Digital Workplace - Everything you need to know
A digital workplace is basically a virtualized form of the traditional physical workplace, in which people execute their work tasks, and communicate and collaborate through a combination of digital, network and cloud applications.
A digital workplace can be built in different ways. It can be as simple as email, an online meeting application, cloud storage and perhaps instant messaging and knowledge-sharing via a social media application. It all depends on the organization’s needs and what kind of work is performed. Normally, a digital workplace constitutes a mixture of desktop, collaboration, communication, meeting, messaging, security, management, analytics and storage applications. Deployed successfully a digital workplace will boost an organization’s flexibility and performance, and ultimately its competence, innovation, cohesion and profitability.
Many put an equal sign between the digital workplace and the intranet. It’s not the same thing, but an intranet comprises many of the digital workplace’s functions. If it’s integrated with all the tools the organization use on a daily basis it will more or less constitute the entire digital workplace.
