The world had come to a screeching halt at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Once lined by the fluorescent glow of brick-and-mortar offices bustling with employees, streets became dark and empty. Their doors, and the traditional networks behind them, were locked. Indefinitely.

In these uncertain times, organizations knew their business was at stake. Remote network connectivity, once a nice-to-have, had become a need-to-have. IT teams went to work, racing to transform their traditional network operations into a hybrid model. And seemingly overnight, they fast-tracked the adoption of IT solutions they would have otherwise implemented gradually.

In today’s hybrid world, companies have to adapt and make way for digital transformation. They must offer agile, inclusive work experiences that attract and retain the best talent. This is only possible with the right collaboration tools—and the IT professionals who have the skillset to integrate them seamlessly.

The only constant in the world of technology is that it is ever-changing. And where there are business challenges, there are opportunities that await those with the desire to learn, upskill, and rise to the occasion. That being said, when it comes to these challenges in collaboration, our organizations need a hero. Here’s how you can become the collaboration hero our organizations need.
