Driving Towards Digital Centralization in the Modern Workplace 

Digital centralization is becoming a popular term to describe the rising trend of bringing technology into a single-lane experience as a holistic-styled approach to living in the fourth industrial revolution.

The masses want to have a seamlessly connected experience whether it be online or through connected devices. This allows people to reduce the quantity of technology and software they use or devices they carry. It’s the concept of pulling disparate systems into one destination where they can be centrally managed.

The Experience of Digital Centralization at Home and Work

“Alexa, I’m leaving,” I say as I grab my keys and begin to head out the door. The lights automatically go down, and soft music starts for my dog—so he doesn’t feel lonely while I’m gone. When I get to my car, it’s already warm inside because I auto started it from my phone and the vehicle detected cold weather. On my way to work, I take a different route because the GPS on my phone directed me around heavy traffic.

I get to work, sit down at my desk, and start my day. The experience of centralizing the technology or software that I use shouldn’t stop. I open my laptop and log in to a digital workplace. It includes internal announcements and a calendar, tasks for the day, messages from colleagues, my Outlook emails, applications like Salesforce, the list goes on… and the connectivity doesn’t stop.  The digital workplace stays with me while I attend meetings in the afternoon. After my first meeting, I check my phone and see that a milestone has been completed on my latest project and two new tasks have been added by my teammates in the UK.

As an employee, I’m happy because my experience transitioning from my personal life to my work life is seamless. I’m greeted with a consistent ease of access to what I use most in my day-to-day whether it be my experience using personal technology resources or the experience of the abundance of applications impacting my productivity at work.
