CIO WaterCooler Focus – Collaboration & Communications strategy

Event Detail

Collaboration & Communications strategy: Overcoming Obstacles & Realising the Opportunities

Deciding to transform the way employees work is exciting for the business – productivity is on the horizon. For employees, it could mean a happier work-life and for IT, a chance to leverage tech for the good of the business and its people. Ensuring all the stakeholders are on board and contributing to the strategy is important, as new collaboration tools will impact every aspect of the business, from partners to customers and employees. Simplification of complex environments is essential to ensure the investment was worthwhile, which means the unification of platforms while ensuring everyone is bought in. New communication channels could mean new risks, which must be mitigated.

Tech can only go as fast as the business and what if the business is behind the curve? What if employees want to choose their own tools?

In this half-day event, we’ll explore collaboration strategy as well as real-life obstacles, with the objective of unearthing new opportunities to leverage enterprise cloud communications for positive business outcomes.
