The pandemic of Covid-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, whether it is in our daily activities or operationally, in our businesses. It is a huge challenge by itself, for firms to encounter and adapt to the myriad of possible changes no matter the size of the company. It has eventually left many organizations with no choice but to continue with their business activities and encouraging their employees to work from home wherever possible.
With this, the respective IT departments of organizations have to step up their game with the new normal in managing new major responsibilities, chief of which is in the strategic re-deployment of employees to their different geographical locations. They have to provide ample support for their employees to complete their daily tasks, facilitating cross-departmental collaboration through cloud tools and most importantly, to rein in and minimize the loss of confidential data. All these sudden implementations have caught many IT departments off-guard, as it has become more demanding and challenging by the day.
