During the first weeks of the exposure to the new coronavirus pandemic, companies were busy with finetuning their BCP (Business Continuity Planning) policies and test whether it works well in real-life scenarios.
The buzz words of AI and RPA took the back seat and practical challenges become the driver of the digitalization exercise, like “do we have enough laptops and VPN connection” or “do our colleagues have good bandwidth internet to access the servers”, not to mention the GDPR rules in this new environments.
On the other hand, we believe that companies should find the opportunities during these difficult times to rethink the execution of their digital strategies with fixing the basics right this time.
