Technology amidst COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed life as we know it. Millions lost their jobs, businesses were halted, cities and countries went on lockdown, and months after the first outbreak it is still not showing any signs of letting up. Even when life starts to go back on track, we all know it is never going to be the same again. The uncertainty of the time is the only thing that is certain at this point.
As an organisational entity, let us choose to see this pandemic situation as a rare opportunity to rethink our operations. We were all obliged to adjust to the demands of the time, such as running a remote workplace, using cloud-based tools, and relying heavily on technology just to keep our businesses alive. This just shows that innovative changes will be the new norm, and that information through the use of technology will become even more fundamental to our lives.
Everyone wants to go back to life as it used to be, but let us not forget the things we learned from this experience. We now have every reason to rethink our lives and our cities, and now, more than ever, is the best time to choose to innovate.
