Many researchers suggest that an organization’s success will not rely on their growth or profit, but merely by their competency to survive in the market and not being broke.

The rampant pandemic is not only a threat to mankind but also to organizations of all sizes to sustain their business across industries. Apart from the threat to our lives, the virus has changed our daily routine, work-life and resulted in economic crisis and business disruption because of its spread at an alarming rate. Organizations are struggling to keep their business going to serve their end customers and support them amidst the chaos. They have adopted various new methods like supporting their employees to work remotely, allow flexible work hours, and conduct online meetings to stay connected, etc.  The question is that are these enough to achieve your business goals?

The answer is mostly negative.

Why you may ask. This is mainly because of the fact that the organizations need to cut costs as much as they can since they are recently facing serious challenges in terms of revenue and trying to offer their best solutions and services at this time is highly pricey. As far as the IT industry is considered, having their resources work remotely requires to provide them with the necessary devices, tools, and software. Assuming the fact that they are provided with all the above, the employees should have a secured as well as good internet connection to get their work done. Lastly, even if both of the above challenges are addressed, it is comparatively difficult to work in collaboration with their teammates or others from a remote environment. Even if one of the three is missing, the entire team’s productivity will be variably low impacting customer retention and brand value.

Mobility Barriers

Having restricted global mobility in most of the countries it is just too expensive and a tedious task to commute or exchange mechanical devices for the software industry to perform testing their web and mobile apps. There are not many stores opened to purchase any new device and lack of service centers for device services and issues fixes leaves the QA team with no options at all. Also, for uniform results, all the team members should have access to the same devices for testing. To worsen the situation, they are also expected to conduct multi-OS testing for various devices.

Cloud is the Gateway
