People, Space, Technology and User Experience: Synergies that Help Channel Partners Engage Their Workforce
Where, how, and when people do their jobs is being redefined by the exponential growth of technology, information sharing, mobility and collaboration.A lot of businesses are adopting a new open concept work environments. In contrast to traditional workspace of cubicles and high walls, these open environments allow for more natural light, better air quality and windows with outside views.
Research shows people who sit at a desk for more than eight hours a day with no physical activity have a risk of dying that is similar to that of those who smoke. Therefore, new work environments are being developed around ecosystems that utilizes a range of spaces for every work style and responsibility.
Technology is transforming at a record pace, and the workforce is more educated and diverse, so it’s no surprise that IDC’s spending guide indicates that in 2019 over 75 percent of digital transformation spending will be on hardware and services.
With the increase in market demand for workplace modernization, businesses are reevaluating their current and future facilities. Those that don’t seize the opportunity to invest in technology and build employee engagement will miss prospects for growth.
Tech Data’s endpoint solutions strategy focuses on three trends that are driving this opportunity in the U.S. market. They include:
- Workspace transformation
- Anytime, anywhere, digital workforce
- Next-generation collaboration solutions
