This year has been like no other. For many organizations, changes to daily and work life have transpired dramatically. The transformation to work from home hasn’t been without its challenges as new processes and technologies were deployed rapidly, often without optimal planning and design.
We used the experiences learned over the last few months of COVID-19 in our presentations to highlight various key matters of consideration of remote workforce enablement including: collaboration, cloud, security, and infrastructure.
Many organizations were unprepared for large-scale remote work. Earlier this year, a Gartner poll stated that 54% of HR leaders indicated that poor technology and/or infrastructure was the biggest barrier to effective remote working in their organization. As we approach the end of 2020, many of us have moved past the point of “if” we will adopt a remote workforce; it’s now the new standard and it’s time to optimize and secure the investments made.
During this timely one day virtual summit, we discussed the critical aspects of remote workforce enablement such as planning, collaboration, security, leveraging current Microsoft assets owned, and infrastructure.
