2021 Collaboration Will Demand More Remote Services

The impact [in 2021] of COVID-19 on remote working and remote learning is super obvious. Gartner predicts that almost 50 percent of enterprise employees will continue to work remotely -- and we’re seeing that too, at least some of the time. That’s going to mean that [businesses] are going to have to have a work set up at home, and a work step up at work. That could be good for us and our industry. But it also means they’re going to have to have some facility or some capability to drive some kind of collaboration. Whether that’s like the hotel-type workstations or things like collaboration zones because people are going to be coming in and out. They’ll come in for a specific purpose, which is to collaborate. And then if there doing solitary work, they’ll likely do that from home.

I think that means that not only do spaces have to be more flexible, but also the tools have to be more flexible and devices have to be more flexible. That’s hard. So those same studies talk about supporting a highly geographically diverse workforce is a lot harder for an IT team. So you have to have way more remote services, way more automation in the process and managing all those devices is a big opportunity for companies like Insight who have this underpinning supply chain capability but also the intimate relationship with customers to understand what they’re really trying to drive in their businesses.
