The Digital Workplace Report looks into how organisations are evolving from a traditional office environment to a digital workplace. They surveyed 850 business and IT leaders who are driving changes within their companies around the world.
¼ of businesses predict workspace analytics tools, augmented reality tools, and micro-training will have a role in the office environment within the year.
62% expect virtual advisors to have a place in their companies in the next 2 years. These virtual assistants are bots in applications that use artificial intelligence and machine learning.
⅔ of organisations need support from external partners for workplace technology solutions. ⅓ require significant support, where third-party partners hold a central role.
53% of organisations report that smart meeting rooms that provide workers with access to conferencing technologies are central to significantly improving business processes.
On the list of tech trends important in determining workspace strategy, #1 is “Embracing consumerisation of IT for collaboration and productivity apps.”
IT directors are closely involved in business strategy. They have the most influence in driving workstyle changing in ¼ of surveyed organisations.
The traditional office is not dead. 63% of enterprises indicate that most or all of their employees work in a standard office. This is barely expected to change in the next 2 years.
