By summertime, nearly half of the U.S. workforce reported working from home full-time. Even after the pandemic, many employees will continue to work remotely at least part-time.

Long before 2020, work-at-home numbers began a steady climb. Remote work benefits businesses by reducing overhead costs and allowing hiring managers to seek talent without regard to location. On the other hand, workers benefit from increased flexibility, often reporting greater productivity when they work from home. At the same time, remote work…

Eliminate the Server Room to Optimize Your Post-COVID-19 Business

As we noted in a recent post, on-premises computer systems have seen a gradual decline since cloud computing gained popularity over a decade ago. And, with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis accelerating that trend, businesses that still have onsite servers should consider a decision to eliminate the server room now and post-COVID-19. For one, the work from home (WFH) pattern might continue for a long time. Many employers have announced the extension of WFH policies through the fall and into next year. Regardless of how COVID-19 plays out, businesses of all sizes can and should consider the best use of their…

Do I Need a Traditional Office in the Post-COVID World?

As nations and states outline plans for reopening, businesses need to decide what normal will look like in the post-pandemic world.

Is COVID-19 the Last Nail in the Coffin for On-premises Systems?

On-premises computer systems (servers and desktop applications) have seen a gradual decline since cloud computing gained popularity over a decade ago. The current COVID-19 crisis will certainly accelerate that trend. Some say it may deal a fatal blow to on-premises systems altogether. As we have seen, COVID-19 shifted working patterns to primarily work from home (WFH). That pattern might continue for a long time. For example, many companies could find that their WFH employees don’t want to return to the office when the restrictions have passed. Once they’ve had a taste of bedroom-to-home-office commutes and increased closeness to family, they…

4 Tips to Reduce Cloud Spending During COVID-19 and Beyond

Even before COVID-19 sent the workforce home, businesses anticipated steadily increased spending on cloud infrastructure. Now, cloud services take on an even greater importance. In the coming months and years, organizations will continue to increase cloud usage. But severe budgetary constraints will put pressure on IT managers to reduce cloud spending. For example, in 2019, Gartner estimated that organizations would spend over $206 billion on public cloud services, particularly Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). But they inserted a caution. $14.1 billion of that spending would go to waste, due to idle resources and oversized infrastructure. As businesses struggle through the…

Tips for Transitioning to Remote Work

Over a period of three weeks, most of the workforce in the United States found themselves transitioning to remote work. Fortunately, the trend toward digital transformation means that many businesses had already begun to adopt cloud-based tools and policies. However, this abrupt switch to fully-remote work has sent both employees and IT departments scrambling. Moving an entire workforce home virtually overnight brings unique challenges.
