The approach to modern workplaces is rapidly evolving. The organisations that begin thinking strategically about how they respond to digital transformation will be best placed to capitalize on the opportunities this presents. Information Age explores how the workplace has evolved over the last two decades.
Employees using technology in disruptive ways is driving the notion of ‘digital business’ – an important part of the ‘digital transformation economy’ – in which new business designs are being created that blur the digital and physical worlds. Business models, markets and entire organisations are being transformed in the process.
Making sense of this constant change, and defining how a business can capitalize on the opportunities it presents is enormously challenging. Employees’ expectations are changing too; adept with advanced consumer technology, they now expect to work in a more flexible, collaborative way, and will therefore benefit from an enterprise IT environment that provides a comparable experience.
A thorough digital transformation strategy has therefore become essential, but many businesses remain unsure about how to incorporate and manage all that the digital world can offer.
