VMware: The Impact of The Digital Workforce

Over the summer, Forbes Insights partnered with VMware to survey more than 2,000 executives and frontline employees around the world to get a sense of what helps individuals do their jobs most effectively, hear how digital transformation journeys are progressing, and assess the cultural impact of these changes. From the perspectives of both end users and CIOs, VMware wanted to find out how providing end users with the digital tools to choose how they work best can impact enterprises as a whole. The striking results are presented in the infographic below.

Over the next several months, VMware will be sharing insights into some of the key themes surfacing from the study. Here’s an overview of what the study uncovered:

  • The Digital Workspace – Companies that provide the applications workers want and need, and make them readily accessible anywhere, anytime, and on any device
