Ensuring business continuity during COVID-19. A wake-up call

As the majority of the world is on lockdown, businesses have had to follow government regulations by shutting their doors. This has been a trying time for everyone. Small and medium-sized businesses don’t necessarily have the expertise or infrastructure for a “work from home” environment to resume business continuity during COVID-19. It’s time to take a hard look at the technology systems used in business processes.

The problem

Both businesses and individuals are dealing with the stress of the unknown. Both in terms of health and financial stability as we await the unconfirmed day-to-day business continuity during COVID-19. It is important to take note of whether businesses lack the infrastructure currently to continue operations, or whether a cloud-based solution would be applicable to them. Business owners need to use this time to review and research the solutions available. Businesses need to reflect on how they can upgrade and digitally transform their businesses to ensure sustainability to accommodate online and remote working environments.

The reality

Microsoft has seen a 775% surge in the demand for cloud-based services from the start of the coronavirus outbreak. Microsoft Teams has come to be a platform that companies have become dependent on daily for communication and collaboration. Power BI, Microsoft’s business intelligence reporting platform, grew by 42% in one week due to its ability to share COVID-19 dashboards and reports around the globe. The tech giant is living up to its expectations of businesses around the world by offering powerful and intelligent tools. These tools keep companies operational and give staff and customers the comfort that it is “business as usual”.

The solution
