Best in Future of Connectedness

THE FUTURE OF CONNECTEDNESS FRAMEWORK

Connectivity is the common denominator in how people, things and processes interact. For consumers and organizations, increased reliance on digital engagement requires ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity. But, as digital interactions continue to increase, it is clear that connectivity is not yet seamless or pervasive.

Organizations will need to address this unevenness in connectivity across different environments and locations as employees and consumers increasingly expect digital experiences supported by ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity.

BEST IN FUTURE OF CONNECTEDNESS

This award recognizes the organization that is able to rethink the way people, things, processes and applications connect to enable the seamless flow of data and drive business outcomes. It is a fundamental shift in the definition of strategies to create, consume and collaborate around the data driven in the enterprise ecosystem. It is an enterprise-wide approach that fosters human-machine collaboration, enables new skills and worker experiences, and supports an intelligent and dynamic environment unbounded by time or physical space. The transformation of connectedness is fundamental to realizing sustainable and scalable digital transformation. As human workers operate side by side with “digital workers”, data delivered at the right time in the right place enables human workers to focus on higher-value activities.
