Liran Eshel, CTERA Networks co-founder and CEO, shared his thoughts on how the response to COVID-19 situation is accelerating the global data sharing among data scientists and medical researchers to solve the problem. They are getting data from all over the world streamlined and normalized for analysis. He also believes the post-Coronavirus business world will be impacted with new travel restrictions, office restrictions, data distancing pushing data to different regions, BC plans, and pandemic regulations.
Future will be remote
The technology industry is in shock with 80 to 90% of people working remotely. After things begin getting back to normal, he expects 50% to 60% of workers to continue working remotely from home offices and branch offices. There will be remote data access from files, servers, and remote desktops. Remote collaboration will take place with file sharing and co-editing. While remote IT will have centralized management with no on-site workers.
IT is facilitating the transition to remote work in near real-time with video conferencing, file services, VPN, VDI, mobile, remote IT support, DevOps, and cloud. Companies now see the need for all of these solutions and are adopting them quickly.
