Most employees use mobile apps to do their jobs, not to goof off

mobile apps

Mobile enterprise employees really are using their devices for work — well, for the most part. A new survey of more than 650 enterprise employees in the U.S. and Western Europe by analyst firm CCS Insight reveals that productivity apps generally are the most widely used mobile apps at work, with Microsoft’s Office 365 (used by […]

How AI can make Inbox Zero more attainable

Three-Mailboxes

Busy people receive hundreds of emails a day. Conversations that 20 years ago would have been done face-to-face have morphed into loosely coupled emails, instant messages and texts, PowerPoint presentations, Skype meetings and, yes, even a few phone calls. And while electronic communications has made collaboration across global teams possible, it has not always improved […]

Why digital transformation makes sense for every business

It’s time for companies to accept that digital transformation has become both mandatory and inevitable. Going digital won’t turn your business into an instant industry giant, but by embracing the digital revolution, business leaders can create new ways of connecting their people, data and processes to create value for customers. It’s a continuous cycle of […]

The power of storytelling in enterprise IT

Power of Stories

For those road warriors who spend most of their time presenting in front of large groups around the world, the power of the words “let me tell you a story” are very well known. In my experience, however, there’s a subtle, but important difference between telling a story and storytelling. So before I go too […]

Thriving on change through content

Growing up, I was lucky to have had the chance to travel on several occasions. At the age of eleven, I had my first experience leaving the country when my family vacationed in Rome and explored the Greek Isles. In high school, I visited Germany, giving me the opportunity to connect with my family’s roots. […]

Learning from the veterans in our workplace

Over the past 20 years, I have met and worked with some wonderful leaders who come from an armed forces background. On ANZAC day 2017 – an Australian/New Zealand holiday that honours  our soldiers and veterans – I was speaking with a colleague about how these leaders shape  our careers and leadership styles. These humble […]

Places, perception, people and networks: What connects it all?

The world of social media is changing our sense of place, our perception of people and expanding the networks that connect us. At the beginning of February, I had more than 1,426 connections on Linkedin, 726 Twitter followers (small compared to the 6.6 million some people and bots have) and 23 blogs published in 2016 and 4 in 2017. Around 2,000 […]

Digitalization: The formula for success

A recent survey among German, Austrian and Swiss IT decision-makers has shown, for the second year, that companies and industries in these three countries are, to varying degrees, lagging behind in terms of digitalization. This is partly due to an underestimation of the trend’s significance, which of course I and my colleagues at DXC do not share. In addition, there […]

The new face of enterprise collaboration

Just a few weeks ago, Facebook unveiled a cloud-based collaboration platform called “Workplace.” The goal was to challenge Slack, the popular team collaboration tool used in many enterprises, by offering a familiar interface that would make it easier for employees to adopt the app en masse. Not everyone was convinced, however. “Facebook is not seen as […]

Distance, place and time in a connected world

In the movie Toy Story, when Buzz Lightyear joins the team, the whole world of the toys is thrown into turmoil and change. They must find a new balance and way of working, even though their world is ultimately expanded and changed for the better. In this blog, I want to look at some of the remote teams I have worked […]
