Why Enterprise Application Companies Should Take a Cue From Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant
Enterprise applications are the next frontier in the adoption of natural language interfaces. Unlike consumer tech, e-commerce, and various chatbots where NLP/U is more of a technical novelty, the world of enterprise is a killer ground for natural language interfaces.

It’s the one interface that everyone already knows, and at the same time, it’s the same interface to any supporting system. Think about it…you can easily ask a lawyer, salesman, or marketing professional about any specific topic as long as you can formulate a question in a minimally understandable way.
