This year’s lockdowns provided another proof point of why enterprise cloud will be so important to our future. While lockdowns themselves are temporary measures, they shone a spotlight on the advantages of cloud in business continuity. Those who were not dependent on on-site infrastructure, and had advanced digital maturity, were able to easily adapt to a remote or distributed workforce.
It’s common for IT teams today to spend significant amounts of time managing and maintaining onsite infrastructure. Not only can this lead to inefficiencies and higher associated costs, but it meant that many organisations found it difficult to function at all without IT available on site. As many organisations contemplate a long-term transition towards distributed or hybrid working environments, it’s become crucial for businesses to reduce their reliance on onsite infrastructure. For IT, device fleets are an important consideration: How can organisations set up, manage, and monitor remote devices in an effective way? However, with more advanced cloud-based print management tools and services now available, IT teams can feel confident that they can keep their fleets running from anywhere.
