Digital Workplace Foundations
Helping you create and execute a holistic Digital Workplace Strategy
Has your organisation been band-aiding solutions?
Over the past 20 years enterprise technology has consistently been playing catch-up to consumer tech. There is no denying there is an unquestionable link between employee experience and customer experience, but is your user experience as effective as yours Clients? Businesses who ignore their employee’s user experience will fail to attract talent. IT, whose primary metric is end-user satisfaction, must adjust to provide a frictionless consumer-like experience.
Life/work balance, anywhere, anytime, anyone collaboration, the gig economy…all these trends are changing how the enterprise is getting work done. This flexibility has lofty promises of cost containment, efficiency, or risk mitigation but it relies on having a strong foundation of modern device & app management, cloud identities and end-to-end security.
Getting your foundations right is essential to help you coordinate your technology investments to avoid the traps of isolated implementations and disparate ownership.
Organisations investing in a strategy to deliver on the vision of a Digital workplace can help directly improve revenues by increasing productivity and efficiency, and those delivering fully on the vision can help fundamentally change the business to create value in new ways.

The 4 Pillars of Digital Workplace Foundations
Use – collaborate, communicate, connect: The digital workplace is all about the employees’ ability to do their job efficiently and effectively by collaborating, communicating and connecting with others. The goal is to forge productive business relationships within and beyond natural work groups and to enable knowledge sharing across the organisation.
Technology – the digital toolbox: The foundational technology which enables the digital workplace. Each organisation already has a digital workplace toolbox with different tools, but is it working for you? Depending on your industry and business needs, the tools needed to support your digital workplace will vary. The key is to adopt the right tools for your employees to do their jobs.
Control – Governance, Risk and Compliance: The effective use of technology in the digital workplace is underpinned by appropriate controls. This means you must support the digital workplace with the appropriate governance structures and management processes. Information flow and use must also comply with your organisation’s policies and industry regulations.
Business drivers – measurable business value: As with any core initiative, it is essential for business needs to drive the digital workplace. To deliver the necessary benefits, the direction of your organisation should guide the direction of your digital workplace.
