About this event:
Low budget, skills shortage, outdated equipment, what else can be added to the list of challenges for a public sector IT department? Perhaps remote regional teams, strained infrastructure, and new collaboration tools that have been bought about by a pandemic. From every day in the office, to every day at home the switch for the public sector has been monumental. Teams have had to adapt to virtual communication, managers are motivating teams from afar, and you’ve never been so hopeful that your staff cyber-security training has been absorbed.
Join us for this episode of Deskflix: Public Sector to hear from your peers about their experiences through Covid-19. Discuss with our panellists the tools they’ve used to overcome obstacles, and hear from our leading partners about how to strategize for the office of the future.
