The modern workplace has undergone significant change, and traditional ways of communicating and getting work done are no longer effective. These days, working smarter and more effectively is the difference between business wins and losses.
Organizations that do not transform, innovate, and invest in new technologies will get left behind. And C-level executives recognize this reality, too, with two-thirds of CEOs recently surveyed by IDC indicating that digital transformation will be core to their corporate strategies by 2017. Cloud technology is at the heart of digital transformation, allowing businesses to better engage with customers, more seamlessly share and collaborate, more quickly access data to make informed and timely decisions, and integrate platforms together to improve business processes.
This webinar will explore the role of workstream communications and collaboration (WCC) in the age of digital transformation. You'll get answers to top questions, including:
