PARIS, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VINT, the trend lab of technology services provider Sogeti, today announced the release of a new publication titled "The Connected Workforce".
"The Connected Workforce" examines how this new era of software and services, sustained by a proliferation of mobile devices has permanently changed the way business is conducted within the Enterprise. This book describes how IT leaders struggle with providing the interface and ease of use provided by consumer social platforms that employees are utilizing while making sure the right levels of security and compliance are maintained.
In addition to describing the importance of a digital transformation, "The Connected Workforce" provides a holistic vision to maximize the use of technology, existing or planned. The book contains a practical roadmap of how to execute your digital transformation from building your vision and addressing basic essentials to the execution of projects that excite and energize both clients and employees alike.
According to "The Connected Workforce" author, and Sogeti Director of Innovation, Erik van Ommeren; "End user adoption and maintaining simplicity are key ingredients for success with any technology. 'The Connected Workforce' demonstrates how organizations can keep the people centric, while not compromising future agility."
Partnership Perspective and Sogeti Commitment
As a valued Microsoft Partner, Sogeti was able to leverage this relationship to gain valuable insight on the topic of digital transformation and what it means for organizations who may want to optimize an existing investment in Microsoft technologies.
Microsoft Vice President of Enterprise Partners Mark Hill, states; "By combining our innovative technology with the proven implementation skills of Sogeti we are able to assist you on your digital transformation journey by providing secure, private, reliable, enterprise grade computing experiences for the new era. This book will give you the rich context necessary to lead the strategic dialog on thriving in the new era and allow you to approach your digital transformation journey with confidence."
Sogeti Worldwide Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Luc-Francois Salvador, believes strongly in the value of the digital transformation. "The first companies to fully grasp the importance and the impact of completely 'going digital' will be the ones that come out ahead. At Sogeti, we are truly committed to help organizations achieve this transformation"
Starting the Transformation
Both Sogeti and Microsoft agree that this is the ideal time for organizations to start planning and implementing a digital transformation strategy.
Microsoft's Mark Hill explains, "This book could not have come at a more timely moment because I truly believe that we are at the brink of a new era. As technology plays an increasingly important role in people's personal lives, it is having a profound effect on their expectations for the use of technology in their work lives-- both as employees and customers."
"The time to start a digital transformation is now. All basic technologies are in place, ready for the taking: mobile, bandwidth, cloud, social technologies, live video solutions, app-stores etc," said van Ommeren.
