The Digital Workplace: Understand the trends driving the workplace evolution

Digitalisation has changed how employees in your organisation collaborate with each other, support partners, interact with customers, streamline processes, and otherwise build a more effective, more efficient business. Enterprises need a digital workplace strategy to remain competitive and relevant in the current digital climate. To gauge the state of the digital workplace, Dimension Data surveyed 850 business and IT leaders driving technology and organisational change in their companies. They are from organisations with 1,000 or more employees and represent a wide range of industries.
In this session, we will discuss the key findings of the Report in more detail and provide deeper insights into how organisations today are evolving from a traditional office environment to a digital workplace, with examples of what is happening in the workplace right now.

  • BYOA: The natural evolution of Bring Your Own Application Jul 11 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Krista Brown: Principal Practice Director, Dimension Data & Shawn Bass, VP & CTO,VMware
    Once considered a source of risk for companies, the BYOA (Bring Your Own Application) approach to application management has rapidly evolved into a series of great opportunities for the modern digital workplace. BYOA means employees are now closer than ever to customers, and can operate in a more productive and efficient manner, all contributing to a better work-life balance.

    But how do companies strike the right balance between giving their employees the flexibility to manage their own applications, and establishing proper regulations to safeguard and govern BYOA safely and effectively?
    This webinar will cover:
    •The growth of BYOA from a security risk into a tool that can drive employee happiness and boost productivity, ultimately improving bottom line results.
    •How to embrace the versatility of BYOA without compromising on security efficiency.
    •How to ensure compliance by educating your employee.
    •Best practice advice for integrating BYOA process and methodology into your overall digital workplace transformation strategy.
    Join Krista Brown, Principal Practice Director: Mobility, CX and Workplace Productivity at Dimension Data; and Shawn Bass, VP and CTO of VMware End-User Computing, as they examine how BYOA has developed into a real opportunity for business success.
  • Enhancing Client Experiences through the Platform Economy Jul 5 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Yasser Zaki,Technology Strategist at Microsoft, & Peter Menadue, SVP Dimension Data CX & Workplace Productivity
    The platform economy represents a fundamental shift in how companies operate. Organisations that rely on a single product are being rapidly overtaken by those who can almost instantly react to customer demand, generating product or service innovations as and when required. The flexibility and scale offered by a platform economy approach means every senior executive now has to be fluent in the application of data and technology, and the part the cloud plays in underpinning it all.
    But the platform economy isn’t just about doing things faster and more reliably – it’s about using data to accelerate customer interactions and deliver fresh experiences that weren’t previously possible. But how can companies adapt to an environment that embraces experiences and enablement rather than products and cost?
    Join this webinar to understand how the platform economy can underpin the customer experience and unlock new scenarios and markets. Yasser Zaki, Global Partner Technology Strategist at Microsoft; and Peter Menadue, Dimension Data, SVP Microsoft Alliance, CX and Workplace Productivity will explore what the platform economy is, and its potential to transform the client experience, as well as the tools you’ll need to effectively realise the platform economy’s potential.

    Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka are Africa’s first ever pro cycling team to ride in the WorldTour.

Over 60 staff and management accompany these riders who, at certain times in the year, race concurrently in three different countries. This comes with its own logistical and collaboration challenges. In this webinar we hear from Doug Ryder and Scott Gibson about the power that technology holds to address the Team’s business challenges and needs. Dimension Data believes technology has the potential to accelerate the Team’s ambitious 2020 goals.

  • Pop-up shops: more than just a fad? Recorded: Apr 24 2018 30 mins
    Raj Mistry, Group Sales Vertical Director & Joel Gamsu, Senior Client Manager, Dimension Data MEA
    Consumers today are actively looking for an emotional connection with a brand, and, are no longer staying loyal to a single retailer. However, one thing that has not changed is that shopping remains a social activity. To capitalise on this trend, retailers must change their sales strategies to take the brand experience directly to consumers in bite-sized formats or face risking their place in today’s retail world.

    This is where pop-up, or experience stores come into the mix. Global brands such as Nike, Louis Vuitton, and Marie Claire, are actively increasing their investments to support these pop-up shops; and in this webinar, we are going to investigate how even the smallest business can open pop-up stores by focusing on what retailers would need to consider and put in place to ensure stores are successful.

  • Analytics accelerate digital workplace transformation Recorded: Dec 7 2017 22 mins
    Tommy Graham, Sr. Solution Executive, Dimension Data
    According to Dimension Data’s recently released 2017 Digital Workplace Research Report, 58% of organizations surveyed use analytics to benchmark their use of workplace technologies, and a quarter of organizations are investing in analytics tools to monitor and improve the adoption of collaboration tools.

    Understanding the adoption of collaboration tools represents a huge challenge for organizations. Today, UC is viewed in silos with decisions being made on limited information and few paying attention to the overlap. With evolving ways of working, an explosion of UC applications, and the constant pressure to reduce cost while improving productivity, the need for comprehensive BI to support informed decision making has never been more paramount. Join to learn how Dimension Data is using analytics to accelerate digital workplace transformation.
