Content and data are the lifeblood of an organization. The ability to document and exchange ideas easily and securely drives innovation and grows the business.

But data is everywhere, and organizations are finding it difficult to secure their environments while also giving employees the tools they need to be productive with a cohesive employee experience. And this pain has real consequences — a recent study by Panopto found that difficulty accessing information and employees leaving their jobs are related.

With so many technologies and products already in the environment or under consideration, what can an organization do to improve employee experience and help attract and retain talent?

The first step is not only bringing information together and making it accessible across devices and repositories but also facilitating collaboration. Leveraging Citrix Content Collaboration, Citrix Workspace connects data from a variety of places — including network drives and other cloud and on-premises content collaboration platforms — and allows employees to share it based on IT policies. Organizations can do this without needing to migrate data to Workspace.

Next, organizations need to make data work for them. If all data is centralized but employees need to edit, share, and make changes outside of that environment, then the security benefits can be outweighed by a frustrating and unproductive user experience. Citrix Workspace enables employees to co-edit documents as well as view a variety of document types online without having to download viewers or additional programs.

With the Feedback and Approval workflow feature, employees can collaborate on a single document in a centralized and modern UX environment and set due dates and reminders to keep projects on-track in a format that is trackable and visible to all participants. For sensitive information, content can be view-only and even leverage watermarking capabilities. All these features ensure content is dynamic and the latest information is inside Citrix Workspace.

Finally, sharing and editing data is impactful, but it needs to be secure. With Citrix Analytics, companies can proactively monitor and automatically take action on abnormal and risky behavior, such as excessive downloads or accessing information from an unusual place. Citrix Analytics also connects with other products to get a full view of content across connected repositories. This functionality puts organizations in control of their information and enables them to preempt a potential security threat.

And with intelligence capabilities in Citrix Workspace, organizations can streamline content, maintain and share knowledge, and improve employee experience and, in turn, their productivity and performance.
