Modern Workplace

The physical workplace is changing and in many cases dissolving into more and more remote work. This ads new requirements to the modern workplace where technology is becoming imperative when you wish to manage your team. This track focuses on how to do that effectively; balancing control and democracy in our day to day activities as well as our projects. Managing communication, information and KPI's in a way that fosters close and effective collaboration.

The democratization of marketing technology — citizen developers, citizen integrators, citizen data scientists

In the past marketers had to go through IT for the marketing tools they need. Today marketing technology is widespread, easy to adopt and use. It’s been taken out of the hands of IT, and placed into the hands of practically everyone in the organization.

This keynote explores at the possibilities and challenges that new MarTech - with the introduction of artificial intelligence - is giving marketers.

The modern digital workplace and the remote collaborative team worker – cultural impacts, and how to manage it effectively.

We will lead an interactive session to examine how modern digital workplace tools and work practices can support remote working teams. From examining the benefits of enhanced collaboration and productivity, the ability to help remote and mobile workers feel less isolated, to the potential downsides if the corporate culture is not prepared for this new way of working, and what happens if it is not managed appropriately. Tools and software will be discussed, but this session will not be an in depth look at one particular tool set or software platform. Instead this session will be a workshop format, and attendees will be invited to address a number of topics working together in small groups; feeding back to the overall group, and discussing their experiences and ideas."

Office 365 for 40.000 users: What we’ve learned

Customers, business partners and employees are demanding modern, reliable and easy-to-use Services . The previous Microsoft workplace had hardly changed over the past 10 years, giving us the motivation to take a big step and rollout a completely new workplace generation.

We decided to rollout Office 365 in order to reduce complexity and cost, enhance functionality and prepare users for the increasing digitization. I will share insights on the implementation and discuss our key learnings from the process. One focus of this presentation is how to empower users and keep managers quiet!
