There are many definitions of the Digital Workspace, and indeed many different names for it too! You may have heard Digital Workplace, Modern Workplace, Modern and Workspace, and Virtual Workplace to name a few.
But what is it exactly?
For us, the Digital Workspace is a collection of evolving technologies designed around user’s needs that will give them the space and freedom to work securely anywhere and on any device. It optimises their experience and engagement with the tools and resources they need to help them be more effective and productive.
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that the Digital Workspace is not an intranet or an out-of-the-box, “one size fits all” product. Employees increasingly use a variety of tools, services and apps outside of your organisation’s corporate network. Their consumer experience is becoming blurred with their working experience and the Digital Workspace helps to bridge this gap. Through integrating, enhancing or developing a mix of systems, servers and apps in the cloud, the Digital Workspace is the new employee experience evolution, designed for a mobile workforce.
The Digital Workspace can consist of and start with any of the following:

ClearPeople has implemented SharePoint and Sitecore extranets across a wide range of sectors to provide our clients with secure access to their documents.
The size and shape of the Digital Workspace will vary depending on the shape, size and objectives of the organisation, but its key elements should empower:
- Communication and employee engagement
- Information and knowledge sharing
- Productivity – working anywhere at any time
- Business applications – specific self-service tools for employees
The Digital Workspace doesn’t exist without technology. Indeed, technological advancement is the genesis of the whole concept. But too much focus is given to the technology available to build a Digital Workspace, and not enough is given to the people, processes and change management required to make it work the best it can.
