How to Build the Digital Workplace
Aragon Research helps enterprises choose the digital workplace technologies that support their needs, with the goal of automating manual processes and allowing innovation to thrive.
Blockchain, customer journey mapping, digital business platforms, and workflow and content automation are all emerging areas of the digital workplace that are enabling businesses to become fully digital and customer-focused. We help clients address questions such as:
- Who are the digital work platform providers and how are they evolving?
- How can I measure the ROI of my digital workplace technology investments?
- How can I foster productivity and easier knowledge-sharing in the digital workplace?
Digital Trends Driving the Future of Work
Due to the changing nature of work in a geographically distributed workplace, collaboration is no longer limited to desktops, landline phones, or video conferencing rooms. Wherever people are, mobile devices, cloud services, social networks, and video give them access to each other and help to nullify distance and time barriers.
These communication technologies, combined with more open workspaces and predictive business applications, are leading to a new collaborative workplace.
