The modern workplace is evolving extremely rapidly, with distributed teams, new business models and complex security issues. Creating sustainable business value requires a much broader approach between technology, operations, culture and employee experience. The right digital tools connect and support workers, wherever they are, to encourage productivity, commitment and collaboration. An intelligent and efficient operating system, mission-critical enterprise-level security tools and perfectly integrated productivity applications in the workplace provide most of the functions and processes that small and medium-sized businesses need to support their departments and key users, covering human resources, Employee Self Service, Customer Relationship Management and corporate departments such as Management, Finance and Marketing.
“By 2020, the greatest source of competitive advantage for 30% of organizations will come from the workforce’s ability to creatively exploit digital technologies.” [How to Market and Sell Digital Workplace Solutions – Gartner, Craig Roth, Feb. 23, 2018]

Azure Information Protection
Azure Information Protection (sometimes referred to as AIP) is a cloud-based solution that helps an organization to classify and optionally, protect its documents and emails by applying labels. Labels can be applied automatically by administrators who define rules and conditions, manually by users, or a combination where users are given recommendations. Azure Rights Management technology (often abbreviated to Azure RMS) is used for protection. This technology is integrated into other Microsoft cloud services and applications, such as Office 365 and Azure Active Directory. The service can also be used with own line-of-business applications and data protection solutions from software vendors locally or in the cloud.This security technology uses encryption, identity and authorization policies. Like labels, protection applied through Rights Management remains associated with documents and emails regardless of location: inside or outside the organization, on networks, file servers or applications. This information protection solution helps control your data, even when shared with other people.
