MODERN WORKPLACE CONSULTING PRACTICE

Our Modern Workplace consulting practice develops and deploys innovative solutions that improve how organizations communicate and share information both internally and externally.

In the modern workplace, ubiquitous collaboration is enabled through Microsoft’s mobile-first, cloud-first approach. We believe that a truly mobile world means that any device can become your device. This means creating products that work across any platform. This also means turning virtually any machine into a connected device, allowing for better monitoring and communication.

Ubiquitous collaboration is further enabled by the cloud. The cloud shifts us from a world of individual creation to real-time collaboration and collective creation from anywhere. The cloud provides a universal computing fabric to light up experiences and devices, from our data centers to customers’ servers. The cloud powers our devices.

The modern digital workplace will create an environment that promotes ease of use and improved access to information.

Modern Workplace Articles

SharePoint supports two basic User Interfaces (UI) designs; The “Classic” experience, and the “Modern” experience. 

SharePoint brings collaboration and workflow efficiency to organizations everywhere. However, many organizations have not fully leveraged the power of SharePoint.

As government agencies move users to Office 365 and the Cloud, users will be exposed to solutions like OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

We recently came across an excellent article in Forbes called, How to Establish a Culture of Employee Engagement.
