Welcome to the New “Normal” where companies and people will have to work and live in socially distant and safer ways.
The Covid-19 crisis has changed the Irish economy and the way we work and do business, possibly forever.
But change brings opportunity, particularly for IT companies, as it is technology that has proven its value by enabling customers to continue to do business remotely during the lockdown.
On Wednesday June 24, join the MicroWarehouse and Microsoft webinar to discuss the New “Normal” Solution Opportunity: new ways you can think about your business, your business model and your solution offerings to take advantage of this massive disruption.
Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella recently said on his quarterly earnings calls that Microsoft has seen two years of digital transformation happen in just two months.
It is a phenomenal acceleration that is here to stay and creates huge potential for tech companies with the ambition to move forward rapidly.
A number of key factors provide the environment for continued opportunity.
• Remote working is here to stay: many employees like working from home and productivity has actually increased in many firms. People may want to dump the commute and use the extra time to stick with remote working.
• Socially-distanced office spaces: less people will be able to come into the office, so who needs to be in, how often they come in, brings significant changes, especially when you factor in the need for contact tracing.
• Technology has proven itself: to survive, companies will need to find nimble and innovative ways to manage their staff and business, reduce costs and become more productive.
The opportunity for IT companies is to build on the value of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to take advantage of the Microsoft Business Applications ecosystem.
The Power platform enables dataflow, process workflow, analysis, artificial intelligence and virtual agents so that it becomes much more straightforward to build lightweight and valuable applications.
Companies can gain more value from the software that they already own, can get more out of Microsoft Teams, drive better connected and efficient workforce extensions.
