Meeting the needs of the new workforce
Venue: Four Seasons
Legacy IT and communications systems can be a dangerous trap in which data isn’t properly utilised, systems don’t work together or talk to each other and collaboration is an arduous process. Is the move to cloud the answer?
Embracing cloud based communications represents a fundamental change to any business. It’s not only technology and process that has to change, there also has to be a cultural shift and response to the changing demands of a new workforce. In addition, maintaining business continuity through the transition to cloud is vital.
So, is cloud the route towards the workplace of the future? Can cloud based collaboration truly bring together functions across your business? And how can we take full advantage of the cloud, owning our data, analytics and reporting?
