As LumApps has joined the Microsoft world of digital solutions, attending one of their year’s biggest events was a given. So the LumApps team headed to Microsoft Future Decoded in London, October 1-2, 2019 – where Artificial Intelligence took center stage.
Aligning and exchanging with Microsoft

As a Microsoft ISV partner, LumApps proudly hosted two theater presentations during Microsoft’s flagship UK event, so LumApps members from our US and EMEA offices joined in London to meet with partners, and exchange with IT professionals and decision makers about our complementary LumApps solutions. Our team heard from industry experts about how to leverage the latest technology trends, both now and in the future.
Future Decoded was also the perfect place for LumApps to reaffirm our alignment with Microsoft values. Microsoft’s mission is to empower people and organizations, building successful solutions that lead to lasting social impact. This is an ideal match for LumApps’ own mission: to provide the best employee experience, so people feel that they belong and have a purpose.
This year’s hot topic: Artificial Intelligence
Each year yields a star theme and this edition of Future Decoded had Artificial Intelligence on everyone’s lips… The main question being: are we ready for AI at scale? Let LumApps offer a short digest of the session: “AI: From Experimentation to Implementation”.
AI is for all
According to Microsoft experts, AI is already here: 56% of UK organizations use it in their work processes. Industry leaders such as Boots, NHS and WeWalk gave testimonials about their AI usages, whether it’s how to move beyond experimenting into implementation, or how to create a culture of participation so that AI works for everyone.
Among the use cases presented: AI can help to automatize marketing actions to increase revenue, or help ease the administrative burden of employees to favor more human interaction, or help alert for danger. The prospective uses are infinite.
Why companies should consider AI
Artificial Intelligence is a clear industry advantage. Just in case businesses are still hesitating on the road to AI transformation, here are the main reasons AI is the future of work.
- AI creates a competitive advantage: Accelerating AI will give businesses a competitive edge. One of the largest surveys worldwide about AI (100 organizations, 4000 employees) revealed a 11.5% productivity gap between organizations using AI at scale versus those who don’t.
- Deploying AI makes for a climate-stable future: AI will not only help to prepare but also to build a better future. According to Dr. Lucas Joppa, AI could result in a 4% drop in carbon emissions, while also boosting a 4% increase in GDP in the world.
- AI is an opportunity for transformation: Deciders and IT leaders must embrace the change in order to better serve not only their business but their people, because “Transformation is about people.” AI leads to employee engagement, leading to organizations’ success.
LumApps and AI
So where does that leave us? LumApps aligns with Microsoft’s product roadmap and clearly foresees AI in the future of work. It is part of LumApps’ vision to integrate Artificial Intelligence into our solutions, so that businesses can scale comfortably with LumApps, while providing the best employee experience possible.
