Atlantis: What you can expect of the Modern Workspace in 2016


I truly love IT. With so many things happening in this incredible space it’s not always easy to see the bigger picture. I hope you find my view on what’s going to happen in the Modern Workspace and its reality in 2016 valuable and cuts through the hype in with a small investment of time.

User Experience Is King

You, me and our customers – we – are KING in the modern workspace. The business consumer is leading and directs the functionality of the workspace in the corporate environment. Social collaboration solutions, unified communications, smart content sharing applications and mobile apps are the new norm in the enterprise. Machine-to-Machine communication, connected sensors, better insights via analytics and IT self-service will boost productivity. The old world where IT owns the device, where IT leads and dictates, where security above User Experience is going away. The workspace is where e-mail and document management are the only real collaboration platforms and where work will no longer be a place.  In the modern workspace, user experience is KING and productivity and flexibility is QUEEN.

Diversity Is the New Normal

We work anytime, on any device, anywhere possible and at any hour. “Work isn’t a place it’s something you do.” Most business consumers now have three or four different devices such as a laptop, tablet, mobile and even wearable devices. We are productive, informed or notified on different devices with different applications and different connections to applications, data sources or machines makes perfect sense in today’s modern world. Device, OS and application diversity is ordinary – entropy is happening. With platforms like Indiegogo, Kickstarter with new and yet to discover devices, IT needs to get used to the diverse world of the business consumer and our modern workspace. Watch for an aggregated workspace – combining SaaS/Web, Mobile, Windows.  Data in a dynamic secure interface is an important asset in the modern workspace. It delivers applications and data in a simple and secure fashion to the business consumer. The modern workspace is the engine of the digital workplace for today’s workforce.
