  34. 34. Are you Engaging your Users?“User engagement can enable productivity gains, but that’s not the onlygoal. Effectiveness and empowerment are even more important, allowingstakeholders to make better use of an organization’s information assets.New working styles and operating models can be realized based onstreams of information, actions and communication, instead of siloedsystems and data. This is about engaging users by allowing them toexecute their roles with the organization on their terms”Deloitte, Tech Trends report 2011
