Why FOMO Can Help Promote IT Adoption

The best IT tools in the world aren't worth very much if users don't implement them. That's why adoption is an essential consideration for organizations deploying digital workspace and collaboration solutions. At the CDW Enabling the Workforce SummIT, we talked to IT leaders from across the country in a variety of industries about how they approach this important challenge. One IT leader explained that establishing a successful small deployment with influential users can excite other workers about new tools. The fear of missing out — or FOMO — may be a useful force to drive adoption. Visit our CDW Enabling the Workforce SummIT landing page to view more articles and videos from the event.
