The 5 MUST-haves for a successful digital workplace

Digital collaboration is supposed to make work easier, right? But if the tools that are supposed to make working together simple don’t actually boost productivity and efficiency, what’s the point?
About 88% of CEOs believe digital technologies are creating high value in operational efficiency. In order to have the operational efficiency, you need the right collaboration tools. These 5 MUST-haves are what you need for the perfect.

The 5 MUST-haves for a successful digital workplace

 

1. Keep employees connected

Employees need the flexibility to choose the most effective way to access business applications wherever they work and whatever device they work on. About 77% of millennials wish to have greater mobile connectivity from their employers. Make sure you are able to give them that option and flexibility.

2. Right tools, right results

People can do amazing things whether they’re in the office, on the road, or on the couch. Give them the power to create, edit, view, and work together in real time, then get ready to be amazed at the results. About 91% of employees believe digital technology can transform the way they work for the better. Make sure you’re empowering your employees with the best tools available.

3. Invest in video collaboration

What do you do when people can’t meet in person, and email or a phone call won’t cut it? You use HD video conferencing, wherever you are, and tie in content sharing to make communication easier, build trust, and do away with errors, that’s what.

4. Choose wisely

You really have to get this right. Even small gaps are big deals. Trends like bring your own device (BYOD), video conferencing, and cloud-based apps may be monster-sized asks for your network that you cannot afford to miss. Be sure you can:

  • Handle business-quality video conferencing
  • Provide private and public cloud access
  • Deal with sophisticated productivity and collaboration apps
  • Manage security across multiple locations and types of devices

5. Secure your digital space

The digital world keeps getting more complex. As it does, security faces more challenges. With trends like cloud computing, social media, and expanding mobility needs, lacking the right protection can leave opportunities for attackers to get in. Strengthen your network security when you:

  • See more with global threat intelligence
  • Stop threats before, during and after an attack
  • Automate security across physical, virtual and cloud to reduce complexity
