What is Digital Workplace and Why is it Important?



A truly digital workplace brings together a wide range of tools to enable information and collaboration tailored to the role, location and mission of each employee.

It requires looking beyond traditional models of the work environment and instead, thinking about how employees use digital technology to better serve customers and deliver an improved overall experience for both the customer and the end-user. To create a digital workplace, an IT organization brings together people, processes, and technologies to deliver real-time information, data, tools, and services, such as social media, anywhere, anytime, and on any user’s device. Digital workplaces not only make employees more productive but also make companies more flexible by enabling them to choose the right working environment for their employees and customers. Sources: 6
