About the evolution to a digital workplace

The digital workplace encompasses all the elements that constitute the digital equivalent of a physical workplace: for meetings, discussions, individual productivity and social interaction. It is much broader than the scope of an intranet, and an intranet cannot somehow ‘grow’ to become a digital workplace.

However, we do see that the traditional intranet is evolving to include many elements such as messaging, video, collaboration and applications, and this paper advocates that what needs to change is the strategic perspective, so that intranets are planned as an integrated component of the Digital Workplace whole.

About DWG research

The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) carries out research into best practice in intranet and portal deployment. Covering the hottest topics in the intranet world, the studies we undertake are rooted in practical examples from among DWG member organisations as well as leading non-member companies. The results of this in-depth research act as a basis for decision-making, a source of ideas, and the basis for rich interactions between participants at DWG meetings. Generally, members are given exclusive access to our findings, although we do from time to time make a report available to non-members for a fee.
