Remote Work Environments in the Cloud

To be more productive, companies must prioritize the activities they must carry out to guarantee an adequate Remote Work environment. Here you will learn about several of these.

New environments and new realities

Before the start of the pandemic, the number of people in the world who carried out work activities remotely reached nearly 260 million, equivalent to 7.9 percent of global employment, according to the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Since March 11, 2020, with the declaration of the pandemic caused by Covid 19, this work model has grown at an unprecedented rate. According to the ILO, in Europe, 24 percent of employees who had never done remote work and/or teleworking began to do so and in countries like Finland, 60 percent of employees adopted it. In the United States, 34 percent of workers responded that they were remote in a survey conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

These changes have led the world’s productive fleet to focus its efforts on the use of emerging technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution that provide security in this work model. The one they have opted for the most is the cloud and several international consulting firms such as Gartner and IDG Communications confirm that a considerable increase in budgets is expected to access cloud computing.

“…this new environment is essential for companies to know which public cloud environments are relevant for the operation and they must also be clear about which activities should be given priority to be carried out from said platforms.” Leonardo Suárez, CEO of Clouxter

Activities to prioritize

1. Companies must consider the value of using mobile devices and applications

Operationally, companies must consider the value of using mobile devices and applications. If before the pandemic, the number of these types of tools exceeded the number of inhabitants in the world according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), in the new reality an increase is expected especially with the needs that arise with work remote. At this point, it is key that the hyperscale cloud operator has solid capabilities to support such mobility.

2. Intensive use of video conferencing

It is a consequence of mobility and confinement restrictions to stop infections. In this context, the use of videoconferencing intensified in companies. Faced with this dynamic and in an environment in which bandwidth also causes problems in connections, cloud platforms must guarantee that said interaction is done without setbacks.

3. Collaboration and content management

A third point is collaboration and content management. Companies must develop actions such as the storage and collaboration of information with the use of cloud technology tools that allow users, among other activities, to perform multiple actions on the data such as queries.

4. Virtual desktops and remote workstation management

One scenario is virtual desktops and remote workstation management. This point is essential for remote work because employees must be guaranteed access to inputs such as applications and documents, in addition to facilitating their permanent connection from any geographical point.

Finally, companies must have the capacity to respond optimally to the consequences of natural disasters and those caused by humans in matters essential to their operation such as information and technology.

Its recovery and the restart of activities without effects are viable with the use of solutions that support these services. In a new work environment, the global productive park has a platform in the cloud to strengthen its productivity by ensuring remote work and adapting the different activities of its corporate work to emerging industry 2.0 technologies such as the cloud.
