BetterCloud’s CEO and Dropbox’s CTO share their visions for IT shepherding in a new era of frictionless work
Your leadership team came to you in a hurry, saying “make remote work happen.” The final stages of a decade-long move to SaaS were compressed into just a few weeks. Months later, companies are assessing the future of the workplace and the evolution of collaboration.
One thing is guaranteed: IT’s seat at the leadership table is secure. So what’s next?
- The future of end user productivity & collaboration: End users want to use best-of-breed applications at home, how will IT respond? And will shadow IT become obsolete? How can IT unlock the full potential of their SaaS apps?
- The future of your physical & digital workspace: Will the office still be the center of productivity? What are the advantages of being in an office vs. being at home? Will SaaS environments become even more heterogeneous in the future?
- The future of SaaS security: How can companies become more secure and at the same time become more flexible to allow everyone to be more productive? Is invisible, guardrail security the future?
