To maintain productivity and organizational collaboration, companies accelerated migration of some of their business compute out of private data centers to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, like Microsoft Office 365, and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS), such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Cisco Webex Teams.
The rise of the distributed workforce, necessitated by the pandemic, has led to a modern employee base that encompasses a geographically scattered, domestic, and international population. Digital transformations in cloud, Co-los, internet of things, SDN & SD-WANs, as well as SaaS & UCaaS have all combined to make it possible for employees to work basically anywhere the internet reaches.
While some employees will return to company-operated facilities over the next several months, many are predicted to remain home-based or hybrid. Ensuring parity in user experience with SaaS and UCaaS, regardless of the employee’s location, will be essential in maintaining workplace productivity and business objectives.
