Analysts to Discuss Latest Digital Workplace Best Practices at Gartner Digital Workplace Summit, September 18-19 2017 in London, U.K.
Digital workplace programs often lose their way, or fail, due to a fragmented approach that prioritizes a few technology "fixes" over business strategy, said Gartner, Inc. To combat this, digital workplace leaders need to employ a framework to ensure their digital workplace initiatives address all of the eight critical components required for a successful implementation.
"The digital workplace promises a more flexible, engaging and intelligent work environment that is able to exploit changing business conditions," said Carol Rozwell, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. "To be successful, a digital workplace can't be built in a vacuum. It must be part of a wider business strategy that seeks to boost employee agility and engagement by developing a more consumerized work environment."
Gartner has identified the eight critical components — "building blocks" — that application leaders need when planning, directing and evolving digital workplace programs (see Figure 1).
