As we work through the immediate existential concerns of the coronavirus crisis, organizations all over the world are wondering what comes next.
While there is little certainty if/when business returns to normal, one thing is abundantly clear: Organizations that replaced hard-coded legacy systems with full-on cloud services – and modernized their data and software engineering to become more agile and resilient – are well positioned to survive the current crisis and emerge stronger once the virus recedes. These organizations are typically better equipped to deliver modern customer and employee experiences that make virtual work nearly equivalent to being physically present.
