Below is an email I sent to all Benefitfocus associates
As the Benefitfocus Platform grows and our technology evolves, I find it helpful to always read and study other shifts that are occurring across the Internet. One fascination I have long had is how we all transitioned from AOL, to Yahoo! and then to Google. Even if we did not use those services a lot ourselves, they each define a period of the public Internet.
So what is next? Obviously, apps built on top of platforms such as the iPhone or Android. And after that? Well I read a clever article on that subject and thought you might enjoy it. It gets your brain turning on the subject, which I find to be beneficial as we plan our own strategy.
