An effective workspace is one that ensures your company can continue operations even in times of crisis. Employees need to be able to work from anywhere without disruptions in their work. Intelligent digital workspaces make this possible by empowering employees to collaborate from any location, on any device.
A digital workspace uses machine learning to streamline and automate workflows. This saves employees from wasting time on repetitive tasks, such as creating reports. As a result, there is an increase in productivity and a reduction in overhead costs. Employees can also enjoy more flexible work by personalizing workflows and creating micro solutions to solve specific problems. An intelligent workspace simplifies managing and securing multiple apps and devices for the IT team as well, including remote data management.
The increasing number of people working remotely is also increasing the risk for compromised accounts. Permissions and privileges can be a tangled mess when dealing with multiple devices in multiple places. A cloud-based intelligent workspace improves security by offering single sign-on for every app and file across devices, thereby minimizing the range of exposure. Additionally, a central interface combined with user behavior analytics gives IT complete visibility into how data and applications are used in the company so they can manage role-based permissions easily.
Workspaces can be helpful for multiple use cases, and their applications grow every day. Below are the most popular uses for workspaces:
