This time last year, we didn’t see widespread, mandated ‘work from home’ in the tea leaves. But we have always been focused on keeping employees protected, connected, and productive outside the office. Now, we can only predict how the trends that emerged in 2020 will evolve over time as businesses place more emphasis on looking after their employees’ health while keeping them securely connected and productive.
COVID-19 forced companies to accelerate digital transformation efforts and cloud adoption. According to Gartner, by 2022, up to 60 percent of organizations will use an external service provider’s cloud-managed service offering, which is double the percentage of organizations from 2018. Decentralized IT is becoming the norm with data and services now being spread across a hybrid environment consisting of on-premises infrastructure, private and public cloud software deployments, and SaaS applications.
Companies now see remote access as a key corporate capability that must be planned and managed. Rather than using a jumble of open source, platform specific and paid subscriptions, CIOs are developing a consolidated remote access strategy. This approach greatly improves operational efficiencies, while saving money and mitigating security risks. By making a conscious choice to focus on a single remote access solution, companies can optimize their business and foster innovation.
Further, with 5G now a reality, people will want to do more on their mobile devices than ever before because it will be super snappy and an overall better user experience (for certain tasks) than pulling out their laptops. Equally, 5G will become a viable form of connectivity for more than just a smartphone; it will make a difference for people working from home on a laptop with high bandwidth needs. 5G will support a wide ecosystem of connected devices which is good news for businesses that rely on IoT technology. Additionally, eSIM will introduce mobile connectivity into smaller, lighter form factors, as well as large scale machine-to-machine deployments in the automotive and energy sectors.
