Work: It's not somewhere you go, it's something you do

Today's modern working environment - especially since the onset of Covid-19 - needs to offer an organisation's employees the flexibility of working from home or on the go as well as in the physical workspace. It requires a mind-shift on the culture of the working environment, which is why one of our mottos is that work is no longer something you GO to. It's what you DO. And the rise of the digital workspace means that WHERE you do it is becoming increasingly flexible.

The adoption of new technologies is what’s making this seismic shift in work possible. Combined with the convergence of mobility, cloud, virtualisation, and cyber security technologies, digital workspaces are becoming powerful competitive differentiators in all industries. Why? Because increasingly, organisations are seeking new levels of agility in their processes and service delivery methods. They also want flexibility for their employees - existing as well as those they're hoping to recruit.

A successful digital workplace requires a clear understanding of what information employees need to access, what systems currently hold that information, and whether that information is stored in systems that can be accessed remotely. And if the concept is new to some employees - if they've never worked remotely and are unsure how successfully they'll manage it - it's important to sell the value internally of the transition. A well-designed digital workspace offers benefits such as:

  • Meet the needs of your mobile workforce.
  • Be ready for disruptions with an anytime, anywhere workspace
  • Embrace the cloud with ease
  • Replace traditional VPNs with a zero trust approach

To help you better understand the rise of the digital workspace and how it can benefit your business, we've collaborated with our partner Citrix to develop an eBook on the topic. Beyond the Cubicle: Life in the Digital Workspace will help you understand the important considerations when moving to a digital workspace, what your organisation can achieve, and how to get there.Inde eBook -Beyond the cubicle 3D coverThe eBook covers seven key areas:
