Some form of disruption is inevitable – it’s how we respond to disruption that counts. This year we’ve seen many of our customers quickly adapt to changing conditions and achieve new levels of success while doing so.
Because we all rely so heavily on technology, our technology strategy plays a major role in how well prepared we are for the next disruption. With that in mind, here are some strategies you can consider for creating a more resilient workforce technology environment.
Know where your data is, or will be – No matter your industry, your business is now run by data. It isn’t until we can’t access data, or we lose it, that we realise how crucial it is. This is why it’s essential to have reliable cloud storage, along with backup and disaster recovery solutions that can restore your business in even the worst-case scenarios.
Keep your people secure, wherever they are – Regardless of how secure your network and your database are, it is people, devices and applications that access data. Endpoint security through regularly patched and updated devices is your first line of defence against cyber-attacks.
Connect people to each other and customers – We’ve all done more than our fair share of web meetings this year, and this trend is set to be part of the new normal. With the right secure tools, you can keep teams connected to each other and projects. More importantly, you can stay connected to your customers in any scenario with the right cloud tools.
Leverage managed services – No IT team is an island. To cope with the complex technology landscape today, you need to create an ecosystem of reliable technology partners. This allows you to lean on their experience and skills when you need it the most.
Find the right devices – Although there was an element of urgency, we managed to connect Kiwi businesses to the devices they needed this year. Now we see more organisations embracing device delivery and management services that offer the flexibility to get the right devices to the right people, wherever they’re located.
