The mystery of Information Worker solved

The mystery of Information Worker solved

Firstly welcome to the Information Worker UK team blog site!

Now we have this new facility, I thought a great place to start would be to talk about what Information Worker (IW) actually is.

It's no secret that at first glance, the phrase 'Information Worker' can leave you a little lost. It did me when I first joined Microsoft and I'm sure it has done with many others!!!

But, I think it’s important to understand what IW is all about - it represents a really innovative and important area of Microsoft and hidden behind the name is a wealth of opportunities for Partners, Customers and End Users alike.

Essentially, an Information Worker is an individual working with information. What Information Worker Solutions aim to do, is to make that individual's work life easier, simpler and more productive using the Microsoft Office system.

From an organisations perspective, it's about helping your workers do their job the best they can.

In nearly every business, regardless of shape or size, people create or work with data. It's actually pretty scary to read the statistics of how much information is created each day and in turn, the volume that we have to deal with. And that's where IW steps in - to rescue people from an avalanche of information!

The solutions that can be built using the Office system have pretty amazing results (and when I say office system it's also important to point out that we are talking about so much more than just desktop publishing tools)! It gets more amazing when you start looking at the extra functionality that the 2007 Microsoft Office system brings!

A really exciting aspect about Information Worker is that there is just so much you could potentially do; so many different solutions can be created! It's just being able to think of them all and I am hoping to see lots of examples on this site!

In a word, IW, to me, means innovation.
