Coronavirus prep could spark better disaster recovery
Backup and disaster recovery systems often do not get the respect or budget that they deserve, and despite its potentially dire dangers, the coronavirus COVID-19 could actually help change that.

Prepare for a mobile workforce
Most employees are already very mobile and do most of their work on laptops and mobile devices, so it’s perfectly reasonable to think that your company is prepared for a mobile workforce.

Don’t underestimate the degree to which face-to-face interaction is at the core of how you do business.
