The term digital workplace is a popular and frequently used term in the buzzword jungle of industry 4.0 and digitalization marketing. On closer inspection, however, the digital workplace is anything but a buzzword. However, what exactly is behind this term and above all, how can the digital workplace become a lived reality in everyday business life? We will answer these questions in the following text.
What is a digital workplace?
A digital workstation is basically a digital, central work platform that makes tools, services and information available from anywhere. This can be an extension of the intranet or a different type of web portal by offering the above-mentioned means for use. The digital workstation enables collaborative work, the targeted exchange of information as well as the linking with other company applications, such as ERP or CRM systems. The principle of the digital workplace is to integrate and merge data from all software systems used in a company on a single platform. This simplifies and promotes collaboration and the exchange of knowledge between employees across locations and national borders. The result is a huge digital knowledge repository that delivers the right information to the right employee at the right time and in the right place, so that the colleague can do his or her job successfully, quickly and efficiently.
Free flow of information for agility and dynamics
The digital workplace is characterized by a free flow of information. This brings with it great agility and innovative strength. As a result, companies that make digital workstations available to their employees work much more efficiently and dynamically. The employees’ motivation and satisfaction increase because they receive all the information they need exactly when they need it.

Experiential knowledge gained during the process can be immediately documented and made available to other colleagues. An integrated role concept can be used to define access rights and approval processes. Via open and flexible interfaces, exchange with other systems, such as CRM and ERP as well as databases, is child’s play.
