5 Digital Workplace Trends You Need To Know

Post-Covid, businesses worldwide have been compelled to change how they operate, and their ecosystem has seen a shift to an online model, accompanied by the transition to remote work.

The benefits of a digital workplace can range from reduced operational costs to improved productivity. Many businesses realized that their capacity to grow revenues and maintain productivity in the digital age depends on their ability to adapt to change.

This blog highlights the 5 digital workplace trends you should be aware of. Let’s begin.

Robotic Process Automation

Automation of routine tasks is a trend gaining momentum and increasing in demand. Robotic process automation is a booming industry and is a technology that mimics human ways of working on software to perform highly repetitive, mundane tasks. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in the use of algorithms to automate various common operational tasks, a trend that is expected to continue. Many organizations have recently moved from physical desktops to virtual technologies for automating tedious tasks.

Examples include-

Credit card applications
Automated upgrades
Bank account opening and closure
Employee onboarding
Disaster recovery

Previously, all of these tasks required a dedicated team effort. A highly automated environment works on various technologies simultaneously to empower your workforce, increase the ROI, and deliver other benefits.

Desktop As A Service (DaaS)

New trends are emerging with the DaaS industry expanding and more suppliers providing the service. In today’s workforce, seasonal workers and contractors are integral to many organizations’ operations. Like full-time workers, these workers also need access to the organization’s technology and applications. They might need it temporarily, but they must have access to the technology.

This is where DaaS fills the gap. Desktop-as-a-Service, or DaaS, is a highly scalable technology that allows businesses to provide simplified access to cloud desktops to their workforce based on their business needs. Businesses can revoke this service when your employment with the company expires, and you no longer need access to your data.

Decentralization

The recent trends indicate that it’s time for less centralization. In today’s decentralized workplaces, future organizations will rely less on a centralized IT team to meet their digital needs. Instead, the most successful companies like Amazon & Google are transitioning to an end-user computing paradigm, allowing employees to access virtual desktops from anywhere globally. There are several benefits to a decentralized workforce. Some of them are-

Time & Cost efficient
Quicker decision-making
Better Emergency-handling and more.

Previously, the IT staff was required to manually install updates and new software programs on each device. However, this has changed with end-user computing, where the new updates are made on a single server but reflected on every desktop.

End-User Protection

With the rise in more targeted and sophisticated cyber attacks, end-user security has become a major concern for years. It is becoming a critical component of a well-designed digital workplace plan. This is not surprising, given that human error is the primary cause of 95% of all data breaches. Hence, the first step is to make users more aware of the potential threats and educate them on security awareness. This has multiple benefits, including threat mitigation, asset protection, uptime, and compliance.

Data and intellectual property often get distributed far and wide with an increase in the number of employees. Implementing a security awareness training program can reduce organizational risk and empower employees to make better decisions.

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) Policy

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) allows employees to use their own devices for work-related purposes. Devices like laptops, mobile phones, and Tablets allow employees to bring their own technology into a digital workplace. This trend has been increasingly incorporated into the IT strategy, allowing employees to remain productive away from their physical workspace, thus, increasing flexibility and increasing efficiency for the enterprise.

Organizations and businesses must adapt to the quickly changing workplace environments and embrace these modern workplace trends. The sooner they start using the emerging technologies, the better edge they will have over their competitors.
