Disruption. Evolution. Transformation. CHANGE. The rapid development of new business practices has accelerated the need for digital transformation across the globe. Companies are now digitizing every aspect of their business at alarming rates: in fact, expanding the share of digitally enabled products in their portfolios has ramped up considerably, from three to seven years.
Indeed, as workforce needs and business priorities continue to shift, industry leaders are collectively focusing on the digital space, seeking out and integrating the latest technologies as they remodel their approach to work. This includes—but is not limited to—the adoption of innovative AI-driven platforms to manage and support a hybrid work environment.
To effectively implement a productive hybrid workplace model, company leadership must rethink and redefine traditional processes and procedures. Organizations that can reframe their perspective will find newer and more efficient ways to share information, promote collaboration and encourage creative thinking among team members through interconnected devices rather than a single physical workplace. The right hybrid work technology will deliver a seamless experience for everyone across the org, from the C-suite to the newest intern.
The key to an effective hybrid work environment is connecting spaces and people. The problem is that clunky, incompatible technology is still the norm. The issue is exacerbated in a hybrid workspace where employees may be using their personal computers and other devices. Many organizations have also created data silos based on the technology tools and data management systems they use. As departments (Facilities, Real Estates, Finance, IT, Administration, and HR) operate differently, they use different technology tools and solutions. Legacy systems and point solutions, in most cases, were not designed to facilitate easy information sharing as each solution stores and manages data differently and is often proprietary to the original vendor.
With the advent of the cloud, it has become possible to centralize data from diverse sources to make it easily accessible from anywhere, including offices, homes, and remote locations. Cloud data solutions help remove the technology barriers to collaboration and offer a ready solution for connecting siloed units. Integrating disparate business units using cloud technologies and cloud data warehouses creates a cohesive ecosystem.

Before the pandemic, some organizations were trying to retain top talent by embracing a more flexible work model. Now, after the pandemic, with most working from home (and in order to stay competitive in a global talent market) organizations that do not invest in a more fulfilling employee experience, failing to meet new demands for autonomy and flexibility at work, will find employees voting with their feet.
With technology enabling people to work anywhere, anytime the digital workspace has been touted as an emerging fourth space. A new, hybrid work environment gives workers more flexibility to handle all of the things that matter in their lives, as well as reducing or eliminating the time lost on commuting.
That, in turn, results not only in more efficient work habits but a better ability to retain talented people. But those benefits only arise if everyone gets the information they need in a timely manner and team members can reliably stay in touch and collaborate without a hitch. That depends on the right kind of technology to keep everyone connected, no matter where they are.
