Increasing Strain on Infrastructure and Expectations from IT
Most enterprises were in the middle of their digital transformation journey when the pandemic hit. Without a robust digital backbone, it is impossible to support the hyper-use of remote collaboration platforms as we are witnessing right now. WFH also explodes your regular network perimeter, bringing personal devices, unprecedented usage habits, and a growing reliance on web apps into the ambit.
This has its own set of security challenges, not to mention spreading the infrastructure so thin that productivity slows down.
Meanwhile, non-technical stakeholders would expect the enterprise to function almost as usual, given that the investment in digital transformation has already been made. The fact that companies are struggling to hit the ground running and shrink digitalization timelines from the expected quarters to the necessary weeks. One critical area suffers in the face of this unprecedented urgency: employee collaboration and productivity.
In this climate, IT is positioned not only as an enabler for the business but one of the key pillars for its success.
