Human beings’ place on the top of that food chain is realized by gazillion different factors, but more importantly than the rest, it is realized by our ability of improving at a consistent pace. We say this because the stated ability has already fetched the world some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is purposed around its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to realize all the possibilities for us that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look should be able to reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centerpiece of every horizon. Now, having such a powerful tool run the show did expand our experience in many different directions, but even after reaching so far ahead, this prodigious concept called technology will somehow keep on delivering the right goods. The same has grown to become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming one new HRM-themed development pans out just like we envision, it will only propel that trend towards greater heights over the near future and beyond.
Miro, the visual workspace for innovation, has officially announced the launch of multiple new features and integrations that are all geared towards improving the innovation process to help teams achieve better business outcomes, and do so at a much faster clip. The development, for instance, introduces us to Miro Assist, an AI assistant who marks the next evolution of Miro’s powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities. In simpler terms, Miro Assist uses the context of a board to let users bring breakthrough products to market. These users are able to realize it because of the assistant’s ability to instantly provide valuable insights from research, team retrospectives, or brainstorm sessions. Once they have the relevant insights, companies are able to generate outputs, such as drafting presentations, and next steps action lists to align teams and stakeholders around a set of findings, thus ensuring everyone is pulling in the same direction. Furthermore, Miro Assist can enhance the value of your operations with its tendency to remove any team bias that might be present across the picture, as well as curb the prospect of human error when synthesizing surveys or questionnaires. Complimenting these features is the assistant’s accessibility. You see, it is understood to be available via a new iterative chat-like module, which in turn, is powered through a large language model interface integrated directly into a Miro board. The presence of a large language model is what helps the assistant in answering questions. Anyway, the user can also bank upon Miro Assist to generate new content in both chat format, or visual formats like sticky notes, presentations, images, and more.
Moving on from its AI capabilities, we now must talk about Miro’s new advanced diagramming enhancements and integrations. Already the only collaborative diagramming app, at present, available on the market, the company’s platform will now have unique options to visualize system designs to easily collaborate, visualize complex technical concepts, and drive transformations. On a granular level, these unique options include an integration like Draw.io, which is one of the largest open-source diagramming tools, offering advanced diagramming functionality. Now, with their skill-sets combined, Miro users can securely leverage the best-in-class diagramming capabilities of Draw.io right within Miro itself. By that, we are referring to features like layers, tags, smart containers, auto-layout, rulers, custom guides, and access to more than 50 shape packs. They will even have the means to conduct any import or export of their files.
We referred to how the development puts on the offer a sizeable amount of shape packs, the move is accentuated by Miro’s decision to extend its cloud visualization features and include Salesforce from here onwards. Not just that, the company will also update its existing shape packs which include Google Cloud, Azure, and AWS. The core idea around this is to let teams collaborate more effectively when developing cloud solutions so to make their architectures more suitable for modern demands. Another detail worth a mention regarding Miro’s diagramming framework talks to the way it can also call on the company’s AI assistant for quickly building a sequence diagram and map out an entire process, using only a small descriptive sentence to do the job.
“In modern enterprises work happens across distributed teams and within silos,” said Varun Parmar, Chief Operating Officer at Miro. “Miro is redefining how teams responsible for bringing new products and services to market can get projects from idea to execution. With today’s announcements we continue on our mission to radically simplify the end-to-end innovation process for our customers, offering better ways to communicate, plan, and execute on a shared vision in Miro. In particular, I’m thrilled to show our community how AI will help users on every step in their innovation journey, alleviating the everyday heavy-lifting tasks associated with the product and service development process.”
Rounding up the highlights are Miro’s efforts to improve on product development workflows. Inspired by a vision where teams can plan their work on a single platform and stay connected to their engineering ticketing systems, Miro has notably updated its integration with Azure DevOps. The update empowers users to search, import, and edit work items on Miro in a much simplified, and therefore, faster manner. As for the users of Azure DevOps, they will gain an access to Miro’s connected quarterly planning features, including Planner and Dependencies App.
Founded in 2011, Miro eliminates all limitations of remote work to help remote teams productively lead engaging workshops and meetings, design products, brainstorm ideas, and do a whole lot more. The company’s excellence in what it does can be validated through its clients, which includes over 60 million users and 99% of the Fortune 100 companies. To support such a massive customer base, Miro employs more than 1,800 employees across 12 hubs located around the world.
