Tomorrow’s Workplace

Program |TracksSpeakers

Digital Strategy conference trackThursday, 3 November

Most organisations still operate with what could be termed a classic intranet; a platform where content is published and static company information is stored. Despite the massive confusion surrounding the definition, every organisation today has a digital workplace; a plethora of platforms, tools, workflows and services – and the intranet is simply a part of this landscape. The challenge for those managing this landscape are many. Here is just a few:

  • How do you structure, coordinate and present this landscape for the many, often very different user groups so their experience is coherent and relevant to them and their work? And how do you bring and serve it all to an ever more dispersed and mobile workforce?
  • How do you manage the ever growing mountain of content and data? And the demands from the business to instantly be able to find the right content – and turn all the data into meaningful business intelligence that can be acted upon?
  • How do you deal with SaaS and cloud – meaning that it is easier than ever for any employee to bring in their own tools and services – and bring work onto their own devices?
  • And how do you determine what success looks like in this fragmented landscape; how do you set meaningful KPIs that can be measured and reported back to the business?

We unpick and explore these and other related questions and discuss how your role will evolve.
