The unprecedented spread of COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. Everyone has felt its effects, regardless of their position on the economic, political, or sociological plane. Amidst the chaos, there is a particular way in which businesses have been affected, and this includes coming to a grinding halt, in some cases. This situation has taught that agile companies need to plan for a range of exigencies to ensure business continuity.
The current situation has changed the way we operate forever & so have the enterprise demands. A few weeks back, the majority of discussions were focused on productivity & cost. But, the moment the COVID-19 wave struck, the conversation changed into accessibility, security & performance for the maximum workforce while WFH. Enterprises had tough times executing the BCP’s because it was a first time experience and the scenario simulation had never been fathomed.

Provisioning WFH for entire/partial workforce would need meticulous planning, a relook to our Business Processes, Workforce Productivity, real-time decision making, sudden change in the volume & IT Systems Resilience (Capacity & Performance, NW & Sec, Monitoring etc.) & all of this would undoubtedly need additional investment.
Enterprises are going through challenging times and are under financial pressure. Yet, the ‘’CIO’’ office would be expected to achieve
Quest for Solution to Outmaneuver Uncertainty

The market today has plethora of solutions around WFH / remote access etc. Standard build under pay-as-you-go Model, Or Custom-built on-premise solutions. Both having their own pros and cons.
