The Digital Workplace Exchange – core themes and components
The Digital Workplace Exchange explores the strategy surrounding people, processes and technology that converge to digitally empower employees and unlock new ways of working in a collaborative, mobile environment.
So what is the digital workplace?
The digital workplace encompasses all of the tools a modern organisation requires to streamline workflows by connecting people, processes and information, unlocking new opportunities for productivity, efficiency, agility, collaboration, communication and cost-effectiveness.
Cloud: The infrastructure that underpins the digital workplace, promoting agility, flexibility and collaboration
Mobility: Enterprise devices and apps that empower employees with business-critical information from any location, on any device, at any time
IoT: Enabling organisations to connect thousands of disparate devices and produce real-time, actionable insights
Digital Collaboration Tools: Bringing together disparate information in a unified, intuitive way to promote employee mobility, enhanced productivity and widespread digital enablement
Advanced Networks and Connectivity: The digital workplace requires a robust network foundation that can connect a disparate, proliferating device ecosystem
But in order to inject fundamental new ways of working that are future-proofed and technology-agnostic, senior IT leaders must look beyond the toolset, to the more intangible issues of mindset and skillset. The Exchange will explore the strategic implications of creating a truly Digital Workplace, with conversations around:
Navigating the IT paradigm shift to transform the department from a cost centre to a key generator of business value
Overseeing effective change management across your organisation to nurture a digital culture
Safeguarding the security of corporate data, while optimising accessibility and not hampering the user experience
Balancing legacy architecture with the ability to remain agile to new technological developments
Introducing technologies that augment employee productivity and meet increasingly consumerised expectations
This invitation-only meeting brings together 60-70 CIOs and Heads of IT responsible for leveraging technologies such as cloud, mobile and IoT to nurture a digitally-enabled enterprise. Across two days packed with idea-sharing and informal networking, attendees are armed with the stimulus they need to drive forward innovation within their respective organisations.
