The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the entire global economy to a screeching halt. As we write this post, almost all major countries of the world are under lockdown, forcing everyone to stay indoors. Only essential services remain open and people have been strictly advised to stay within the safety of their homes. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the virus, especially our healthcare professionals.
Ever since we set foot in the digital age, a global shutdown of this magnitude has never been witnessed. Some countries of the world are entering their fourth or even fifth week of lockdown, with the end nowhere in sight.
This has brought businesses across the globe to a screeching halt. Nearly all sectors of the economy have been shut down to contain the rapid spread of this deadly virus among humans. So, the only viable option for businesses now is remote work.
Covid-19 and Preparedness of Businesses
The Covid-19 pandemic has caught most businesses across the globe severely off guard. Nearly all businesses have some sort of a Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) plan in place, but a global pandemic has mostly never been a contingency.
Granted that the idea of remote work or Work from Home (WFH) is not new in some business sectors but the sheer scale of this remote work situation is beyond the capacity of even the most resourceful organizations.
Traditionally, not even 5% of an organization’s total employees work from home, while the rest turn up physically to the workplace to perform their assigned tasks. So, most businesses were simply not prepared to cope with this rapid and massive change.
Cloud Computing as the Savior of Businesses
While cloud computing may not be the answer to problems of every industry such as the manufacturing sector, it has immense potential to serve your Business Continuity (BC) challenges amid this global pandemic.
The most vital goal in such circumstances is to resurrect critical business processes remotely, from the safety of homes. In these times when global supply chains are severely disrupted, organizations simply cannot set up in house infrastructure.
Even if you procured the hardware somehow, how would you find the professionals to set up your on premise hardware? Due to these circumstances, the Cloud has emerged as the true savior for millions of businesses across the globe.
