As knowledge workers, we have dramatically more apps today than ever before. But research shows that—although these disparate workplace apps are intended to improve productivity—they often have the opposite effect. The sheer quantity of apps we use on a daily basis creates a fragmented, disconnected experience, resulting in communications chaos instead of seamless workflows. A new era of work, powered by the need to more easily collaborate, is emerging today.
