How have business priorities changed since the onset of the pandemic?
For many organizations, cloud transformation was already on the cards well ahead of the pandemic. Thankfully, that was at least one arena in which priorities did not have to be completely realigned. As a whole, however, corporations of all sizes have had to move from a mentality that says, “If it isn’t broke, why fix it?” to one that emphasizes digital transformation and the overall streamlining of IT processes.
CIOs who may have formerly thought about security in terms of a closed, in-office environment must now pivot to thinking about how they will secure their employees and meet data privacy and compliance requirements in an open environment. They’ll have to ensure that employees have access to devices and standardized software that meet security and privacy requirements, that individual work-from-home setups are secured, and that encrypted communications can be filtered from any network employees happen to connect back into the corporate digital infrastructure.
While we acknowledge and respect the scope of the challenges organizations now face, the good news is this: COVID-19 has made us all scrappier, more creative, and more adaptable. We believe that only positive change lays ahead for remote work and digital transformation – and we’re here to support you on that journey, no matter what it looks like.
