalled a research project we did back from 2001 to 2003. From todays point of view the project called “Ambient Agoras – Dynamic information clouds in a hyprid world” was very much about social media and new ways of letting technology be part of our every days live and work. To that extend it holds a crucial role in reshaping corporate buildings – away from single work to promoting communication, serving collaboration and enabling sharing.

At CeBIT 2012 we were invited by IBM to exhibit at their booth. We showed our most recent and game changing project for a large german group.
The collaboration room supports the management when coordinating their worldwide divisions as well as distributed teams cooperating on projects around the globe.
Back in 1999, when we started, or today: the main focus is on USABILITY.
We created a very intuitive and easy to use interface and use the most advanced multitouch hardware as well as our own development kit for multitouch gestures. Last but not least our products InteracTable and ScreenMate provide the suitable work environment to get people involved and actively participating.
But this time there is an even bigger story to tell. And this is IT SECURITY.
The complete backend of our collaboration software works inside the intranet and is fully integrated into the collaboration software of IBM (Sametime).
