Pandemic restrictions have pushed workers in practically every role out of their comfort zone, forcing them to log onto work from the home environments that used to be their “escape” from the 9-to-5.

To say we’re living in unprecedented times would be an understatement. But researchers at the London School of Economics (LSE) have pulled out the data to officially understand how business leaders are navigating the current “disruption” to the way we work (namely, pandemic-related decentralization) and the role of digital technologies in providing short- and long-term solutions.

The pandemic has turned popular opinion of the office-centric corporate model on its head. But have recent global events actually doomed the enterprise office forever?

We can’t predict the future, but the odds of the US enterprise workforce heading back to the office en masse before the end of the summer (if not 2020) are looking slim. That means that enterprise teams are going to have to get comfortable with the “last mile” residential ISP connections their WFH users leverage to access the network. But...

Prior to the global pandemic, SD-WAN was among the leading digital transformation initiatives in the enterprise space, as IT teams deployed this tech to help to connect their increasingly distributed remote office footprint.
