    When it comes to digital technology, users just want it to work so they can do what they need to from any location and on any device. At the same time, those managing lines of business are now responsible for delivering on the promise of digital technology transformation, prioritizing speed and revenue growth while enhancing the customer experience. And finally, IT must satisfy both groups, without compromising ease, availability, or security. That’s why businesses are excited to adopt digital workspace technology. Accessing work emails on mobile devices, using voice over IP for business calls, or tracking company news on social media is second nature to many professionals in today’s world. Many consider this to be a digital workplace, but achieving continued productivity and competitive advantage will require much more significant changes to the way people work. Thanks to the consumerisation of IT and emerging “Internet of Things,” companies are being increasingly challenged to harness data to drive productivity and competitive advantage. The demand for skill development in digital skills is outpacing supply, and the next generation of talent is not necessarily only human – it will be a dream team of humans, data and intelligent software working together. In order to realize productivity results, organizations must focus on using digital workplace technologies to create an intelligent context centered on individuals – effectively tailoring business processes and work to the context of each employee’s industry, role, location, and tasks.
