COVID-19 Sees Marked Rise in Digital Transformation Amongst Businesses

by Gina Luk | Mar 05, 2021

COVID-19 has changed the velocity of digital transformation and this year's predictions from Mobile Workforce Strategies are shaped by the disruptive forces of the COVID-19 pandemic, which will dramatically alter the global business ecosystem for the next 12 months and beyond. Organizations will need to put a higher priority at their digital strategy and rethink their competitive advantages in the market.

According to a new Strategy Analytics report, “7 Predictions For Enterprise Mobility in 2021”, the pandemic has placed a huge burden on businesses to become flexible, agile, and safe, both for their workforces and, in many cases, business survival, so the priority is to act, rather than react. It is clear that digital transformation is accelerating as a result, forcing us to rethink traditional ways of working. This transformation is not just changing how we work with IT, office tools and administrative systems, but is also creating new business opportunities.

That is why businesses need to be able to adapt and respond to business disruptions. In the midst of combating COVID-19 pandemic, even companies that had said no to BYOD have come to terms with it, as a fair share of remote work would not even be possible without such a policy. We see BYOD becoming a business imperative and digitalization a necessity, with core technologies such as cloud, 5G, AI, VR, AR facilitating business transformation in 2021.

In summary, below are the top 7 trends for Enterprise Mobility in 2021:

  1. BYOD is no longer a choice, but more of an inevitability
  2. Multicloud will take business to the next phase of innovation
  3. Work from home outlasts Covid-19
  4. Microsoft, Google, Zoom, Cisco, AWS fight head-to-head, but the market will not consolidate
  5. Home office is where the mobile security attacks will happen in 2021
  6. 5G connections will grow 98-fold in 2 years but 4G will continue to dominate
  7. Automation isn’t enough – we need Hyperautomation
