Things are about to get real in so many ways. Companies are telling employees to work from home, which sounds great in theory — less contact, less chance for the COVID-19 virus to spread. But what about the strain it’s going to place on your IT infrastructure?
Your employees will be connecting over a remote virtual infrastructure (Citrix, VMware, AWS, etc) and accessing a variety of in-house web applications (Java, .NET etc.) and SaaS services (Office 365). Furthermore, you probably have 90-100% of employees remote – something no organization would have surely thought of.
All of this will disrupt IT in ways we have not planned for. For instance, in the UK, cellular networks are already experiencing problems as everyone talks to their colleagues, and across the EU, and this happened just on the first day when people began working from home. Microsoft Teams, the collaboration tool in the Microsoft Office 365 suite was down for a while as well.
You might already have some basic monitoring tools for checking availability and uptime, but with the amount of traffic and types of requests that are about to hit your servers in the next few weeks, you need help!
Availability and responsiveness of your IT applications and infrastructure is the key to ensure that remote employees are productive, and business continues as usual. And when you receive complaints, you need to be able to resolve them quickly.
