How would digitized workplace analytics work? 

Workplace analytics entails the use of battery operated sensors that are installed all around the office. You can deploy them in meeting rooms, near workstations and even collaboration areas. Their purpose is to accumulate data through a complex algorithm and present it to users. You can log into the system directly to view this data; however, because these sensors work with the internet as well, the data can be easily shared and viewed, by employees and consumers, through the cloud.
