As digital transformation (DX) and its associated digital technologies become the norm in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), organisations are turning their attention to workplace transformation to future-proof their organisations for the digital era. IDC defines the Future of Work as business transformation focused on the intersection of three key components: talent management, the digital workspace, and the culture that brings digital transformation together.
This IDC presentation discusses the New Zealand versus Australia results from IDC's 2018 Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) (APEJ) Future of Work Survey. This study provides a snapshot view of the current enterprise workspace, work culture, and workforce strategies and priorities in the region. It explores the technologies prioritised, budget allocation trends, as well as challenges and concerns faced by organisations on their Future of Work journey.
Key areas examined in this study, comparing New Zealand and Australian businesses, include:
- Understanding the maturity of ANZ Future of Work transformation strategy maturity
- Work transformation investment priorities and policies around mobility, workplace models, use of emerging technologies, coworking, and enabling new talent and millennials entering into the workforce
- The drivers and influencers of Future Workspace investment and deployment decisions
- The barriers to workspace modernisation and addressing the scarcity of digital skills and expertise in a global digital economy
