As companies review their existing and evolving IT requirements, a variety of measures should be considered to enable a remote workforce, embrace cloud solutions while focusing on security and cost management. 

Here are our top three tips:

1. Implement a modern workplace strategy

Creating an environment where employees work collaboratively and efficiently doesn’t have to be complex. Yes, it does involve technology, changing human behavior and the establishment of a best-practices framework. But there many technologies that can speed up those processes to quickly create a modern, collaborative workplace.
