From the first days of the pandemic, IT leaders have had to grapple with unexpected circumstances — from transitioning thousands of employees to working from home, to near overnight platform rollouts in support of virtual teams. And for many, culture has proven to be the key factor in their organizations’ ability to navigate unprecedented times.
In our experience working with customers around the globe this year, companies that had not established a resilient, transformation-focused and collaborative culture struggled with the global disruptions to business as usual. But the good news is that we have also seen many organizations that either pivoted to or had already embraced a transformation mindset.
These organizations were better equipped to meet the challenges of their rapidly changing environment and to protect both the health and productivity of their teams and their bottom lines.
In fact, we have seen that those business and IT leaders who did prepare are making major strides together to transform and adapt new, innovative technology to meet market demands. We are proud to offer a team and a platform that enables IT leaders to become agile, adjust their strategies to align with business, and nurture new approaches to work – which have proved to be the keys to achievement this year, despite the obstacles.
