The New Digital Workplace Is Contextual
The workplace of the future will be intelligent and dynamic, enabling new levels of productivity and ensuring that workers get the right data at the right time, with the right levels of access and security. Applications in the workplace, including those delivering workplace services, are becoming smarter and adopting new capabilities at a remarkable rate. New trends are creating a software-defined workplace platform where data is automatically filtered and promoted, and where users get a more contextual and productive experience than ever before.
THE HYPER-PRODUCTIVE DIGITAL WORKPLACE
The nature of work is changing, and workplace services need to change, too. Employees need the right information at the right time, to make better business decisions, to be as productive as possible, and to foster lower costs and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
To achieve these goals, today’s workplace is already increasingly becoming data-driven. But IT systems need to become more responsive and contextual, as well. It is this contextual data that helps organizations make smarter decisions in everyday situations.
The shift to modern platform architectures and inexpensive computing resources makes it possible to go beyond producing and storing large volumes of data to adding the necessary context and meaning. Richer collaboration tools and approaches are also needed to support both knowledge communities and collaboration across an enterprise’s boundaries. Today’s workplace is an outside-in experience, one that includes not only coworkers, but also partners, contractors, suppliers and customers.
To create tomorrow’s hyper-productive digital workplace, organizations should focus on five pillars today: outside-in collaboration, consumer experience, automation, agile hybrid cloud platform, analytics-enhanced data and applications. Together, these five pillars can enable significant changes in both employees and the enterprise, delivering new models of experience and collaboration, empowering information sharing and dramatically raising productivity.
