CO. LAB Digital workspace

Transform your workspace. Empower your workforce

Riyadh, May 13, 2019

Overview

As digital becomes the norm, leaders and industry execs need to re-think legacy IT practices to create a more agile and empowered workforce. In today’s digital age, humans are used to ubiquitous access to connectivity, services and information. Often, their personal technology outstrips that of the organisations for whom they work. Organisations must address this gap in expectation and place humans at the centre of digital strategy, thereby addressing workplace and workforce effectiveness as a priority. 

Join Dell Technologies, VMware and industry peers from across the IT, digital and human services sectors for an evening of discussions on the topic of workplace transformation. We will discuss topics such as “Shadow IT”, a growing momentum as companies try to keep up with users. We’ll also explore issues on how IT leaders can create more flexible and secure user workspaces, as well as how to deliver relevant information to any device, anywhere, anytime.

Already, businesses can see a direct correlation between empowering a productive workforce and the success of business transformation. It’s time for organisations to deliver on the true expectation of the digital workplace.

The way people work has changed. How did you meet that need?
