The ongoing pandemic has literally pushed the boundaries of what used to be called “normal”. Millions of organizations were forced to evolve digitally to serve customers in a completely new manner.
Digital technologies such as the Cloud have remained at the forefront of making this change possible in the most seamless way possible. What we see at the frontend is a “tip of the iceberg”, when compared to the sheer scale of evolution at the backend level.
Fast Track Digitalization
This pandemic has induced enterprises to undertake digital transformation at an unprecedented pace. A recent study published by management consulting firm McKinsey & Company reveals promising insights about the pace of digital transformation.

As per the research, supply chain, customer interaction and internal operations have achieved digitization that amounts to four years of work just during the pandemic. Digitally enabled products and services have seen an acceleration of nearly seven years.
Hybrid Work Environments
Whenever the pandemic subsides and we start heading back to “normal”, things may not fully revert to the pre pandemic stage. Instead, we expect that hybrid work environments should become the new trend, with remote work set to becoming a permanent feature.
Under these circumstances, organizations that want to remain competitive and agile will have to brace for fast track digitization. Before this pandemic, digital transformation was considered a good thing to have, while it has now become an absolute necessity.

Remote Work and Productivity
In the post pandemic scenario, no digital transformation can be fully complete without a robust remote work strategy and platform in place. This view is fully supported by the productivity levels of remote workers recently reported across USA.
Some of these stats will completely baffle even the most vocal skeptics of remote work. Since the start of the pandemic, employees across USA have saved more than 89 million hours per week in commute time alone. Most of this has enhanced productivity.

Fully Enabled Remote Work Environments
Saving the commute to the workplace alone won’t do wonders. Instead, companies will have to transform the entire remote work environment into a cohesive whole. It all starts by giving your remote employees seamless access to all the data and tools they need.
Another key component of the new work ecosystem is security of your remote work platforms. This is yet another area where the Cloud shines with its multi-layered security, which is further augmented with identity and access management solutions.
