Empowering Every Person And Organization To Achieve More
Digital Transformation Is Changing the Way We Work
We are living in a time where technology is driving rapid change in our personal and professional lives. For some of us, this digital transformation is the biggest change we have seen in our lifetime. In 2018, two-thirds of CEOs in the Global 2000 had digital transformation at the heart of their corporate strategy. Digital transformation is changing the way we use technology. It’s changing how we empower our employees, optimize our operations, transform our products, and engage with our customers.
What’s driving this transformation?
There’s a shift away from a traditional model of routine tasks and hierarchical decisions to a new way of operating. It requires every employee to be creative, think critically, and collaborate with others. And harnessing those skills within each employee is becoming critical for businesses to stay competitive and relevant.
For the first time, we are working together with four different generations in the workforce. And by 2020, millennials are projected to make up 50% of the workforce.
The workforce has become increasingly diverse and mobile. Individuals are working across multiple locations and with multiple devices throughout the workday.
Teamwork has become an essential part of getting work done. And organizations are more networked than ever before. This helps us manage the increased flow of information and make smarter business decisions faster using data analytics.
People have new expectations for how we work. They’re looking for physical and digital workspaces that are flexible, agile, and secure. They want them to include all the services they need and feel open so they can easily share, connect, and work together with others.
Modern technology is enabling us to discover and connect to the best expertise available without geographic or physical boundaries. And it allows subject matter experts to scale their knowledge to the broadest extent possible.
Social networks and global connectivity to one another are promoting increased transparency. This is helping people and businesses be more agile and respond quickly to new information and market needs.
And finally, businesses are focused on maintaining an environment that’s safe, secure, and protected against cyber threats.
But at its core, digital transformation is all about people. People are the ones driving all these changes and making this happen, not technology. We need tools to help our people do their best work. We need to empower creativity and ensure security. We need to inspire a new generation of workers entering the workforce. This starts with fostering a culture of work that is inspiring for everyone and empowers every person and organization to achieve more.
The Demand Falls on IT to Deliver the Modern Desktop
To deliver the modern workplace that people are driving with digital transformation, the demand falls on IT. And the demands on IT are incredible. What we need is a cloud-powered solution that enables us to deliver IT in a modern way.
We need to support multiple devices, not just PCs. We want to support employees with mobile phones all the way up to workstations.
We need to support “bring your own devices” and corporate-owned devices. We need to support this in a cloud-managed way with software-as-a-service applications.
We need to drive automation to reduce costs. We need to be proactive in how we respond to changes in the environment so we can take action before problems happen.
And we want to enable users to do all those things in a self-service way so we’re reducing costs. But most importantly, we want to improve the experience for the end users which we serve.
And it ultimately falls on IT to make it happen.
