Digital transformation has become an essential element of any successful business, requiring creative solutions to stay ahead in the ever-evolving digital landscape. To do this, there must be sustainable digital innovation, as it enables companies to create new products and services, streamlines core operations for efficiency gains, and strengthens customer relationships through improved engagement strategies — all while leveraging data insights and empowering employees.
Hybrid work has now replaced remote work as the new buzz word. Let’s be clear, however. Hybrid in this context represents mobility. Employees are going to be mobile, and the definition of the employee workspace is now changed forever.
Regardless of the industry, all enterprises are looking for strategies to improve their organizations and stay competitive in the market. However, when it comes to technological innovation, there’s one piece in particular that often blocks the way forward: the human element. While computers may still lack the creativity that sets the human mind apart, artificial intelligence (AI) has become an increasingly important part of modern computing, especially when it comes to processing and managing data.
Today, there is an impetus among IT leaders to build stronger digital foundations, enabling their companies to head off future disruptions and secure long-term business success.
New, cloud-based operating models featuring greater speed, agility, and scalability can support the digital transformation enterprises across industries require. By leveraging cutting edge technologies to improve their use of data-driven insights, high-performing organizations can utilize these findings to drive business forward.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “a company’s greatest asset is their employees.” However, they can only be your greatest asset when they have the tools they need to be successful. For this, and many other reasons, many enterprises are offering Apple® products to their employees.
Apple has a product to suit all aspects of your life with a platform that supports apps for your hobbies and entertainment, storage for your memorable photos and videos, and everything in between, including work. If you think about it, Apple® is your ‘digital workplace’ and companies large and small recognize the benefits of extending Apple products across their business and making them available to employees. Your employees desire flexibility and the option to work anytime from anywhere from the devices that they prefer. With freedom of choice, employees have more control over their work experience, resulting in higher job satisfaction and increased productivity. Enterprises report that the majority of their staff members prefer Apple devices.
Technology continues to revolutionize the workplace and enterprises are constantly adapting to ensure employees have the tools they need to succeed. Similarly, IT leaders are also adapting and looking for new ways to stay on top of security, data management and other tasks, while also dealing with the unique complications that come with digital workspaces.
