The Digital Workplace defined

There is a lot of discussion at the moment about the evolution of work and the “Digital Workplace”.

So what is a “Digital Workplace” ?

In this authors opinion;-

The digital workplace is the IT devices and services that deliver the business capability (applications) to the end user.

It can be broken down further to sets of services or a component model, but still dear reader, it can be as simple as that. Three components are the key

  1. The Business capability – i.e applications;
  2. The device; and
  3. The user.

In future posts I’ll be discussing some of the critical elements in support of a effective, scale-able and secure digital workplace, more later.

Thanks for reading.
