While we’re all feeling uplifted by the fact that a COVID-19 vaccination is on the horizon, businesses are still in need of solutions to help contain the spread before a full vaccine rollout takes place a few months from now. This is especially true as mobile workforces become hybrid, with some returning to the office before summer 2021.
The two main issues in IT departments around the world this year consisted of how to efficiently roll out a remote workforce and then how to welcome back at least part of that workforce under certain conditions.
The latter is a process still happening today, and will only continue to grow in importance as we get closer to widespread vaccine availability.
Thousands of solutions revolving around remote work and reopening have surfaced incredibly fast this year, proving just how adaptive the technology industry can be to unexpected and highly-specific circumstances.
IT teams had to scramble to roll out solutions that kept employees and the company secure as threat actors ramp up their attacks.
Some technology infrastructure may not have been available, while a lack of sufficient connectivity was a prevailing concern for remote workforces.
IT organizations were scrambling to understand the effectiveness of their tech.
Even now that organizations have evened-out their operations, they’re facing a brand new challenge: determining what their workplaces will look like and how they will operate in the time right before vaccinations take place.
We’ve put together this list of COVID technology solutions which will help with specific challenges related to containing the virus. From hybrid work solutions, to contact tracing, to temperature scanning…we hope this list will benefit you in your quest to create the safest possible workforce in what we hope to be the final months of the coronavirus pandemic.
