A recent report from Gartner, a leading research and advisory company, provides details on how CIOs across the globe should prepare for a comeback after the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the likelihood of restrictions including travelling, social distancing, and working remotely remaining in place during 2021 and beyond, the list of short-term recommendations provides CIO’s not only a way to overcome these immediate restrictions but also a path to establishing the foundations for a more resilient long-term strategy.
Adopting a real-time native collaboration strategy can help tick the boxes for all these short-term recommendations. The concept is simple – think of adding a multiplayer functionality directly into any existing enterprise software application that you already use and therefore breaking out of existing data silos to embrace the benefits of real-time connectivity;
Multiple users working in real-time to recover the frequent ad-hoc team interactions that were taken for granted in an office environment.
Preserve existing security protocols and avoid the need to add further software layers to already complex software stacks.
Share a single source of truth so that users may work together on the same dataset, saving time and effort exporting/importing data for standalone applications.
