The past year has led to workplace transformation unlike ever before as various industries have been forced to adapt to a pandemic that kept billions of people home.
History has proven that in times of crises, society undergoes massive transformations that forever reshape the landscape of how we live, work and operate on a daily basis.
For the Covid-19 pandemic in particular, the biggest change derived from the converging of three technology trends: automation, data economy and the future of work.
Cloud computing and other forms of automation have gone from being a cost efficient method of workplace operations, to a necessary tool for modernization and simplification. While the past year has driven the pace in which companies adopt these advanced technologies, it now requires improvements to stay on top of the latest innovations.
The data economy has also seen its own transformation, from being viewed as a collateral asset to a high-priority means of durability. Data insights are changing business models, allowing businesses to have a first-hand view of how clients and employees are interacting with companies.
Lastly, the future of work concept that has long been discussed is already here. Because so many professionals had to transition to remote working, the view of workplace arrangements and the tools that are needed for these environments have driven resiliency and the evolution of business models.
