Digitizing the Executive Suite

Digital experiences replace those traditionally associated with paper for today’s Executive Suite. Paper represents one of the last silos of information within enterprises – a place where information resides in a form that’s difficult to capture, store and share. Paper keeps executives at arm’s length from the information that they need to make timely decisions. Digitising the executive suite enables you to turn great ideas into action; draw a picture, record a note, scribble a plan and capture that information in a way that you can share and collaborate with colleagues to bring them to life.

Store data digitally on-premises, hybrid or pure cloud-based storage services so that it can easily be shared and synchronised across devices.
Use digital imaging to capture handwritten notes and drawings and to access information represented by digital tags quickly.
Deploy a common operating system that offers security, directory services and the touch-and-gesture features that underlie the digital workstyle.
Install high-resolution touch screens, for personal or team use, in order to enable rich environments for the display and manipulation of data and information.
Natural Input for applications uses touch, stylus and gesture-based input to take notes and mark up documents digitally, replacing notebooks and whiteboards.
Place audio-visual conferencing systems in executive conference rooms to enable remote meetings and team collaboration around data without printing.
Provide small notebook computers, tablets and smartphones so that people can access their information anywhere, at any time.
Use tablets and smartphones to shift the consumption of information from paper to convenient, portable, connected digital devices.
Three Recommendations
  • Leaders should consider reducing paper to create a more integrated, cost effective and environmentally-friendly decision-making environment.
  • Adopt technology that enables collaboration and sharing of digital data and documents anywhere, anytime on any device, and offers rich touch, gesture and stylus-based input.
  • Organizations should develop a communications strategy that uses digital media rather than paper wherever, and whenever possible.
