Support More Remote Workers Without More IT Complexity
According to the PEW Research center, before the Covid 19 pandemic 7% of the US workforce would work form home on a regular basis. That number has increased to 64%. Remote working was already a growing trend but its adoption has been accelerated due to the global health crisis. With large number of people working from home, organizations need to reexamine their IT environment. There is a growing need for companies to be able to provide a scalable, secure and safe remote working environment to employees.
At the same time the budgets available to IT departments is shrinking. IDC predicts a 5.1% drop in IT spending in the year 2020, while Gartner says that global IT spending will drop by 8%. This creates a challenge for IT teams that have to cater to unprecedented remote working demands with limited resources.
