The COVID-19 outbreak and the need to address rapidly evolving market requirements are creating a sense of urgency for organizations to enable agile team collaboration. This is particularly relevant where the ‘rubber meets the road’ i.e. frontline workers and mobile and remote employees. However, the market for communications and collaboration has grown increasingly fragmented and IT and LOB decision-makers are faced with a myriad of options with overlapping capabilities and unrestrained use of consumer-grade communication tools.
The reality is that flexibility in the workplace without the right technology can lead to a fragmented collaboration landscape, resulting in limited productivity gains. Furthermore, such a situation lends itself to less than adequate security practices, which can place not only the sensitive data at risk buy also expose the organization to global regulatory and privacy risks. Whether they realize it or not, many organizations are playing with fire because they aren’t taking a comprehensive approach with their business communications and collaboration technology strategy.
In this webinar we share key data points from our most recent Voice of the Enterprise, Workforce Productivity and Collaboration: Work Execution Goals and Challenges showing how the market for business communications is evolving and guidelines that can help IT and LOB decision-makers address the communication and collaboration requirements of a distributed workforce.Speakers
