Digital Workplace Transformation Live - A Virtual Conference

The Largest Premier Gathering of Digital Transformation Industry Leaders & Executives sharing key solutions to current & future challenges

Gearing productive and collaborative virtual workplace of today and tomorrow

Definition of a successful enterprise has changed significantly from the time virtual workplace has become the “New normal”. Digitalization of the workplace to make the workforce remote whilst keeping employees engaged, foster collaboration, innovation, maintain processes risk free, less cumbersome and deliver superior customer experience is pushing digital transformation leaders across the globe to develop a new roadmap of strategies ensuring workplaces are not only modern but also intelligent.

The global digital workplace market size reached USD 19.46 Billion in 2020 and is expected to register a CAGR of 21.3% and reach USD 90.52 Billion in 2028.

However, lack of interpersonal communication post-implementation of digital workplace is expected to hamper growth of the global digital workplace market to a certain extent over the forecast period.
