The changing workplace

The nature of work is changing, and with it, workplaces are changing too. Being able to adapt to the new expectations of the workforce and best use technology to empower employees is critical to attract and retain talent.

To provide a modernized workplace, organizations must give employees a seamless experience. This requires you to move away from technology silos. Instead, devices, security, data, collaboration and applications must be integrated to maximize efficiency and productivity for employees, driven by a cloud-first model.

“From our experience with Microsoft, we knew it had the best cloud solution for us with the most complete set of services. And we knew that Avanade was the best partner to work with given its deep insight and skill set with Microsoft technology.”

Patrik Ström CIO, Bonava

Creating the foundation to benefit from a modern workplace

To maximize the benefits of a modern workplace means creating strong foundations. Avanade’s approach to developing this starts with a holistic view of the goals of both IT and the business, through the lens of collaboration, productivity and innovation – with a key focus on the end-user experience.

A key foundational element is Microsoft Windows 10. To realize the full value of Windows 10 requires leaving the traditional forklift migration approach behind. With our holistic approach, we can help you determine how best to pair Windows 10’s evergreen, always up to date model with supporting security and collaboration technologies, plus the power of the cloud.

This combination enables the business to be more agile and makes it possible for employees to work in new and innovative ways. Using our proven industrialized delivery tools, such as Accelerate for Workplace, we can get you there faster with less risk and minimal user disruption – and with our managed services, we can keep you there too.
