What a year 2020 has been! We’re all living through a shared experience, where everyone has been forced to navigate challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. And in this new reality, far-reaching changes have been made to ensure public safety, some of which will continue well into the future.

The COVID-19 crisis is everywhere and affecting everyone, especially IT professionals. During this time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, like many other enterprises around the world, Spiceworks Ziff Davis has also made work-from-home (WFH) mandatory for all employees globally. While this ensures the protection of our employees, it has caused great disruption because not every team was set up for immediate and effective remote work.
