HOW THE LAUNCH OF MICROSOFT VIVA WILL BOOST THE DIGITAL WORKPLACE MARKET
Numerous organizations currently have a digital workplace dependent on Microsoft 365, and an intranet dependent on SharePoint, Powell Software, and Valo etc. Unfortunately, there is a lack of adoption of intranet portals. They use Teams for continuous correspondence and joint efforts. Before COVID-19, very few people were aware of the digital workplace industry. Eventually, this pandemic changed the working principles and people started working remotely. Large companies like Facebook, Powell Software, and Unily have proactively started their digital workplace and recently the Microsoft Viva announcement has granted more exposure to it.
Microsoft Viva will be a mainstream option to add to that channel to blend various digital workplaces such as Workplace by Facebook, Unily, Valo, Powell Software and Shortpoint. Now, it is necessary for every company to make a digital presence as it has been an industrial standard. In this article, we will look at how these digital workplaces will leverage Microsoft Viva and get benefits.

HOW MICROSOFT VIVA IS BOOSTING DIGITAL WORKPLACE
Microsoft Viva is Microsoft's new push for assisting organizations with digital workplace and a major wager on this better approach for life turning into the standard. It's intended to go about as a gateway for the two representatives and organizations to explore the intricacies of remote working. Microsoft has launched Viva, with parts rolling out all through 2021.
It looks like Viva, along with Shortpoint, Powell Software, Unily and other digital workplaces is going to be a revolution in digital workplace industry. Microsoft Viva will complement Workplace by Facebook and Shortpoint solutions to work remotely and streamline their processes.
The CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, said that “we have participated in the largest, at scale, remote work experiment the world has seen”. He also mentioned that during the global pandemic of COVID-19 where the life style of people has changed and they have started working from home with better productivity. Nadella says that when the world recovers this pandemic then at the end of the day productivity will be checked no matter where, when and how the work is done.
GOES BEYOND DIGITAL INDUSTRY
Microsoft Viva is not only an application, rather it is a platform which provides digital workplace to billions of people in the world and it is helping companies to adjust according to it. It seems as while organizations all in all burn through billions of dollars every year on worker prosperity, Microsoft Viva will help in this new advanced time of work. Intended for this new adaptable and digitized period of work, Microsoft Viva coordinates with Microsoft Teams and works rather like the intranet of old by gathering fundamental pieces of a business into a focal area.
Various global adopters, for example, Accenture, EY, and PwC, will offer counseling and consulting services to assist clients with bringing their current representative experience expectations in line with Microsoft Viva.
Charlotte Yarkoni, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365, said that “As the world of work changes, the next horizon of innovation will come from a focus on creativity, engagement and wellbeing so organizations can build cultures of resilience and ingenuity. Our vision is to deliver a platform for the employee experience that helps organizations create a thriving culture with engaged employees and inspiring leaders. Moreover it is predicted that along with the success of Microsoft Teams and Office 365 in this global pandemic, I am also looking at the huge success of Microsoft Viva as it is the future of remote learning and working. In addition, it will boost the digital workplace industry as I can see its hype and success now. “
