The year 2016 saw organizations worldwide lay the foundation for a people-centric digital workplace, focused on driving collaborative projects that bring employees together, intelligent devices that allow employees to visualize real-time business data to make decisions on the go, contextual feeds to keep employees current and Fluid Mobility experiences for augmented conversations and adaptive team workspaces. In 2016, the mobile-first experience became a “must-have” for organizations looking to provide optimal digital experience to its rapidly growing Millennial workforce.
As we say goodbye to the year 2016 and welcome year 2017, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of KL Software Technologies (KLST) software+services that is helping our clients keep their staff focused and informed while promoting Friction Free Creativity.
“Every Employee is a Digital Employee” – Gartner
To help organizations implement a people-centric workplace focused on collaboration, contextual adaptive conversations, and ubiquitous access to business data on-the-go, KLST launched ConnectORG 3.0, an enterprise Social and Gamification platform built on SharePoint and integrated with Yammer, OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business. ConnectORG allows employees to instantly connect with each other, share thoughts & ideas, follow conversations, receive notifications, contribute on-the-go, and get recognized via badges. ConnectORG also removes the confusion in people’s minds around when to use Yammer vs. Skype vs. OneDrive, providing a seamless mobile-first experience as a SharePoint app or as native iOS/Android/Windows mobile app.

Gartner believes that most organizations in 2017 will shift towards a single mobile app development platform that provides native apps for all the three major operating systems, namely iOS, Android, and Windows. In 2016, the KLST Mobility practice developed a number of hybrid mobile apps for our mid-market and enterprise clients using Angular 2 and Ionic 2 framework.
