Fueling Growth in the Digital Workplace- Is Your Network Ready?

Chris King, Systems Engineering Director, Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Co.

The explosion of smartphones, tablets and Internet of Things (IoT) devices is transforming the way we communicate, consume services, and manage our personal lives. The combination of mobile devices and cloud-based apps is also changing the very nature of our work environments, where collaborative open spaces and non-routine schedules are becoming the norm, and the #GenMobile workforce expects to be able to work anytime, anywhere.

Now, organizations are adjusting their physical spaces and technology designs to attract and retain top talent — the influx of Millennials who want an open, modern space within a mobile-friendly environment — and to boost worker productivity. Cornell University reports 33% less attrition rate within companies when they allow their workforce to work wherever they roam.

Join us and learn how to embrace the future of your workplace.



Creating Unique Employee Engagement & Collaboration Experiences on Modern Productivity Cloud Platforms

Jeremy Williams, Collaboration Practice Lead, Rightpoint 

As major software vendors move to the cloud with their productivity and collaboration platforms, the rate of innovation and change in these cloud platforms presents an opportunity and a challenge for organizations. It’s important for organizations to deeply understand what their end user needs are, how to define success with the usage and adoption of these platforms, and how these platforms fit in their technology roadmap. We’ll take a deep look at one cloud platform and how organizations have leveraged this platform to support their employee engagement and digital productivity strategy while at the same time embracing and capitalizing on the nature of rapid change within the platform itself.
