We founded the Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance (DWEA) back in 2021 to address a very specific problem – helping organizations make sense of all the conflicting information about what a “digital workspace” actually is, and the strategic impact it can have on their org. To do this, we created a non-profit consortium of like-minded technology providers who are all dedicated to providing vendor-neutral resources to help organizations develop their digital workspace strategies.
In the past year, the DWEA has released our initial white paper – “Evaluating the Digital Workspace Ecosystem” (download available here) – which provides an actionable guide for reviewing and evaluating which digital workspace technologies make sense for your organization. And earlier this year we pulled together an all-star list of end-users to share their real-life stories of how they developed and executed their digital workspace strategies. All of those sessions from our inaugural Digital Workspace Summit are available on-demand here.
As you can see, the DWEA aims to keep it’s content focused on providing resources that can actually help you develop a digital workspace strategy that fits the specific needs of your organization. But a key part of providing the most useful tools to help people hone their strategies is identifying where organizations are in their digital workspace journeys today. Which is why we’re excited to launch our first bi-annual “State of the Digital Workspace” survey – which we’d like to invite you to complete before Wednesday, July 27th.
The survey takes roughly 7 minutes to complete, and as a thank you for participating and adding your voice to the survey, we will send you a free copy of the final report once it is completed in August. Also, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of five $100 (or local currency equivalent) gift cards. And if you are not able to accept a gift card, the DWEA will make a $100 donation to the non-profit of your choice instead.
You may be wondering whether or not this is worth your time, and if you’ll gain any real insights from the data that we’ll be providing in our final report. As of 7/19, over 2,000 IT professionals have completed the survey, making this one of the digital workspace industry’s largest surveys to date (and we expect to hit over 3,000 responses by the time we close the survey next week). This is going to be an incredibly valuable dataset that will give you a solid picture of where your peers and other organizations are at in their digital workspace journey today.
We look forward to sharing the results of this survey with you all in August – and to be the first to receive the results, please go and complete the survey here today!
