When Gartner presented the Digital Adoption Solutions (DAS) technology category in May 2019, the focus was solely on how digital adoption supports increased sales productivity.

That has since changed.

By 2025, 70% of organizations will use digital adoption solutions across the entire technology stack to overcome still insufficient application user experiences.” – Gartner

Companies are turning to Digital Adoption Platforms (DAP) to get the most out of their technology investments, addressing a wider range of needs across their organizations.

The latest report, “Improve Employee Usage, Engagement and Productivity With Digital Adoption Solutions,” by Gartner analysts Melissa Hilbert, Stephen Emmott, delves into how digital adoption solutions will transform user experiences over the next few years with practical implementation best practices and recommendations. 

A changing market

As organizations shift to remote work, the dependency on technology has only increased. Employees across all departments are faced with a myriad of software applications to perform their jobs. For employees, these apps are often coupled with minimal instruction, resulting in decreased engagement, productivity, and usage.

With the acceleration of digital transformation and the rise of COVID-19, Gartner has seen an uptick in client inquiries around digital adoption.

What is so noteworthy about these requests is that clients aren’t merely asking, “what are digital adoption solutions?” Instead, they are seeking out ways to implement DAP to get the most out of their technology investments.

DAP is the solution companies are looking for
