CIO Peer Forum 2019, Day 2: Track speaker
The Modern Workspace
Henry Ford once said “you can have any color you want so long as it is black”. For many years end user computing was based upon standardization, with little flexibility or variability permitted for the user. IT organizations were proud to offer any PC, as long as they chose it; but in an age where productivity and retention are tied to user experience, that point of view is no longer relevant.
During this session we will discuss the transformation to a new kind of work environment. Understanding what the modern workspace is really about, and why we must go down this path, is critically important to the success of any organization and the attraction and retention of employees in a competitive market for people. This topic is not only strategic, it is one that needs to be discussed in the boardroom and at executive tables.
Key executive issues including the demographics of the workforce, the physical workplace required for a multitude of tasks, and the role that technology plays will be discussed in the context of mobility, collaboration, application delivery, security and data access. We will consider ideas and options for organizations to consider as they plan, implement and manage the modern workspaces for today and tomorrow.
