The majority of organisations recognise the workplace is undergoing radical transformation thanks to digital technologies.
But many are implementing new technology without first understanding how it delivers real value to their employees, who are often left without the training needed to get the most from.
A digital workspace is not a single technology, but the combination of multiple technologies to simplify IT management, whilst delivering a personalised end user experience.
It might be considered an integrated technology framework, designed to deliver and manage app, data and desktop delivery, but must provide a unified, contextual and secure experience for IT and end users, if it is to be successful.
A comprehensive and fully integrated digital workspace will include:
- App and desktop virtualisation
- File sharing and content collaboration
- Unified endpoint management (EMM, MDM, MAM)
- Secure access to SaaS apps/secure browsing
- Single sign-on (SSO)
- Advanced analytics and monitoring
The benefits of digital workspaces
A digital workspace provides simplified and secure IT management, whilst increasing employee flexibility and productivity.
Transitioning from hardware-based infrastructure to cloud-based solutions, offers organisations competitive advantages like the ability for far-flung teams to collaborate more closely, with the right tools available for every project
The digital workspace helps improve productivity metrics through the strategic adoption of emerging technologies. Tools to help colleagues communicate and collaborate better on projects will typically create additional efficiencies throughout existing workflows.
Cloud-based technologies accessed through a web browser allow employees to work from anywhere with an internet connection, with integrated apps and data structures allowing work to proceed unaffected by the limitations of different information systems.
As more processes become integrated within the system, those responsible for managing the IT have access to more data and with the appropriate analytics tools, this data can be used to identify security risks and opportunities for improvement, whilst transforming processes.
With accurate, relevant data it’s possible to make strategic plans for process improvement projects and with greater transparency, managers can control their teams more effectively.
